There's a fine line between shabby and chic... A touch of careful restoration certainly looks like an attractive option in this case.

un petit coup de pinceaux ne lui serait pas de trop ;)

What do you suppose it looks like inside?

Jacob said...

If shabbychic were a word it would be an oxymoron. Shabby is right, chic I'm not so sure. Perhaps elegant at one time...

I like watching old door - interesting shot!

Tracy said...

Whatever it is I like it!

Oh this doorway speaks to my "handy man special" soul. I love this doorway. It just needs some TLC.

But you can still see the beauty, so chic in a way!

This looks like a shabby neighbourhood ready for transformation into chic. It has great "bones" so give it a few years and I bet it will be a trendy area.

We have the technology and 10 fix-it-up channels in High Definition.

Definitely shabby. Could be chic. I love the shot (and the door)!! The details in the corbels are great and so are the windows.

This is a great door and facade.

SRQ said...

Wonderful entrance....definitely shabby chic. Great find and capture.

La splendeur est passée, mais le charme est resté..Un coup de peinture gacherait même peut-être le charme en question!

On aurait vraiment envie de former une petite équipe et de venir gratter avant de repeindre! Cela fait tristounet.

décoloration urinaire ?
non je n'ose le croire

VP said...

Quite shabby but some kind of elegance is still around...

Dave said...

shabby but still elegant.

B SQUARED said...

So much detail, really worthy of renovation.

It makes one wonder what is going on here. Beautiful but shabby is right. MB

Kaori said...

I like the heart shapes in the round window on the left! Shabby...true, but pretty as well ;-D

Halcyon said...

I sort of like it. It adds some charm, somehow.

diamond in the rough. It has a lot of potential, could be a nice bistro or some bookstore.

Greetings from Cebu Daily Photo!

I always "hear" : "Location- location" when I see photos of places that also could have been in a film.
Old and elegant!:)
