September: Screened-In Pantry

Summer's long days may be waning, but we've got a way to make the season's outdoorsy vibe linger year-round: Use a wood screen door to shield an area that needs to be somewhat—but not totally—hidden from view. Here, an aqua door gives this kitchen the casual air of a porch while concealing the pantry. (You could do the same for a linen closet or laundry room.) With measurements in hand, pick up an old screen door at a tag sale, jazz it up with a bright coat of paint, and install it in the doorjamb for an accent that conjures warmth as the temperature dips.
