Design Detail: Black Internal Doors


Apologies to my Gallerie B subscribers for this post being a day late.  We arrived home yesterday from a quick trip to Hayman Island (amazing!) and internet speed was frustratingly slow up there.  But more on that to come. Today’s post is about Black Internal Doors.  I recently noticed that these were a recurring theme in my Pinterest Boards (here).  There are many reasons I love this design detail. Black doors are elegant, especially when painted in a gloss. Black Internal Doors Gallerie B

They balance out the black ‘void’ of the TV. 719c915e11ad3ee204ea11ceaf7cf1a9

Black internal doors are suggestive of some special behind them. 7a0616e9a519c3ecad0c78d87975c45b

They make a feature of a beautiful window.



And a fairly standard door seem more special. 2cfd0a580cda638762a00269c14c5931

I am definitely considering including a black internal door or two in the new build. What do you think?

    • Hi Dee, thanks so much. I wish I could lay claim to designing any of these gorgeous spaces above. Unfortunately I’m not sure which black gloss paint was used but maybe if you check out the designer’s link below the image, they may be able to help you. Good luck! x

  1. They love amazing. I’m wondering how the black doors would look if walls are painted a color other than white. My walls are a gray/blue hue.

    • Thanks Ruth. The second image via Martha O’Hara Design shows a room with soft gray walls which would definitely work, as long as it’s not too dark. Good luck!
