There’s always something about a red door, especially when accentuated by a red window frame.  And when both are in a stone building, they’re hard to beat.

Now add a way to stay ahead of your neighbors.  Trés unique!

Shabby chic is something found everywhere in France, often in the country but sometimes in the city as well. It looks good in those places. It wouldn’t look so good on most of our houses.  The brickwork is in place for any upgrade, though, if you’d rather go for something a bit more functional.

Sometimes there’s just a bit too much “stuff” around an otherwise delicious door.  But don’t feel too bad.  The door to the actual patisserie, although nothing special, opened to reveal sweet offerings we could easily a-door.

Our Canadian ambasa-door is Norm, up in chilly Montreal.  Drop by each Thursday his blog every Thursday to discover and enjoy doors from far-flung parts of the world.

    I love red doors but they’re usually on churches so your find is unusual but nonetheless charming.

  2. My favourite combination, Janet. Red doors and stone buildings. The head is a bit unusual, though.

  3. Red for good luck

    Love the head. The red too of course.

    “Shabby chic” – that sounds like a fashion trend I could support. I love the red door!

  6. I totally agree with you about red doors framed in stone with matching windows. This one is lovely.

  7. Leya says:

    Love that red door – with all the extras!

    Mmmm did someone say chocolate and pastries?
    That red door is simple-chic. Very nice 🙂

    Red is always fabulous on a door. Lovely.


  10. This red door gets extra points because it also has a red sashed window and a head above it. Not many doors, red or otherwise, can boast those accompaniments. 🙂

  11. Great finds, a red door and a chocolate one too!

    Alas, my door and shutters are green and peeling. Perhaps a bit of paint…
