If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.
~Milton Berle
It’s Thursday, which means time to highlight another door for Norm’s Thursday Doors.  So many doors, so little time.  The details of this French bedroom door intrigued me and, I hope, you as well. Of course, you have a standing invitation to pop over to see other doors on other blogs once I’m up and link to Norm’s post for today.
Welcome to the doors of 2016.

    I was intrigued by these French doors – and the quotes are oh so good too…..

    I love the look of “burnished” wood. Yes, to incredible French doors! 🙂 Hugs, Robin

  3. Dan Antion says:

    I like the close up Janet. You can see the details of the craftsmanship that went into making this beauty.

    • It’s more difficult to do if you’re taking photos of someone’s outside doors, Dan, unless you have a good lens and can get close without walking up to their house! This was easy, as I was in the house every day.


  4. “Preconceived notions are the locks on the door to wisdom.”

    My favorite has been: There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance—that principle is contempt prior to investigation. —Herbert Spencer

    Mary Browne’s is a lot more succinct. 😉

    Great shot Janet – I love it!

  6. dimlamp says:

    Good choice, and great quotes!

  7. Kerry S. says:

    The Mary Browne quote is perfect for the picture: Big heavy doors with presumably big heavy locks – yet one door is ajar, open to new ideas. Actually both quotes are perfect for the picture. And I love those bird handles!

  8. jan says:

    Love the details – wow! I’m a sucker for antique hardware!

  9. Lovely – I just love the richness and textures of that wood, compared to the metal.

    I’m not usually one who pays much attention to doors, but these are gorgeous! Love your composition in this shot.

    You had me at “french doors” 🙂 … but the detail is exquisite. I particularly like the door pulls. At first I thought they had little lion heads on them, but now I think it’s “just” a decorative swirl … that kind of detail just isn’t done anymore, is it?

  12. klara says:

    nice close up that reveals lot of details.

  13. Great door quotes, Janet! And a great door. Those door knockers in particular are just fabulous.

  14. Intriguing and mysterious, would love to know what’s behind those door! Great find.

    • Sylvia, thanks for stopping by. There was a lovely little French bedroom behind those doors, doors I opened and closed more than once a day while I was there. Hope to be back there again this year!

    These look like substantial door. Love the carved detail and the patina.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
