I've not heard the phrase, "slighty Art Deco" before, but what the heck, I'll take your word for it! It is a cool doorway!

If this is Wednesday, it must be Doorway!

Retour au bleu works for «Louis», too!

I think it's interesting that the doorway to the right has a keystone above it and the left one doesn't. The right one also projects outward from the building. (Sorry, I observe the most bizarre things sometimes). I wonder if the left one was originally a window.

Regardless, the doors are both exquisite. The balcony's are really cool.

Is Le Royal a cafe? If I were sipping a coffee in front I'd expect something very impressive to come parading out of the blue door.

It is an impressive double bleu doorway, no doubt about it.

Lynette said...

Oh, wow. What a fabulous photo you've taken of these splendid doors. And I really like those chairs, too.

Your city has such great details! I love the brown and the blue next door to each other.

Per Stromsjo said...

How 'bout that? Dining outside one of the doorways to keep an eye on the other one!

Paulie said...

Beautiful duo each of them!

Olivier said...

j'espere que ce retour au bleu, annonce le retour du beau temps ;)

Les portes d'entree etaient vraiment hautes. Jolie photo et un coin sympa pour prendre un cafe.

Cergie said...

Elle parait bien tristounette cette terrasse avec les jolies chaises... vertes. Mais il y a un petit coin de ciel bleu planqué au dessus de la porte bleue. Comme le petit oiseau, il va bientôt sortir et alors tout sera changé !

Love the blue. And the door too. MB

Ce qui m'intrigue toujours dans les portes versaillaises, c'est la petite fenêtre au-dessus!
le Royal aurait pu mettre des chaises bleues...

Was für traumhafte Portale und wie gerne würde ich jetzt in diesem zauberhaften Cafe sitzen, im Sonnenschein ;)) und etwas Köstliches genießen - hier regnet es unentwegt und es ist sehr, sehr kalt :((!

Allerliebste Grüße, aus Bayern, herzlichst Jade

It takes a good eye to see the deco. The outside more than the inside, I think. Versailles has many beautiful doors, that's for sure.

Loree said...

Very beautiful door. Versailles seems to have a lot of them.

A wonderful image. The two doorways are like a sister and a brother!

Blue must be a popular color for doors there.

Renee said...

Loving the doors!!!

J'aime bien tous qui est art nouveau. Il n'en manque pas a Paris !

Thérèse said...

Amusante cette photo, on se met aussitôt à observer une porte, puis l'autre et de recommencer...

Catherine said...

Pif Paf, Pouf, ce se ra toi que j'choi si rai.....Et bien, on se retrouve à la terrasse, Ciel !

Fadenstille said...

Ich staune immer wieder, wie viel schöner Türen und Pforten man hier allerorts finden kann, nie gleichen sie sich ...
Liefs Anett

EG Wow said...

The doors are so similar yet different in fascinating ways: colour, width.... This is so cool!

I like the house number above the doors and the reflection in the transome window. Those look like stock millwork elements that can be affixed. Interesting how the little grill proportions change from above the doors to those above the terrace. . .probably the terrace one was replaced at some point and not matched well. Love all your doorways into interesting spaces!
Thanks for the concern. . .I had such a full week and weekend that I got behind and had to play major catch up.
I love the color of those chairs.

I like the idea of slightly something... (I'm afraid I use it often either!)

Johnny Nutcase said...

Gunn said...

To me this is unique and very pretty!
