Downton's Decorated Doors

While recently watching my obsession, Downton Abbey, I noticed that the doors between the downstairs and upstairs domain are quite interesting and beautiful:
Green Baize with the most unexpected nail head trim. Did a little research and learned that the doors were made to be obvious and noticeably different so that a servant did not accidentally enter a room through a non- service door. These great country houses had literally thousands of doors, can you even imagine? I have 4.

Anyway, it made me remember this door I saw in Martha Stewart Living some time ago
Everything old is new again, right?
