New Front Door 





I finally decided on a front door today. I had been looking off and on for a long time since I wanted something a little modern and different from the front door I have right now.



The new door had to have some windows and I had thought these would look nice. The problem with the first door was the fact that it had large pieces of glass and I didn’t think I would feel secure. The vertical one was cool but I didn’t think it worked with my house.

I thought the idea of having horizontal slats would be the best but narrower.

The first thing I had to do though was figure out the direction my door was facing for feng shui purposes. I don’t necessarily follow it but figured it never hurts to have good ju-ju. 🙂 I got a compass and it showed that my door faced North. My original idea of having a red door wasn’t going to work and I was a little bummed out. (Always wanted a red door but it was not meant to be) A blue or black door, however, would work.


So today, I put in an order for this door (probably this very model which is a mahogany with an ebony finish) and this handleset – Emtek’s Davos in a satin nickel. I originally thought a flat black finish would look amazing but wasn’t sure how the Texas weather would treat the flat black in 5-10 years. The inside lever would be the same as my existing ones (Stuttgart).

They’ll be at the house to measure and tally up the cost (eeks!).
