French Doors

French style, in my opinion, can be summed up by these Parisian doors. They are so classical, full of character, unique and ornate. My traveling partner this summer in Paris decided to document all these beautiful doors and these are some of my favorites. I think they really tell a lot about the city. Even if you have never been to Paris, you probably get a better glimpse into the true city than if you were looking at an image of the Eiffel tower.The french, while very classical and subtle are also not afraid of being modern. This door is a great example of their seemingly effortless ways of combining modern colors with classical design.

This door is one of my favorites. It reminds me of an art nouveau piece combined with a Jackson Pollock painting.

The detail is something you wont find anywhere else. The french really understand the importance of every single small component rather than just looking at the bigger picture.

These doors were such a great example of the power of light and color. The doors themselves were clear glass but the vibrant colors of the interior shined through and changed depending on your point of view.
