Thursday Doors – Reims

This week’s door can be found on the property of Basilique Saint-Remi. While it’s true that Champagne is what brought my friend, Stephanie, and me to the city, we quickly found several things that we wanted to check out during our visit. One of those things was Basilique Saint-Remi, the UNESCO medieval Abbey church that’s […]

So it’s only fitting that this week’s door be in Paris. I considered going with a gorgeous and ornate door, but I chose this one instead. Because […]

Like a magical world full pastries, strong tea, soft music and lots and lots of fluffy kittens. Bonne journée! Marla Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door […]

Thursday Doors – Saint-Savin

This week’s door is from Abbaye de Saint-Savin-sur-Gartempe in Saint-Savin, France. The church, a recognised UNESCO World Heritage site, is famed for biblical themed murals – many which date back to the late 11th Century. Just like last week’s door, this one caught my eye not for the door itself but because of its impressive […]

Thursday Doors – Paris

This week’s post isn’t so much about doors themselves, but instead what I found on some doors in Paris. While making my way from Jardin du Luxembourg back to my hotel, I came across these little cuties. Of course I had to stop to take photos. The accompanying business was closed, so I wasn’t sure what […]

Thursday Doors – Paris

Remember when I shared photos from my visit Musée Marmottan Monet earlier this week? While I was preparing those posts I came across a photo of a fantastic door that I passed near to the museum entrance, and knew that I’d have to show it off today. I’m nothing if not a cat fanatic, so […]

Thursday Doors – Beynac-et-Cazenac

It’s days like today that I’m extra thankful for our home. It’s the one place where I can relax and feel safe while blocking out the craziness – and a certain virus – at the door. I’m sure that I’m not alone in this.

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.

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 […]

Thursday Doors – Chantilly

Since we’re knee deep in posts about the Château de Chantilly, I thought it was only appropriate to share a door I came across during my visit. Or, more accurately, the intricate gold detailing.

My sister, Brooke, and I passed this door while wandering around the Trastevere area of Rome. The curved top and floral vine made for a nice contrast against the dark wood of the door.
