A Jewel

If you have been following my blog for any amount of time, you have surely already come to the conclusion that there are a lot of interesting doors in Prague and that the supply seems to be endless. I could put only the creme-de-la creme doors on here each day, but then that would leave you without all the other doors that, while maybe less glamorous, are nevertheless interesting and beautiful doors that deserve being noticed, appreciated and even loved.

All week you have seen honorable and worthy doors, so I thought that today you deserve to see a little jewel (in my opinion!) is definitely very nice - not THE top of the top, but certainly lovely and inviting. So much so that it makes my heart go pitter-patter (yes, call me strange, but a pretty door makes my heart leap a bit!). I like all the elements of this door: its columns that are completely different from each other; the oval window under the delicate garlands; the terrace that protects the frame and the door; the various faces that watch over the door; the colour of the wood; the movement of the carved wood; the romantic simplicity of the overall design; and finally, the door's accessories.

As a little cherry on top, if you look at the photo of the close-up of the window you will see a pretty reflection of part of another beautiful door located just across the street (I will post that door some other time)...just please don't mind the reflection of the car!!

yes, a real jewel! I only think that maybe, this door would have deserved a more beautyful lock to be absolutely perfect!

This is definitely a very lovely door indeed. I love the warm hue of the wood and the surrounding creamy yellow.
