Portals of Palma

 walking down one of the myriad alley-ish streets of the mediaeval quarter, I might not have realized these were apartment entrances if I hadn't seen someone going into the first door with her shopping...

Those are absolutely wonderful! Wow, I'm just spellbound. And left with a tiny inclination to try to make my front door look like that second one :)
Thanks so much for sharing these!

What fun! Thanks for posting - I suspect we would all like to doodle on our doors now! Greetings from New Zealand

What an interesting and colourful way to brighten up a door. Nice find. PS: I fixed the link on my post.

These are both so wonderful, but that first one really sings. That door is so sad with the plumbing and electrical over shadowing it, and then the owner figures out a way to make it a pleasure to pass by - Just perfect!

Portals of art, delightful doorways that become destinations in and of themselves. Stylish, the residents can give direction by which way to turn when you get to a particular piece of art...

Wonderful! I wouldn't have realized they were doors either.

What an original and creative way to mark your entrance when it is part of a long concrete wall.

I have always loved the bright colors houses in the Mediterranean and other tropical places are painted.

I live in a condo complex of cookie cutter buildings and got a lot of flax when I moved in and painted my front door a sunny marigold (yellow-orange). But, my building did not belong to the condo associatian so they could not stop me. Now I here others saying they wish they could do something similar because they use my door as a guide when giving directions to their door.

My word, really? You sure wouldn't forget which door was yours.
