~Doors of the World~
Doors fascinate many people. I am one of those people.
Do you ever strain to see the doors of buildings when traveling as a passenger in a car to some new place?
I especially love doors of character and you will find that most of these amazing images are of doors from countries far away where buildings are ancient or very old. Some will intrigue me, some I fall in love with and some will tease me, cause me to yearn for a tour of what lies beyond. What do they speak to you?
A weathered gray wooden door with detailed wrought iron accents. Looks a bit rustic in the Limestone building.
This door is so interesting with the paper box/mail slot on it. The bright orange is eye catching for sure in this very old stone home. Notice the stain coming off the bottoms where the door has been kicked open repeatedly.
These red painted doors appear as though they were added at a later date than the building as the opening is arched and the doors are squared. They also don’t appear to match the building. Interesting though.
Wow, the vividness of the yellow paint combined with the green painted wrought iron window grilles make this entrance stand out from the limestone facade.
Love the boldness that these paneled double doors were painted for a brick home front entrance, Really intrigues me and makes me want to see inside although there is no door knob. Wonder why that is…
Another turquoise double door entrance however, notice how the doors themselves have been carved to fit into the carved stone lintel.
Amazing and mystical is how I would describe these doors. The old gnarly tree trunks add an eery touch to the medieval feel.
These cream doors draw the eye and the ivy creeping over the exterior walls have been trimmed and shaped to follow the slight arch at the top of the door.
These are interior doors but I love gray and detailed paneled doors. They’re a little overly ornate for the general residence but stunning none the less!
These glossy black double front doors make a striking contrast with the white trim, brass kick plates and Fleur de Lis door knockers.
These interior doors make this entrance pop. Painted gloss black is the way to go and the handrail and newel post have been painted as well. I have done this very look in homes.
A modern Art Nouveau Double Door with black trim is striking with the light from the interior shining through.
I love the detail on this cared door frame and lintel. The brass knobs on the front also make a statement.
These purple and gold antique doors appear to be constructed from brass or some type of metal.
Another striking example of ornate front doors. the gold overlay is very elegant with the deep peacock blue beneath.
Couldn’t resist adding this beautiful antique keyhole hardware and key. I think hardware that is unique really make a wonderful personal statement for your home. Calls for another post dedicated to hardware for the door. Upcoming.
Thank you for stopping by Chatti Patti Talks Design. I’ve enjoyed sharing some beautiful images of both exterior and interior doors. Most of these photos have been sourced from Pinterest. You can see more here.
