Thursday Doors – November 19, 2015

When I first saw this door I thought it was very retro looking.  I love the patterns in the panes of glass which make up the sail boat.

Thursday Doors - 19th November

Yes, it has probably seen better days and is in need of a good lick of paint, but if I were living here then I’d certainly want to keep this as my front door.

Posted as part of ‘Thursday Doors’, over at Norm 2.0 (my blog recommendation of the month).

Head on over, check out the challenge, view all the other photos of doors and join in the fun.

  1. I love anything nautical themed, especially glass in windows or doors like yours. And I even like the way the paint is a bit worn. Love the colour. Great door for the challenge Hugh 🙂 xx

  2. Though it looks a bit worn, I think it’s still a classy door. It must be the colour. Not every day do you see such a regal-coloured door. And a tall door too. As Jan said, there doesn’t seem to be a knob. I wouldn’t want to be outside and forgot to take my keys with me – it seems the kind of door that if it shuts behind you, it might look you out if you don’t have the keys 🙂

    1. Front doors can often be boring to look at, Mabel, but this one certainly catches the eye. As for the door knob, we seem to have lots of doors without them here in the UK. People tend to use the the small handle around the keyhole or even the letterbox to close the door. I’d love a front door like this one although I would see to it that it was given some TLC. It deserves some.

  3. Great choice for your Thursday door, Hugh. I love the design and the color. But it’s bothering me that i don’t see a doorknob… Ah but that’s just more for the story it had already started in my head! Hugs.

    1. Thanks Teagan. Yes, somebody else mentioned the lack of doorknob. Many doors here in the UK seem not to have one. People tend to use the lock (with key) to open and close the door when entering and exiting the building. Good to hear that the door may have inspired an idea for the story.

      Friday hugs to you.

    1. Hi David, you are so right about this being an art-deco door from the 1930s. Where I got retro from I don’t know. When I saw the door it reminded me of a door from my childhood days in the 1960s. Maybe that door was then 30 years old?

    1. I agree Sally. I took the photo in Dartmouth, Devon, so very near the sea. The door attracted me but I did wonder what the condition of the building behind the door was like. It reminded me of a door from the 1960s. I’m not sure why but it did stir some childhood memories.
