Inspiration for an Inviting Midcentury Modern Front Door

Stonework and a modern front door make a welcoming front feature in this mid-century home.

The front door on our midcentury modern abode is solid hardwood and remains in great condition thanks to years of good care, and the thoughtful addition of a storm door. It’s one of those features that is original to the house’s 1950s construction, a door style that I appreciate and want to embrace and preserve. While the white paint has held up well and has protected the wood itself from the seasonal elements in New York, adding color to the exterior of my home has always been a consideration, and I’d probably start by refreshing the front door.
