Paris Bleu




This post is for all of my readers who love the blue doors of Paris. There is an abundance of bleu in all shades and tints in the streets of Paris.

May your skies be as blue today as this door in the Marais.

Voilà une porte typique d'une maison bourgeoise parisienne! A noter les planches en pied de porte, en raison des courants d'air. :-)

I'm a great lover of blue doors and blue shutters. This is a lovely one!

Ann said...

THat is one lovely blue door,
with great details and it looks like it has quite a few history of its own too.

What a beauty.

Thank you Genie, that is one beautiful door, and yes the skies in Perth were so very blue today.

Best wishes,

My skies were looking blue earlier this morning, but now have turned a bit gray. :(

Love this door though. So many great things to photograph in Paris.

Beautiful detail in those gorgeous doors!

Never realized Paris had an abundance of blue doors...I always think of Greece when I think of blue doors!!!

rosaria said...

Lovely! Have a perfect Mother's Day.

Alexa said...

I'm a big fan of les portes bleus de Paris—and this one's a beauty! Merci bien.

I read somewhere that the government (it wasn't clear whether it was city or state government) is making an effort to change the Marais. It has been my experience that this is rarely a good thing. I hope they don't destroy the integrity of the village. How lucky you were to just miss the latest stupid strike in Paris.

Loree said...

I always find doors to be so intruiging because I always wonder who lives behind a particulat door.

Amanda said...

i didn't know there was an abundance of blue doors in paris - i wonder what the significance is of that?

lovely entryway. just want to open the door and walk right in......

This is Belgium said...

i am looking for this one particular blue door but have not found it yet !
Un bonjour de Paris ;-)

We have those blue skies for ever here I think. At least for 3 weeks now. Love the door and the iron work in it.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

megi -- C'est vrai et il y'a beaucoup de Paris rouge bien-sur, et aussi beaucoup de noir et blanc, mais je vais vous faire decouvrir Paris bleu de temps en temps. Merci!

Richard -- Je n'ai pas les noté... Merci, mon ami!

Loulou -- Moi aussi... I think that your area of France has lovely colors with much blue as well, n'est-ce pas.

Ann -- There is much history in these doors... If they could only talk

Vreni -- I will check on the address when I get home... This photo was for "you!"

beau gosse -- Nous sommes d'accord!

Brattcat -- Merci, mon amie

Grace -- So glad to hear you are enjoying blue skies and that you like this.

Halcyon -- I am enjoying blue skies in Michigan today, too!

AA -- The detail found on doors is so much more interesting than one can find at Lowes - hahahaha!

rosaria -- Merci, and you also

Alexa -- Merci, mon amie

Starman -- I am with you on this one.

Loree -- Living in your island country with its mysteries and secrets... I agree!

Amanda -- I do not know.... more research needed so I must go back (hehe)

Anni -- I wish I was there too and we could hunt down all the blue doors in Paris... of course, we would be stopping at patisseries along the way

biebkriebels -- Love the cool, clear blue skies of spring

Jack said...

This one benefits from some wear and fading. The metalwork is what catches my interest, even more than the blue of the door.

Jilly said...

beautiful. That's a perfect grey/blue and so gorgeous with the metal work (I think it's metal?) in the windows. Love the Marais!

Elizabeth said...

You are right, there is a lot of blue! (I suppose that is where the phrase French Blue comes from? ha).

Hello, just found your blog this morning and SO glad I did! Looking at it brings back so many memories of my first trip to Paris. I am a new follower and invite you to visit my blog.

Kate said...

Doors are endlessly fascinating...in many cities throughout the world; some of my favorites are Georgetown, DC, Santa Fe (of course) and Mazatlán, México (of course). Love both the blue and the iron work on this one.

James said...

Beautiful!

Shirley said...

What is the significance of blue, I wonder. These doors are lovely.

I am new to your blog and love it!
