What design elements have you ever envisioned for your home?
For some reason, I’ve been thinking about Dutch doors a lot lately. Dutch or stable or half doors are doors that are horizontally split in half. This allows one to open up the top half for warm light and a cool breeze while allowing the bottom half to be shut. Or conversely, one could open up the bottom half and allow small children or animals in and out easily. It is definitely whimsical and I’d love to see it in a country or summer home. I could imagine opening up the top half to enjoy the light from the late afternoon and passing some fresh fruit or pastries to family members waiting outside.
It is also interesting to think of a Dutch door for a kid’s room. The last Dutch door by Kidtropolis is beyond adorable…hmm, maybe some day…
In the meantime, here are a few favorite examples of Dutch doors:
