The Contemporary
Carolina Cottage

It’s time to get cozy—see how HGTV’s “Love It or List It” host
Hilary Farr collaborated with our experts to transform
her cottage’s entryway into a modern marvel.

Timeless Meets Modern

To fit her vision of creating a contemporary cottage, Farr chose a unique modern door combination featuring Flemish glass, a Burnt Copper finish, and a bold, round silhouette that complemented the home’s brick exterior. She says, “I wanted it to be a surprise when you walk in the front door that it’s contemporary on the inside. The door is the perfect go-between. It makes its own statement, it’s not traditional, it’s not hard edge contemporary, it’s perfect in literally any setting.”

A Love for Local

Pairing well with the door’s overall sleek style, Farr chose contemporary Longleaf pull handles and hardware — her support of local businesses throughout the entire design process was incredible. We love how sharp the handles look, offsetting the door’s otherwise soft, round edges.

A Bright, Welcoming Foyer

In an effort to invite more light inside while still maintaining a degree of privacy, the textured Flemish glass strikes a perfect balance — any time of day. This custom double door entryway also features eight glass panels for maximum light. “With two stories, I wanted light and a statement door…the material gave me something light and not heavy,” adds Farr.
