New Obsession

My newest obsession (like I need another one)? Steel doors. Specifically French doors.
Why, might you ask, am I newly obsessed with steel doors? Well, because we need new French doors (ours are not functioning properly and have damage from leaks), and I, of course, pick what I'm sure are the most expensive and unattainable kind out there. But it's fun to dream, isn't it? Just look how pretty . . . 
Same doors, just from the outside.

Ah, so lovely.
So, what do you think? Anyone have any leads on these types of doors? Our contractor/Mr. Fix-it is checking into it with some of his people. Another option would be just to get some regular French doors and paint them black for the same look. I'm sure steel doors would have to be a custom-ordered thing that would probably cost about a bajillion dollars, but they're oh so pretty. Sigh.

And totally off the subject (sorry this is how my brain works), but last night while watching the last episode of Million Dollar Decorators it finally occurred to me who Jeffrey Alan Marks reminds me of . . .
Will Ferrell when he's playing an enthusiastic idiot, like the clueless but lovable Buddy in Elf . . .
The only difference is poor Jeffrey's not playing a part.

Don't you dare make fun of buddy!! bahahha

I swear we have the same mind....bahaha
No seriously we are buying french doors as well and I'm painting them black!

But what if there's a zombie Apocalypse, french doors are very vulnerable. It's all glass!!

Poor Jeffrey...hahaha! You nailed that one!

I love, no, LOVE, steel doors and windows and have long coveted every image that I come across. I wanted some when we were finishing our basement a few years ago. Alas, out of reach. I hope you find an uber cheap source.

I also love steel doors, so pretty, and they add so much to a room. Many of my favorite rooms feature steel doors or windows!

wow those doors are amazing! I love how sleek they are and how slim the frames are. They're like a 2011 version of Crittall windows. Great pictures! They look very LA and now I want to go on holiday somewhere warm.

Those steel doors are freakin' fabulous! I would love some of those bad boys. If they are too hard to get, I've also dreamt of painting french doors black too. Love that look!
