glossy black doors

There is nothing more chic, elegant or welcoming, in my opinion, than a pair of gorgeous, glossy black doors, but how about on the inside of a house?  Ever since I saw this foyer in the Michigan home of designer Stephen Knollenberg, I’ve been completely smitten with the idea:

We have French doors in our living room that open inward to a screened-in porch out back.  In the spring and fall, I love to have them both wide open and enjoy the fresh air.  As soon as the temperatures get a little higher here, I’m painting the outside of the doors black, so that when they are open, we’ll be able to enjoy their glossy gorgeousness.  Here are a few other photos I’ve collected as inspiration:
