Door Header Ideas
Most homes today do nothing with the wall directly above the door. One of the things I love about classical interiors is the attention they give to the doors and windows. And it is not just the door, but the wall space above the door. So, I have been collecting some great pictures that will inspire you. First though a few ‘before’ pictures that were taken from a featured interior in a blog today.
Nice space but that door could really be enhanced with some architectural details.
How about something like this?
Another great before picture of a door wall that could use some attention.
This is our inspiration image. Paint a decorative design over the door that includes the wall to the right where the clock is. The design could have borders so that the focal point clock is framed by the wall behind it.
Another great opportunity to do something unique for this door on an asymmetrical wall.
Something like the frame on this mirror would look great. You could even eliminate the central ornament. This pediment look really calls attention to the height and would have a big impact on this door.
Now for the eye candy headers. All fabulous.
Idea for adding a painting over the door. Take a painting off of its stretchers and paper it to the wall and frame it with ornament.
Now if you have a trompe l’oeil artist larger than life figures were often placed over doors.
