Green Doors from Around the World 2

A collection of green doors from around the world.

A narrow street in Asilah, Morocco. Some Moroccans on the train with us told us that Asilah was almost entirely done up in Islamic green, just as the next town after was done mostly in Islamic blue. a narrow street in Asilah, Morocco It’s funny how in some places it seems as if someone decided to paint a door green, it caught on and soon the whole neighbourhood (or town) has green doors. This was the case in Mondoñedo, Spain, where this beautiful sea green dominated.

  1. What I find interesting here is the patina & texture of the doors. Although I hadn’t thought of it, you’re right that there seems to be a hive mind, that makes an entire community paint their neighborhood the same color. Either that, or it was the only color available at the neigborhood shop! Thanks for your Friendly Friday submission Elizabeth 😉

  2. Good for you Elizabeth – you made the challenge even more challenging by focusing on a single color. Loved them all, and loved the choice of green!

  3. I didn’t think there would be so many different shades of green doors. I like your variety and especially the green door that turned a corner – very unique!!

    • The green door that turned a corner made me do a double take in my head. Both doors have to enter into the same space so why the need for two doors? Feuding families each wanting their own private door? Who knows?
