On my first trip to Paris many years ago..I was astounded by the abandon with which colour was splashed everywhere in the houses... and for the first time saw how front doors could be wildly colored.. Blue is one of my favourite color choices for the front door
And so is red. I have actually done this at one of the early apartments I lived in. Always makes for a cheerful entrance... trick is choosing the right shade of red taking into consideration what kind of light the area gets.. The Chinese believe it brings good luck
This is the kind of thing one would see at a mosque.. very rarely in anyone's home..unless its an old traditional home
I just love how different colour elements have been worked together to create a picture perfect entrance
and ethnic doors have always held a special place in my heart.. if you are lucky enough to have an original antique....hold on to it... or let me know if you want to sell it... if you aren't... there are carpenters out there who could replicate one for you...
or try combining ethnic with color
