Doors and Windows

American Horror Story: Window

If you know me, you know that I am always checking out people's windows.  I can't pass a window without objectifying it.  And the window in the new American Horror Story: Roanoke (Season 6) farmhouse is particularly eye-catching .  

After watching the first episode, I was convinced that the window was flipped (in a spooky way) when looking at if from the interior:

But then in episode two I was able to grab his shot, so the upside down one must be somewhere else in the house.  Haven't gotten my bearings in this set yet.

Art Nouveau doors

I just finished watching the film, Suspiria, and despite the sets being infamously eye-catching, what stuck out for my were the art nouveau inspired doors.  

Obviously custom art nouveau doors are stupid-gorgeous (see Exhibit A), but what I liked about the doors in Suspiria was that they felt attainable.  They were simple enough, that they seem like doors I could one day own.  I am sure they won't be cheap, but they seem "manufactured".

Therefor, I am going to do a quick Google to see if I can, in fact, purchase this style of doors with a few clicks..........

......................so....................I'm seeing lots of hardware options........................

There is this place, AAW Doors Inc, that has some options, but I don't love them.  They seem to be trying too hard:

US Doors and More seems to have all the same stock, but a few more options.....although I didn't see any that had the elegant simplicity of Suspiria.  

Conclusion:  Failure

I am sure these doors are out there, but they were not a few clicks away.  There weren't even a good number of clicks away.  

If you have a good lead, let me know.

Chasing Curtain Panels

These curtains are fantastic.  I love the large bold print, in dusty colors.  I love how the print changes, so each fold seems to be made of a different piece of fabric, while still being cohesive.  These would look elegant in a formal parlor or fresh in a child's nursery.  Good design looks good anywhere.
