If there is one thing that Italy and most European cities have, it is beautiful doors. I could barely walk a block without stopping to snap a picture. I even bought an antiqued lion head door knocker for the gorgeous black lacquered front door that I don’t even have (yet)! Their doors are just so unique and intriguing that they deserved a post of their own.
*Again, most of these photos were taken with an iPhone. Apologies for the quality.
So much attention to detail with these doors. Soft blue, matching shutters, nailheads, and great iron work. Perfection.
Now that is a lion! Love the paneling on the door and the black and white marble floors.
What a lovely and soft seafoam color.
Not the most inviting knocker, but this monkey reminds me of figures in my great grandmother’s home. Terrified me then, and terrifies me now.
Gray stained doors with such prominent paneling. A monochromatic masterpiece!
Why can’t all door bells look this chic?
Very rich looking wood and detailed paneling.
Another interesting knocker. Such a different shape for the handle.
The Trastevere neighborhood in Rome would be much more charming without the abundant graffiti. Such a shame.
The hotel doors at Castiglion del Bosco in Tuscany. So quaint and chic!
These matte blue doors with nailhead detail were one of my absolute favorites.
Great paneling. Fierce knockers.
Pure charm in Montalcino.
Love the brick arch around the doors. I wanted to walk right in!
Wonderful large doors with such great detail.
Very Roman knockers. Arrivederci!
