I have a somewhat obsession with doors. Charming doors, to be more specific. My home back in Colorado has a bright red door–my favorite color for a door–and I’ve always loved coming across brightly colored, intricately carved, or metal detailed doors.
When I went to France a few years ago, I literally took a photo of every charm Parisian door I saw. I’m almost 100% sure I pissed off the rest of the group because I would stop every few feet to snap a photo.
A door can give the first impression. It can be inviting, it can make people want to turn away. Sometimes the doorway is just an allusion! A façade! Have you even noticed a doorway that no one ever opens? It’s probably a fake door just to cover up the emptiness behind it, or to disguise something that would otherwise be an eyesore.
I love all things charming, inviting and brightly colored.
