The Barn

Having grown up riding and spending a LOT of time at the barn, a certain nostalgia comes over me when I see anything barn or horse related. When I came across the above image, I started thinking about the barn door for the interior....and then I got a little google image happy! Below are some of the most fab interior applications of barn doors. Specifically, sliding barn doors.

Love this black and white scheme designed by Darryl Carter. Notice how the track makes an L shape above the doorways on the perpendicular walls. I also love that the black is echoed in the flooring and the beams on the ceiling.

Red bard door? Got it!  Bestor Architecture separated the space in this home with the traditional red barn door, freshened up with a heavy dose of lacquer!

 These sliding doors maintain the integrity and grain of the original barn or carriage house they belonged to.

 The sliding barn door can be a very simple and creative way to separate a small space. I love the idea of creating a mini-pantry! Image from Smitten Design
