#ThursdayDoors — Shady Lane

These doors are all neighbors. The warm wooden doors and thoughtful details give such a homey, welcoming feel.

“My, what a lovely home,” I’d say to any one of them.

I can’t pick a favorite, although I lean a bit toward 324. I love that doorknob and the standing letterbox. Plus, it’s yellow and it has a porch. But they’re all charmers, aren’t they?

  1. You’re right. All of the doors are charming and homey. I love the transom windows above the doors. πŸ™‚

    They most certainly are charming. I think I lean a bit towards 407. The 2 tone color, the transom window with lace curtains and especially the light reflection that makes the whole thing look as though it has a bar code. Rather quirky.

    Nice neighborhood! #321 is my fave: the colors, the trim around the window, the address in the window above the door, the frame – so much to love πŸ™‚

  5. Not only are they charmers, but I love as well the light and shadow play on several. So cheeky!

    Those are all great doors, but I’m leaning toward 331. The detail on the wood door, the brick steps, the porch trim, the color of the shutters. That door/house calls to me.

    Beautiful! They remind me of some of the doors in the West End of Louisville, where I grew up. It’s one of the oldest parts of town, and now one of the poorest, a little shabby, but some of the houses were beautiful, and had such wonderful detail. I love those transoms! An important cooling feature in houses with 10-foot ceilings.

    Of course, now I’ll be humming The Naughty Lady of Shady Lane all day! lol

    I like the quaint little porch of 331, I’m sure those are “good” people :).

    I would love to sit on the porch of the first photo and 331 with some iced tea and a book; however, I wonder about the steps to the door in the second photo. It seems to me that they could be a little dangerous if one was out of sorts or wasn’t paying attention or had too much wine.

      I agree. My back door is like that, and it’s quite atrocious in wet weather, snow and ice. But then, I looked at the cost of buying new steps…and the time in framing and pouring your own, and well, those steps will be atrocious a bit longer πŸ˜‰

  10. We are so boring out here, I’d have to search in some very specific areas to find anything that would make an interesting door. In my neighborhood we have someone who has a red steel door instead of the standard white…quite the shocker really…lol

    Love Thursday doors, especially when whimsical. My favorite was still the gate you’d found, I know, not a door…but it makes my imagination soar!

    This is a nice collection. It is hard to choose, but I’m going to go with 353. I like the little overhang and the lamp and I like the somewhat random dark bricks in the wall.

  14. All beautiful. Partial to the contrasts of 331. Sad that new homes rarely have this kind of detail. Do you know approximate age ? Lovely community.

  15. I love these doors too. I think I’ve commented here before that I think windowed doors are gorgeous, but I’d never feel safe with the glass that close to the knob.

    I like 321 best, with all the different details. I’ve been on the look out for interesting doors here, but still haven’t found any. All I see are plain glass storm doors on houses, and all businesses are just plain glass, that you push or pull to get in or out, or those automatic opening ones. Boring! Keep posting your interesting finds! I love looking at them. πŸ™‚

    I’m booting the neighbors out of 331 and taking over. All of these homes are adorable. And they look small. Less cleaning!

  21. They’re all very beautiful, Joey, especially with the shadow effect. I really like 331, with its lovely shutters and decorative porch. The chair cushion even matches the shutters.

  23. GAH! It is hard to pick a fav! If I had to I’d pick NΒ°321. I love the etched house number in the Transom window above the door, and the ornate glass and carving or molding on the door.
    It’s Americana to me.

    I also really like the black and white one at the top. But, I love black and white everything. It’s just so classy and timeless no matter what it is. Next to Red, and Blue doors this combo is right up there.

    Great selection and neighborhood doors!

    What a wonderful neighborhood. It’s the kind of neighborhood I wish we lived in. Everybody’s door in our neighborhood looks the same. Some may be a different color, but yet they are the same as the next.

  25. What a handsome display of doors, you over achiever you. I love 321 because it is so different and not something I’d pick out. πŸ™‚

    whoa! Tough call. I too hadn’t noticed that each had a transom. I think I would lean towards 321. First, it’s such a great house number πŸ˜‰
    Maybe it’s the dappled sunlight, the window glass, the ornate door, the number in the transom, the yellow house (I grew up in a yellow house) … I don’t know. This one talks to me πŸ™‚

  28. Woah! I liked your post but had no time to check all the doors. This is one of your best posts about this challenge. All of them are gorgeous. #2 is maybe my favorite but the chairs on the front porch, aw…
