Diary of a Mad Renovator: Focusing on the Focal Point

Written by Jaqui Lividini

Have I told you yet about our carriage doors? Many times now I think, but they deserve mentioning again. They are, in a word, magnificent!

Based on the antique carriage doors I found in Maine (described in an earlier post), these are the modern-day version—they actually swing open with a push of a button and their big, bold character makes them the true focal point of the property. 

As you know, the original antique doors were found in Maine—a place that continues to be a source of design inspiration for me. I’ve discovered so many signature pieces and fixtures for our home there. We even found the appropriate lighting fixture— white and antique-like— to complement the doors perfectly. Now all we need is to create a driveway that is worthy of the doors. 

The way things are going lately, I am confident that will happen.
