Thursday Doors from Amsterdam

Door070815CollageStrolling around Amsterdam, I caught this interesting house and door.

The colors are somewhat different with coral on the house, turquoise shutters, and the very dark green door.

There are shutters on some windows, scroll iron work on others, and some type of exterior roll shade on another.

The windows adjacent to the door are different, and it appears there may be ironwork on the inside of the glass in the door.

Add all that to the two concrete goddesses, and you definitely have unique and eye-catching. 🙂

    Interesting how the house exterior seems completely unified with all the disparate elements. I like the color scheme.

    Wow! there is a lot going on on this building. The door is beautiful and the entrance way is interesting the way it curves in. Great choice!

    Yes! Interesting and beautiful – I like (what looks like) the pair of carved lounging deities (?) cherubs (?) flanking the entrance. You only see those in the oldest buildings! And I wonder if those are mail slots below them? Lots going on here – all of it fascinating!

  5. Judy, I just love these doors. What a wonderful way to photograph your trip, and then to enjoy each one as you share it.

  6. To me, it looks like two sea faring children, the girl Dutch, the boy Asian. They seem to lean on a triangle, a boatshape. I would not be surprised if the house was built by a sea merchant who got his wealth from trading in China and/or Japan. I first thought of a VOC connection, but I cannot find their trade mark on the facade. The Dutch were for the longest time the only Europeans/foreigners able to trade with Japan and China. Interesting post, tried to google the house but could not find it. Very unusual, normally the merchants/house owners would show their profession, trade and wealth in a tile on the facade, usually above the front door. xo Johanna

    That turquoise is one of the colors I enjoyed most in European travels, and it is stunning against the coral.

    What?

    Oh yeah, I’m supposed to be viewing the doors 😊

    Interesting house, Judy. Good observation on your part! It reminds me of those ‘find the differences’ puzzles between two seemingly identical pictures.

  13. Far more attractive security measures over the windows than I see in some of the neighborhoods in my area. Lovely carvings on each side of the door. So interesting!
