The Doors of Paris

I was all ready to post another edition of our Paris trip recap today when I realized that all of the photos I’d edited somehow got uploaded to flickr UNedited!  Apparently it happened with our first two recap posts as well, so as I dig back through our photos to fix our previous posts, I decided to share a fun little project I did while we were there instead.

Within minutes of stepping out of our hotel on our first day in Paris, we started noticing colorful doors everywhere we looked.  Luckily I thought to snap quick photos of the fun entryways we passed – and lo and behold, a photo collection was born.

I bet you’ll have a favorite door in the bunch, so let’s make a game of it!  Leave a comment letting us know which door you like best (by using the photo title) and I’ll tally up the votes on Friday to declare the winning Door of Paris!  If you don’t particularly like any of them, leave a link to your favorite door on the interwebs!

Bright Blue Door Sacre Coeur Door
Dark Green Door Apple Green Door
Pink Door Rich Wood Door
Red Door Wood and Gold Door
Dusty Blue Door Teal Green Door Cobalt Blue Door Intricate Wood Door

So which is your favorite?  It seems like blue and green were the most popular paint colors we came across.  I tried my hardest to find a yellow or orange door to add to the mix, but they were nowhere to be found!

Can’t wait to see which one you choose!  I’ll try to pick my favorite too and let you know on Friday.

P.S. If you’re online later tonight and want to stop by Apartment Therapy around, 7pm EST or so, you might see something you recognize from our humble abode!  Eek! 😀

    Pink door for sure! I love the arched shape and the iron details. And who wouldn’t love a pink door!

  4. I have to go with the pink door – it’s just so unusual looking, I love it!!

    I love that last door (the wooden one)! It looks like a combination between the face of Cogsworth in the Beauty and the Beast cartoon and the doors out of Alice in Wonderland. Kind of looks like it’s pouting.

    Man, that is a tough decision! They are all awesome! I feel like some of them are watching me, though… especially the “wood and gold” one and the “intricate” one. 🙂 I think my favorite is the pink door. The style of it appeals to me. I LOVE the colors of the blue/green ones, though. Fun photo collection!

    LOVE these doors! Europe has so much charm. I am really digging the coral #58 doors. Beautiful!

    Pink door – but you already knew that. Congrats on Apartment Therapy too!!!!

    I really like the simple green curved arch door. so fresh looking! I may have gotten just enough inspiration to paint my ugly blue door a fresh new color!

    Meredith –

    Just read your Apartment Therapy feature! Congrats! That kitchen is definitely something to be proud of. 🙂

    As for these doors – I’m kinda drawn to that light green one. Very into that shade of green right now.

    Without a doubt the last door. You can’t find doors like that anywhere else.
    I’ve been wanting to go back to Paris for awhile now. I think I know what season to visit (we went in February previously).

    That coral door was gorgeous buuuut then I saw the very last art deco one. It’s the best by far!

  14. Margie says:

    My favorite door is the intricate wood one. Magnifique!
    And your DIY kitchen is great. And your Paris pics were lovely too!
    God bless you 2. :^).

    Intricate Wood Door! Love it! 🙂

  16. I love them all. But my favorite, the bright green, second row on the right. Love. Are you going to display these? That would be so darn cool.

  17. So pretty ordered in colour.
