Needing, Wanting, Loving: Upholstered Doors

Happy Monday!  Is everyone surviving the frigid weather?  It was definitely a shock to go from lying on the beach in Miami to trudging through the NY snow in 20 degree weather.  Since it was snowing for most of the weekend, I stayed inside and did some work around our apartment, including re-painting my bathroom and bathroom ceiling.  Nothing is more terrifying than painting a ceiling and praying paint doesn't drip down in to your eye.  I also stopped by the MoMa to see a few new exhibits and checked out a new mezcal bar in Soho- Ghost Donkey. It has the coolest decor and the drinks were excellent, so I highly recommend it!  Now, on to today's lustful topic- upholstered doors.  I have a serious obsession with quirky, interesting doors and upholstery just takes a door to the next level.   Adding a nailhead trim is practical in the sense that you need to cover the edges of the fabric, but can also be decorative when applied in a pattern:

Applying the nailhead trim in an inset framed pattern gives the illusion that the door has panelling:

This rich leather door is a perfect entry to a wine cellar.  I love the brass zigzag pattern of the nailheads, as well:

Miles Redd's zebra doors have become infamous (and are my personal favorite):

Dying to try this on a door of your own?  Here's a DIY tutorial from Design*Sponge.

I hope you have a great week!
