Saturday Snapshot

August 27, 2011

When Carl and I were in Northern Ireland, we noticed that many of the people dressed up an otherwise drab house with a bright, colorful door.  We spotted this one in the little town of Glenarm.

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books.  It’s easy to participate – just post a picture that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Alyce’s site.

    I love this photo and how it represents the owners’ attempts to be individuals. Plus, that door takes a grey house and makes it wonderful1

    I love the way the colorful door takes the focus off a somewhat blah house.

    I love this photo. I always wonder what modern day Ireland looks like, because basically, the only pictures I have ever seen have come from historical memoir type books. Looks like I really need to do my homework!

    Love that this door is red

  5. August 27, 2011 11:22 am

    I like that a lot! A splash of color!

  6. August 27, 2011 11:24 am

    Love that look! Just costs the price of a can of paint!

    So pretty. The bike is a nice touch.

    That photo definitely captures the houses in Ireland and the UK: drab exterior with a bright door, I love it!

    I also see they added some hanging baskets and pots of flowers. And very symmetrical too. It’s an eye-catcher.

    What a great little house! Red doors are supposed to be lucky.

    My Snapshot is here.

    I love splashes of colors like this, it makes the building look interesting

  12. August 27, 2011 12:49 pm

    Oh wow, I love this! It looks perfectly serene in terms of temperature which is a divine concept in the middle of the hot Atlanta August!

    I love this door. At our last house, we did the same and painted it neon blue.

  14. August 27, 2011 1:58 pm

    Clever idea.

  15. August 27, 2011 3:15 pm

    It is beautiful…nothing says cheerful like a really awesome red door…

  16. August 27, 2011 3:27 pm

    Ha that’s cute!

  17. August 27, 2011 3:33 pm

    a red front door is the BEST! That’s what I always look for in a house! Very cool picture

  18. August 27, 2011 3:34 pm

    The door definitely makes the house stand out. Love it.

  19. August 27, 2011 3:56 pm

    Makes the house look more inviting. As do the plants on the balcony! I love the bike sitting outside the house!

    I love the Georgian doors of Ireland.

  21. August 27, 2011 5:05 pm

    This is a wonderful shot!

  22. August 27, 2011 6:04 pm

    I love red doors! My house in the foothills had one…it was more of a burgundy, but really made the house pop. Thanks for sharing, Kathy, and for visiting my blog.

  23. August 27, 2011 6:22 pm

    Wonderful snap. I love the splashes of color in the doors of Ireland! Hope all is well with you today…

  24. August 27, 2011 6:34 pm

    I love a red door on a house. I find them warm and inviting! Great photo!

  25. August 27, 2011 7:02 pm

    That does put just the right dab of color in doesn’t it? Plus, I live in Columbus, Ohio, Ohio State country where the colors are scarlet and gray. This house would fit right in.

  26. August 27, 2011 8:08 pm

    If it weren’t for the door and the bit of sky it would look like a black and white photo. It definitely needed that extra bit of color!

  27. August 27, 2011 8:58 pm

    Love that red door! Thanks for sharing … and maybe I should go and buy some red paint for my boring white door, LOL.

  28. August 27, 2011 9:27 pm

    That door looks so cheerful. I’d want to knock on it and visit with the people inside.

  29. August 27, 2011 9:35 pm

    There’s something about the picture that makes the house look much taller than I think it really is. Interesting angle!

    So cheery!

  31. August 27, 2011 11:19 pm

    Oooh, it looks so pretty! I would love to have a blue door. Or maybe purple. My favorite colors! Awesome shot =].

  32. August 27, 2011 11:20 pm

    I love that concept. That picture really stands out for that reason!

  33. August 28, 2011 1:09 am

    The red door is so striking! Excellent photo. I love a bit of color in an otherwise drab site.

  34. August 28, 2011 2:05 am

    What a pretty place.

  35. August 28, 2011 3:22 am

    Great looking house and the red door goes well against the grey.

    I love the contrast vibrant red against the grey. Nice pic 🙂

    Wow, does that red really pop right out from the photo. Nice shot!

  38. August 28, 2011 12:17 pm

    I love bright doors like that. They could be Ohio State fans, with the scarlet & gray 🙂 Football’s on the way!

  39. August 28, 2011 12:30 pm

    what a great picture. that’s definitely interesting that the only color they have on their houses over there is on the door.

  40. August 28, 2011 5:03 pm

    I love to take pictures of doors! Especially brightly colored ones – this was just gorgeous!

  41. August 28, 2011 5:59 pm

    So cute! I have always wanted a house with a bright red door.

  42. August 29, 2011 12:10 am

    There is a church in our town that’s a boring gray brick that has a beautiful arched red door. I admire it every time I drive past!

  43. August 29, 2011 8:16 am

    Great framing in this photo. The way the door just POPS! Love it!

  44. August 29, 2011 9:00 pm

    Best use of a red door ever!!!

  45. August 30, 2011 7:07 am

    Love it!

  46. August 31, 2011 1:29 pm

    Love this picture as I love european doors and windows as my blog banner shows:)

    Very feng shui – a red door signifies drawing wealth to the house. I love it! 🙂
