So...I Have This Thing About Doors

SO…I HAVE THIS THING ABOUT DOORS
{Via}
So… I have this thing about doors… This may sound a bit odd but ever since I was little I have always looked for the “face” of a house. Believe it or not you can actually spot a face if you look hard enough; if you think about it, it only makes sense a house would have a face, because those who inhabit a house give it life and soul. I have always thought the windows to be eyes and the door to be the smile. Some houses look happy, friendly, welcoming, and other houses look sad and unfriendly.

Whenever I go on vacation somewhere I always make a point to walk around and admire the local architecture. The architecture usually seems to varies from place to place. There is an artistry/craftsmanship that goes into designing a door. I have to admit I’m not sure I would ever want a pink door, but I love it when you stumble upon a row of houses and they all have different color pastel doors and every now and then a pink one will make an appearance. Or when in an urban neighborhood that has been around for years and years and you stumble across an old, stunning door that has been around forever and could not possibly be recreated in today’s world.

The doors…the door plays the key factor in whether a house looks happy or sad, welcoming or unfriendly. The door is like the first page of a book; it is a first impression. Needless to say it is important to pick out a door that represents you and your family, goes with the structure of the house, and delivers the right message to visitors when they first arrive.

  5. I LOVE colored doors! One of the first things I did when I moved into my house was paint the front door teal green.

  7. I enjoyed this post. There is so much beauty in something as simple as a door. A door is very common, but the architecture put into it is so extensive!

  9. ahhh I am so relieved that someone else shares my door obsession. The bolder the better, in my opinion. :) A glass knob is always an added bonus, too.
