The Doors of Orvieto – Part #3
Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time), by using the blue link-up button below.
The amazing thing about these smaller towns and villages is how much effort everyone seems to put into the small details in order to make each place, and each door stand out from all of the others.
Whether it’s the style, the finish, the shape, the hardware, or of course the color, everyone has their own take on what the ideal door needs to look like in order to both fit in and stand out.
I guess this is easier to do in milder climates where weather-proofing isn’t nearly as big a concern. I can confirm that none of these beauties would have fared well through the winter months in my part of the world 😀
In the meantime we wandered through many of the small streets and alleyways marveling at all of this ancient beauty.
I also came to the conclusion that people who live in these places probably don’t move very often because hauling furniture and appliances (and moving trucks!) into tight spaces like this is not a fun thing to do.
We only spent a few hours in Orvieto but the doors, the architecture, the atmosphere, the history, and most importantly, the company we were with, made it a magical afternoon of discovery.
