I started this post a few weeks ago, but it just never got any real traction. Today I’m dusting it off and trying again.
I chose these photos for Thursday Doors because of the much needed splash of colour they were providing.
I grew up in a yellow wood house – later covered with aluminum siding – and I think that’s why I seem to have a natural attraction to yellow houses. Although these doors are rather ordinary by themselves, the total package is attractive to my eye.
The blue roof on the above house is so striking with the yellow. Carrying forward the theme of blue trim takes me to a heritage building from 1891.
I like the rounded features that complement this building … from the gentle arch on top of the door and windows, to the small overhang over the front step, and the wrap of the two hand railings down the stairs.
For a last splash of colour, this building always makes me smile. Its boring utilitarian door is more than made up for by its baby turret.
