More Québec City Doors – Colour Theme Beige

I haven’t been able to get out on any new ‘DoorScursions’ lately (thanks Joey!) so I’ve been dipping into my archives the past few weeks.

While looking through my unused door pics in preparation for this post I noticed that I still had a fair number of interesting ones from our trip to Québec City last winter.

While we were there we spent a night at the Ice Hotel which you can read about here and I got some great shots of the Ice Climbers at Montmorency Falls that you can view here.

As I scrolled through my unused Old Québec doors I noticed an unusual number of my remaining shots were of beige doors. Hmm, I guess without realizing it I was favoring the brighter more vibrant reds, blues, and greens.

So this week I’ve decided to share some of my poor, neglected, beige beauties with you – let me know which one(s) you like best:

Okay, I know this door is black, but the dominant colour in the pic is beige ;-)

Okay, I know this door is black, but the main colour in the pic is beige 😉







As always, thanks for looking 🙂

  3. Hi Norm, new to blogging and tried to post a blog linked to my Flickr site. I was doing some reorg on Flickr and accidently deleted my photo so my link is no longer good for my post under Gordon aka pukashorts. Next time I post it will by the new name under my wordpress site. Sorry for the inconvenience. Gordon

  7. Cool selection Norm! Can’t help myself, I just love the black one but also rather like the slightly neglected one at the end with 4183 scribbled on the pillar. Can’t imagine being N°4183, we’re the only house for a kilometre around but thanks to the post office’s new system we now have to put a N°1 on our address, crazy!

    Have a question: I like to try out InLinkz, you use, but in setting up a link, every time I come to the beginning and closing date (of the supposedly free try out – simple version without thumbnails),

    I get stalled with “there cannot be more than 60 days between opening and closing date. Extend your account.” Then when I go to my account, it seems I have to pay??

    So, is there no free try out? I put the dates on March 9 – 11 for a link to open and close …
    Thanks for getting back to me I would appreciate it:)

      I just logged in and tried the same thing and it works. Is it possible one of your dates is for a different year than 2016? Sorry, not sure what else it could be. I use the free version too and it tells me there can only be 33 days between opening and closing dates – which is fine for my needs. If you have any other questions contact me by email. Good luck 🙂

    Maisson Quessy, 1775. Since wandering around the UK, I’ve become a huge fan of this tradition of posting the year in which a house was built. The number 2 seems just a little off kilter (which I like), and there’s just that tiny bit of snow on the door sill. Was there a recent snowfall? Is it Spring and that is all that remains?

      Thanks, that one does have a certain charm about it. For around here 240 year-old building are considered historical treasures, whereas in Europe they’re considered spring chickens 😉

    Some lovely beige doors Norm but I love No 10 with the circles and unusual fanlight window.

    I like the brick work of Number 2! I’m sure the beige doors stand out more with the foliage is in bloom!

    Great doors! A mix of interesting handles, some appearing newer than others; some looking alive and some deserted; reflections…of you? The first is certainly stately, the second one very inviting and I like that little splash of color with the Maison sign. Thanks again for inspiring us and hosting. I, too, need to get out and shoot some new/more doors!

    Such elegant doors. Would that be the French influence? I like the first door with the contrast of the black door and the beige surrounds. I am back in Middle Earth country again this week

    Great collection! I really like the doorway framing of the first picture. How very grand. The fifth picture (with the #10 on it) is very bold. The door itself certainly makes a statement. This all makes me want to go get a new door at my house. I need more of a grand statement!

  22. Great collection in Beige! My favorite is the first door though. I love the arched glass window panels, and the fleur-de-lis in the bottom panels.

    Impressive collection, interesting that the fleur-de-lis is on the first and last ones

    My vote is definitely for the first door. That door screams uniqueness but in a very classy kind of way. Also, it has fleur-de-lis on the door panels. LOVE the fleur-de-lis.

    … but the 4th door also gets a nod because of the unusual hardware and that little mailbox on the bottom of the door. I’ve never seen a mailbox placed on the bottom of a door before now 🙂

    I gotta say, I love beige. It’s as timeless as white, but warmer. Love the portico on the first one, love the 63s and love the #2, but they’re all great doors 🙂

  26. I like something about all of them, Norm, but I like the stately beauty of the first and the simple beauty (and the surrounding stone) of the second.

  28. I really like the third from the last, #10. That is one handsome door but I love the glass above. Nice. 🙂

    I’m partial to stone and these doors are great with that element.

      Thanks Gayle and welcome. I added your post to the link up list and tried to comment but I can’t seem to figure out why it never works for me on Blogspot pages 😦

    Number 10 – long and tall, waiting to be opened.
    I like them all but that one is my favourite this week.

  31. Love them all, Norm. That last one is my favourite, though, set at such an interesting angle.

    You pulled some lovely doors out of the archives, Norm. I like the wooden door that is set back into a paneled entrance way. That’s a lot of woodwork. I also like the one, near the bottom where the door and the center window is higher than the side lights. I also like the arched doors, the arched transom light and the arched panels in the doors. I love the door at the bottom that is set into the corner! Did I miss any? Seriously, this is a great collection today.

    There is something regal and yet, not imposing in white or cream colored doors. I enjoyed all you chose from the Quebec location, Norm. Simply beautiful and care shown in preservation. 🙂

    Beautiful beige (bar one!) doors, I do miss solid, meaningful doors in this neck of the world!
