Montage: 22 Exterior Glass Doors

This very minute I’m in the quad awaiting the annual Maypole dances at my son’s school. It’s gorgeous out —green, flowering, and sunny. When the kids were small, I’d perch on the playground bench equipped with my laptop. These days, it just doesn’t seem worth the effort since conditions are less than ideal. Although we live on the “garden” level, first floor Back Bay, Boston condos aren’t outfitted with much in the way of outdoor space. On  a whim, we looked at two houses across the river in Cambridge. One had such a lovely city-like patio and yard, I was tempted.

I’ve pulled together a collection of 22 exterior spaces all accessed by wonderful (mostly) glass exterior doors. There are the obvious sliding doors and French doors, but these are unique wood slat and metal-frame versions. I’ve included plenty of traditionally-hinged doors, though their shape, size, and applications are anything but run-of-the-mill. An  accordion door is incredibly appealing, and sadly not so common in the Northeast. (One could do accordion room dividers, however. I’ve seen a few amazing photos of these on Pinterest.) Interiors with sliding barn doors have become hugely popular; I found one outdoor example, included here. The most amazing exterior doors, aside from having a garage door in your living room, which I’ve always thought was cool, are glass pivot doors. I’ve found a number of gorgous examples for you. Every category could easily get its own post—which do you like best?

Montage: 38 Modern Houses with Black Exteriors

All black ensembles aren’t the only ultra dark looks I’m obsessed with these days. I’ve also been noticing tons of contemporary residences with exteriors clad in, painted, and in some cases weathered (I think) to the darkest black. I’m especially attracted to the homes with strikingly simple silhouettes, almost rustic, but made modern by their overall blackness. Here’s a collection of 38 such architectural examples. Do you have any favorites here? Would you want to live in one? I think I remember reading in Architectural Digest that Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan’s Hamptons house is painted black, and the neighbors complained.
