  2. "Behind the Green Door" is a classic song by the Mills Brothers. The story is of a boy wondering what is going on in there. (Oops, it also is the title of famous porn movie. We'll ignore that one.)

  3. I was in Rome last summer, and I loved the doors-in-the-walls. Now I'm going to have to re-visit my photos and see if many were green. Perhaps it should be added as a good luck omen to your last post?

  4. I love the photos on this post. Doors and windows always looks so good in photos. One of these days, we'll make it to Rome.

  6. Isn't it amazing that we are so fascinated with these architecturally gorgeous doors that have such perfect craftsmanship and detail - including their rusting hinges, graffiti or splits.

  7. Never thought about it before, but maybe it is a lucky colour?

  8. Great photos! In my town it's the window shutters that are all green, but a much brighter, green pea sort of green!

    I'm starting to think that myself now. Green means envy in Italy, but perhaps not when applied to entry ways...
