Doors. They’re everywhere. They’re functioning, useful and there’s definitely more doors than people in every single place you visit. That doesn’t mean that they have to be drab and utilitarian though!
I love nothing more than a bright colour pop door, a rustic wooden door with the paint peeling and the wood crumbling slightly and don’t even get me started on big heavy door knockers. Love them!
I’ve discovered some truly beautiful doors around the world on my travels so lets take a look at some of my favourites…
I found this bright beauty while wandering around Dublin. Dublin has a tonne of colourful Georgian doors all over the city but this was one of my favourites.
This ornate door and surrounding archway were found whilst walking through the streets of Pesaro, an adorable seaside town in the Marche region of Italy.
Who doesn’t love a good black and white doorway? I love the crumbling bricks and heavy door knockers on this one that I found in Rimini, another seaside resort in Italy.
This one is definitely my favourite door in the world. I found it in the City Palace of Jaipur, India’s so called pink city (although it looks more terracotta to me!). I love the painting detail on the top of the door that looks almost like a peacocks tail and I just adore how colourful it is.
Obviously I had to get a picture taken with my favourite door!
I love Venice and it’s beautiful wooden doors. All the better if they’re slightly worn, a little crumbling but still beautiful; a bit like the city itself.
During a trip to Malta I visited the fascinating walled city of Mdina which was a door lovers paradise. This one was one of my favourites but I did love the striking lion head door knocker on another…
