Barn Doors Worthy of the Big City

We've loved living in the French countryside for the last five months. The home we're renting is called La Cressonnière, and it's a beautiful farmhouse filled with details that I'm going to be sad to leave when our journey ends.

We haven't yet found a home for when we move back to the States, but I'm already thinking of ways we can bring a little of La Cressonnière with us. One idea I love is using sliding barn doors inside. Not only is it a great space saver, it adds visual interest and can be done to look modern or rustic.

See some examples of this look below.

A very modern sliding door with a glass panel makes this office space flow smoothly.

This yellow stunner was actually a DIY project. You can find the instructions on House Tweaking.

This set of doors makes such an impact as an entrance to the kitchen.

The most rustic one of the bunch, this looks like it came straight from an abandoned barn.

So what do you think of this look? Is it something you would try out in your space?
