Love Antique doors…Part II
It looks like France has some serious competition when it comes to doors and entrances that i love. In the cities of Rome & Florence the doorsets are often seen in polished rich coloured timbers where as the smaller villages many of the old doors have a lovely, almost unkept rustic simplicity; though the paint work is not maintained quite as the French would like it!(nor the aussies for that matter).
This weathered time worn look is often what makes ‘old things’ so appealing, & often a focus of our sourcing along with colour & texture. It is perhaps worth remembering when buying a piece for your place – perfect isn’t always best.
