Over the last 6 weeks I’ve walked the neighborhood taking a different route each day. Believe me, there is a lot to notice when you start paying attention.
One thing is the variety of entries. They have so much to say about the style of the house, they add color and texture and I suspect they something about the interior decor.
While I’ve noticed the house many times, the pink door never caught my eye. It struck me as very feminine and I liked thinking the guy who lives there is OK with that. Together with the porch and landscaping, the overall impact is quite inviting.
Here there is some mystery as to whether or not these doors are the main entry. For sure my curiosity was piqued and I wanted to peek inside the arch to see what lay inside.
I had to stop and take a second look at these doors as the design reminded me of Frank Lloyd Wright. While they made me think of his craftsman style, that wasn’t at all the look of the house.
Throughout the neighborhood original homes have given way to larger ones. Entries appear to be an important part of architectural design and impress me as becoming more dramatic.
Houston is a very international city so it was not surprising to note that some entries display more than the Stars and Stripes to indicate a home country.
As I looked at entry after entry, it dawned on me just how different they can be.
Looking at our own, that is certainly true! I have to say our doors may be among the more unique as they are the total inspiration of a local glass artist. Hmmm, I wonder if people take note as I have done on my walks.
