A little too severe for me


Personally, I find this door heavy and a bit depressing, but someone must have liked it or it wouldn't be here. The window work is nice and if it was just up to the door itself, I would be quite fine walking through it each day to go home, but I find the frame so severe that when I see the door and frame together I have the desire to make a 180 degree turn and run off. But that's just me. Maybe you like it!

I have to agree with you, the door itself is very nice but that frame is really imposing.

It's an interesting collection of shapes. I wonder what it leads to?

Maybe not severe, I'd say very masculine: no curves, no flowers , no other lovely decorations..Only straight lines and squares.Efficient.

I agree...prefer the curves, arches and angles around the doors to make them softer....

The design above the door resembles a vice to me...seems to give off a sense of strength and power, maybe even oppressive!
