I love you the best

Better than all the rest

I love you the best

Better than all the rest

That I meet in the summer

Indian summer

That I meet in the summer

Indian summer

I love you the best

Better than all the rest

Song by Doors

what a nice coincidence! Here are some more Doors! 😀

Grand entry

Door with faux jharokas (window)

Entry way masquerading as a peacock

Ornate door in a soothing shade of green

A door as a door is supposed to be…strong!

And a beautiful entry to a humble abode

And when it comes to doors, you also think about…

Bolts

Locks

and maybe a sentry or two if you like hiding treasures…


This was a glimpse into some of the doors as seen in old palaces and forts in India…more towards North India. In upcoming posts, I will also cover doors from other parts of India 🙂

  1. awesome, awesome, awesome! U r the best bhavna! amazing song amazing doors amazing connect. Loved that lock! and against such an unusual clour too. And those Jaipur doors- one for each season- I could do a study and thesis on each of them separately- what brilliant designers those were- who wrought them with such love.

  2. Oh what beautiful doors! I take photos of doors like this whenever I travel – they are so gorgeous and have survived such history! The modern reproductions just don’t have the same patina or look.

  3. Thanks Patricia! I would actually love to try a DIY with a wooden chest of drawers…maybe with suzani fabric 🙂

    Glad you liked the intro Robyn…I was in a mood to be a bit cheeky
