The doors in these Victorian row houses are not quite as beautiful as the brickwork and the transom windows. But their very difference in styles makes this an interesting study. Neither door suits, in my opinion.

  1. the stained glass transoms are really nice. but I agree the doors are not suited to a Victorian.

  2. How intriguing! You’re right in that neither really matches, but they don’t match to such an extreme that this whole image looks like a work of art! Great find!

  3. You are right, neither door quite fits. Its interesting though the similarities and differences between them.

  4. You are so right!

  5. I am no architectural expert (but I know what I like ;>)…. and this ain’t it! Looks like the two owners are trying too hard to be individual, different from each other, but neither thought about how their front entry would actually look.

  6. The diversity of these doors is charming and gives one a lot to observe. And I also noted the doormat on the left…not sure what to think about that! I would not want to wipe my feet on someone’s flag…

  7. While they may not match the Victorian decor, the doors definitely display the personalities and tastes of the owners.

  8. I agree the doors are not what I would choose for the period of the building but I like the fact that they are not some mass produced twins like so many of the cookie-cutter homes in subdivisions here.

  9. I am not so crazy about the white one…just the stark whiteness, but would like it in another color. But thinking if the doors were the same, no matter which of the two…that it might look better. Just use different colors, or something on the door to decorate if wanting to them to have an individual personality.
