The door was the beginning: it was first to turn black.

In its previous life my space was a serviced apartment—and the door made this abundantly clear.  It had a no-smoking sticker, an automatic door closer and (no doubt) hundreds of fingerprints from travelling strangers.

Having removed the tiles and polished the concrete floor (more on that later), I was left with a decent gap under the door.  I found a brass door seal that matched the brass switches.  It took a bit of hacksawing and screwing but it works just fine.  The black is the same excellent purple black as the black wall.  And there are no fingerprints to be seen.
