Doors

Last week I visited a wonderful place in Waimanalo. The property itself will be the topic of a later blog entry, but today I wanted to show you about some of the great doors I saw there.

Few things can be as intriguing as a closed door, or as inviting as an open one. Most doors look drab and dull, when they could be colorful, ornate and exciting. Would you rather open a boring off-white door or one of the beauties below?

If Juliet had lived in Bali, her balcony would have looked like this.

A door to nowhere - proving that doors can have a purely decorative purpose. 

How many hours must have taken to carve this beauty?

Do you have a favorite door? Do you prefer the friendliness of an open door or the mystery of a closed one?  As always, I welcome your thoughts! Aloha!
