sadly, we’re not all blessed with the heights of these grand arched entrances or epic tall ceilings, but it doesn’t mean we can’t worship them from afar, or try and emulate the look in one way or another. beautiful old doors like these are mostly prominent in europe, or old victorians scattered through the states, but you can also often find them in your local salvage yard, and very inexpensively. when i bought my old house, i didn’t care for the rather expected plain, plywood doors, so we went to the nearest salvage yard and bought old, vintage ‘real wood’ doors with beautiful molding (five in all for under $200), repaired them (painted them black!) and installed them and it made a world of difference. i even found glass-paned doors which i love and really add something special to the look of a room. then, add pretty white porcelain (i found mine on amazon) or brass doorknobs and you’re well on your way to creating your own grand entrances!
