A barn door design to crow about

I am seeing an increasing trend toward  the use of barn or warehouse style doors in homes & I have to say I really do like this style when done right.

Used as the entrance door to this house, a large door like this gives me a feeling of security, it looks like a big strong door that protects & keeps its occupants nice & safe

These gorgeous doors on the left really are a feature for this room

Certainly an office space I could be inspired by...

The timber of this door along side the vase of sticks & leather couch really add warmth & texture to an otherwise all white scheme.

So many styles & uses for barn doors, they really add to the farm house feel of this gorgeous kitchen.

A fabulous pop of yellow would be a cheery sight to wake up to in the mornings, this door adds so much character to a more contemporary styled room.

Welcome to my humble abode....

What an inviting entrance,
I can envision some wonderful little fairy lights entwined amongst the ivy, that lines the ceiling over the entry .
It would look rather magical, don't you think?
