Thursday Doors – Chantilly

I know, I know. My contribution to Thursday Doors last week was also from Château de Chantilly. But this week’s door is different, and you’ll soon see why I wanted to share it.

While last week’s door was over the top shiny and gold, understandably not to everyone’s taste, this week’s is more natural.

I immediately noticed the carving, with the crown and Fleur de Lys (which is pretty standard for French Châteaux in my experience).

But another feature I really liked was the door’s hardware.

(Eek.. sorry for the blurriness)

Aren’t they lovely with their intricate details? If I wasn’t feeling so lazy right now, I’d get up and take a photo of the door to our apartment to share as comparison. It’s depressingly boring and drab. Le sigh.

Tomorrow I’ve got the third Alphabet series post scheduled to be published, but will be back the day after that with more Château de Chantilly. Until then..

Bonne journée!
