Let's Go Dutch

I love dutch doors.  Maybe it's from watching Mr. Ed on television as a little girl.  Not sure.  But if I could design a house it would certainly have at least one dutch door, looking out onto a patio or small garden.  Or maybe it is the "horse person" in me that loves this look because it reminds me of a barn.

 Another theory is that Americans are so consumed with air conditioning that they would never put a dutch door in a house, at least in the east or the south. I don't like air conditioning.  If you are cleaver you might include a dutch door inside as well for the air conditioning obsessed house owner.

A dutch door can add charm and sophistication to a plain looking home:

Adding a splash of color really works here:

I simply love the "stable influence"

Happy Wednesday!
