The Most Popular Door in Town

I’ve been thinking about a new storm door for my house for a long, long time.  I finally decided on a Chippendale door that I’ve noticed is very popular in my town.  It could be popular elsewhere and I’ve just not noticed.
I took a walk one afternoon this week and used it as an opportunity to photograph doors.  Every house featured in this post has a Chippendale door.
Are you not sure what I mean by a Chippendale door?  Take a look!

Are you ready for some house eye candy?  The first two houses are pretty close to mine.  I have even dreamed about the second one.  Am I weird or what?

This is my next door neighbor’s house:

Now don’t you think that a Chippendale door will be perfect for my house?

After one more coat of paint, followed by attaching the hinges and door knob, my house will proudly show off a Chippendale door of its own.  I can’t wait!

  1. Great door! Who makes these?

  2. You live in such a pretty neighborhood Paula. I do think those screen doors are pretty. I think I’d like to have one on my kitchen door.

  3. Mom on the Run says:

    So beautiful…that’s exactly the style of house I’ve always wanted. It makes walking and running such a pleasure when there’s pretty stuff to see!

  4. My goodness! That is such a pretty neighborhood! I love all those pretty houses!

    The door is very nice. It will look beautiful on your house too. Heck, it might look good on my house, and no one in my neighborhood has such a pretty storm door!

  5. I loved looking! I soooo love this style house and yes yours will look great when you add it. Be sure to show it off!

  6. Oh my gosh, what I wouldn’t give to take a peek inside all those homes!!! So beautiful!! I’m always taking pictures of houses, it is an addiction!

  7. FrouFrouBritches says:

    I hate to admit this, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one of those before. They’re gorgeous! Can’t wait to see yours. It’s gonna be so pretty!

  8. Eye candy, indeed! What a beautiful neighborhood. Wish I could come look at houses with you!

    I love Chippendale doors, and I think one will be perfect for your house! We used to have some Chippendale box planters, and I loved them. One of my neighbors has Chippendale railings on her porch, and I think they’re just perfect.

    Way to go, Paula!

  9. Trish @TheOldPostRoad says:

    Yes! Put one up! Those are beautiful homes! Thanks for sharing – I did not know that door was called a “chippendale”.

  11. Blondie's Journal says:

    The homes in your area are absolutely beautiful!! I love the one with te trimmed ivy all around the windows and door. How cool!!

    I love that Chippendale style and it’s going to look great on your house. Show us when it’s done!

    Oh, wow! I can see why you might dream of some of those homes. They are DREAMY!!! 🙂

  14. Jennifer@SweetSimplicity says:

    Lovely neighborhood!

  15. Well I sure have neighborhood envy Paula. Those are beautiful homes and I can’t wait to see your beauty sporting her new door. I must admit I’m not familar with screen door styles but this one is going to look fabulous on your home. Sorta like a beautiful necklace for her dress.

  16. KM @ This Plate is Full says:

    that is so funny that they all have the same same door.
    Your neighborhood looks like a lovely place to be.

  17. Jennifer Juniper says:

    I have never seen that door! I like it though 😉

    I’m picturing your neighbors wondering who the stalker is that is photographing their houses!

  18. Amanda @ Serenity Now says:

    I still have door envy. 😉 Thanks for joining the party, Paula. 🙂

  19. Michaela Noelle says:

    This post is great…it reminds me of a project I did in my interior design class last quarter where we had 10 different styles of houses (georgian, craftsmen, modern etc.) and had to drive around and take pictures of each style. All the houses around you are so charming and beautiful.
    Those doors sure are popular around your area! Can’t wait to see your new door!
