“You never get a second chance at a first impression.”
With home decor, when it comes to doors, nothing could be further from the truth. From the second we walk up to a doorway, we get an impression of what the house will be like inside. And if your goal is to have a grand home, then why not purposely have a grand front door?
I remember distinctly on our trip to Paris two years ago what an impression all those doors made on me. If only I had thought to take pictures of all of them when I was there. I did snap a few….
This was in front of the apartment we rented. (… please ignore the cheesy vacation pose, lol!)
Nothing says welcome like a cheery pop of color, and nobody uses color better than the French! So, take in these wonderful detailed doors that beckon everyone who passes by, to come inside.

Each door tells a story doesn’t it? Here in the states, if our front doors looked that worn and aged we’d rush to paint them – but in France, the distressed finish adds to charm, intrigue and uniqueness.
This fall, once the temperatures drop, consider giving your front entry a little bit of an upgrade. And why not do as the French? Go full out with color! It’s something I might consider myself!
