Wednesday Doorway: la porte du détail de la semaine dernière

Last week I showed you a detail (it was here). This is the whole door. Some of you were wondering if it was a mansion or a 'rich' house. Not at all. Just your ordinary house.
----------------------------
La semaine dernière, c'était ici. Et non, ce n'est pas une maison grandiose, juste une petite maison normale !

An ordinary house with one hell of a door!

Hey, do not worry about responding...take care of business! But do keep in touch.

Terrific door.

Well, you can't get a door like that at Bricorama (not that I really know much about Bricorama, I cheated and googled for "Home Depot France").

Americans would assume that anything this old and ornate was a "rich" house. Sure beats a double-wide mobile home here.

Well only in France would this be considered an ordinary door (since everything seems to be so beautiful). Our ordinary doors are quite...different...ugly.

Jacob stole the words right out of my mouth.

comme quoi c'est pas la taille de la porte qui compte ;) belle petite entrée et il y a quoi derrière la porte ?

LD said...

hard to believe that's an "ordinary" house with such an extraordinary door!

Well it does look more ordinary at this distance. MB

Oui c'est logique que cette porte ne pouvait être en bois, où avais je la tête ? Mais le détail avait été très bien pris exploitant l'éclairage pour bien faire ressortir les reliefs, je profite de l'occasion pour te le dire...

Very beautiful - and makes me want to knock and go in! x

Les gens qui vivent là ne doivent même plus faire attention à la beauté qu'ils croisent tous les soirs en rentrant..

I remember this, I liked it very much. A quite alaborate front door for an ordinary house.

Birdman said...

In simplicity, there is often found 'richness'.

Kaori said...

Nothing ordinary about that door! The French have such great taste ;-D

This kind of ordinary ordinary folks can live with! [I'm super occupied these days too... hope it's a fun busy for you!]

It may be just an ordinary house, but it's got a fantastic door!

Loree said...

What a magnificent door for an ordinary house.

Jack said...

Thanks for posting this so we can see the whole picture. I think it is wonderful that a relatively ordinary home has such fascinating details.

Two days late, but «Louis» HAD to see what fabulous doorway you've found this week!
