Interior Barn Doors

it's monday and i personally am looking forward to a new week and a clean slate after last week. we had two sick kiddos all last week, first one then the other, and if you saw my instagram stories then you know we took a trip to the ER with charlie. it's so hard and sad and scary as a parent not being able to help your child feel better. he had a nasty virus that had him throwing up and completely dehydrated. we got a little medicine and a lot of IV fluids in him and he perked right up! in fact he recovered so well that he was begging us to go into boston for a little staycation we had already planned. so we went to the hotel saturday night and had the best sleep - i think everyone was exhausted. yesterday we took the boys to their first red sox game and at least ended the weekend on a major high! thank you again for all the messages, it really helps a lot. and i also have the best friends in the world who brought me lunch and came to visit. 💙 ok enough about that!

we are in a serious state of affairs in our office with a lack of any privacy whatsoever. it's just one big wide opening into that room and nearly impossible to have a phone call or meeting without hearing a barking dog or little voices playing. the options are 1. add french doors (but i'm feeling meh about that idea.) 2. add pocket doors (i like that idea a whole lot but it's also quite expensive and involves a good amount of construction) 3. add a set of barn doors (as long as the design stays clean). so i think we're leaning toward option 3 but i'm not into rustic barn doors with lots of heavy hardware. and i think i'd mount the doors inside the office so you don't see the hardware from the entry.

so i'm been on a mission to find design that i like and here are a few images i've pinned...

these doors are massive and i love the handle.

i'm drawn to so many parts of this photo - the shiplap walls, the pretty doors, and of course that rug (which we have in our office right now!).

mr. r likes the idea of windows at the top. i'm still thinking about that idea.

so clean and pretty. i just can't say no to white shiplap.

these paneled doors are gorgeous and i love the natural wood. not sure it would work well in our house because of the color of our wood floors (rant for another day!) but the style of these doors is definitely on my radar.

just so pretty. and this looks like the same casings we have in our house. i almost don't even notice the hardware here. something to consider!

I like the last picture. The light blue. I really prefer barn door in basements. I think they are bulky.
