What a lovely entry! Yes to those tall ceilings, the Dutch door, the grand staircase, and lots and lots of windows and light.

Doesn't this room feel so warm and welcoming? I love the windows on the top half of this Dutch door. Such beautiful design! 

Now here's an entryway worth looking at. Beautiful floors, built-in under-stair storage, a lovely wooden bench, paneled wooden walls, and a gorgeous Dutch door. Perfect! 

What do you think? Would you do a dutch door in your home or does the idea of cutting a perfectly good door in half seem a little silly?
