Who doesn’t need a Paris “fix?” Since I can’t be everyplace at once, I asked a just-returning chic friend to create a French doors pictorial-get-away for those of us in need of a little Gaul-glimpse. Thank you, Catherine…
Knock – knock
Oh, the color! The doorknocker design! The patina! The shadowing!
While I’m usually not a fan of snakes…I must proclaim this doorknocker sssssimply ssssspectacular.
I adore arriving (and departing) under the watchful eye of a benevolent historic presence, something that has watched over many before me.
Behind these grand doors – nothing short of an actual red carpet.
What is more stately and sigh-producing than this doorway? Perhaps the curved street and the curved neighbor?
A papa door next to a baby door. Love that “French blue.”
Sneaking a peek inside this doorway, what do I see but…an enormous horse lamp, of course.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see a see a drawbridge behind these arched doors.
In closing…just too dramatic not to include (though it’s from Langeais Castle in the Loire Valley…a hint of future stories.)
