Fabulous Front Doors :: Screen Doors

Not always necessary,
depending on the climate,
but a screened door can be a chance 
to add a little enchantment
to a front entrance.
This is a very ornate version, 
from a 1930s house in Toorak,
where the cast iron scrolls remind me of butterfly wings. 
Simpler, but just as beautiful,
this sultry blue number at a holiday property
frames the bottom half for support
but leaves the top half clear for visibility.
And, I rather love to imagine,
if I close my eyes a little,
I can just hear that fabulous "s q u e a k" sound 
of this screen door opening.
It's the sound of sunny days!

  2. Hello Virginia:
    Entrance doors are, of course, so very important for they almost always determine that vital first impression.

    1. Absolutely agree - as you can probably tell from my regular posts about them! They are one of the elements of a building that I love working on the most.

  3. Screen doors remind me of Summer! I like the second one best. Simple and straightforward. N.G.
