Thursday Doors – Paris

This week’s Parisian door is a little different. Instead of being external and ornately decorated, this one can be found at the dark end of an hallway at Hotel La Louisiane in the city’s popular Saint-Germain-des-Près area.

The first time I encountered this door, it gave me a fright. There I was minding my own business, lugging my suitcase down the dimly hallway in search of my room after a long sleepless overnight flight from Vancouver. Suddenly a creepy man appeared in front of me.

After my initial confusion, the door became a beacon letting me know I was on the correct floor. I’m much better at quickly adjusting European floors to those here in North America (our 1st floor is their ground floor, our 2nd floor is their 1st floor, and so on..) but it wasn’t always so easy for me.

Bonne journée!

    1. Sorry for the delay in responding. Your comment was caught in the spam filter. 🙃 I didn’t ask but will next time I visit. The hotel hosts art exhibitions on occasion so I suspect that this door was a leftover from a previous installation?
