I just ran across this set of shots of doors I took when I was in Rome last year on assignment, and they just captivated me.

Doors in general are a very important design statement, they express volumes about what they are keeping in, as well as what they want to say to the world.

I love designing custom entryways! I think this must come from working on hotels, where I craft the arrival experience to create the experience I want the guests to have.

Doors are the essence of the structure's tells you about age, distinction, and purpose .

And of course, this is a very important door, the door to Alessandro Dari's workshop in Florence! Check out his jewelry at


  1. I see doors as a fiction writer, and I have now created stories for what is behind those doors. Interesting pictures!

  2. Love doors too! These ones look like they have a lot of history in them, which adds to their charm. Oh, and nice finale too. :)

  3. @Madison: Fantastic! Love the story angle.

    @ajpoliquit: They certainly do! Thanks :)
