Église Saint-Paul Saint-Louis - la porte rouge



2013 Nov22 Paris _20131122 260 DSC_2934


The red door


The renovations at this nearly 400-year-old church 
have made a remarkable difference in its presence on Rue Saint Antoine.  
The former door was a deep gray-maroon 
and lost in the dark pollution-stained surrounding structure. 


The interior has likewise been restored and repaired.


bon dimanche

Beautiful entrance.

Une couleur qui redevient à la mode après avoir longtemps été considérée comme "vulgaire". Il faut dire qu'elle a longtemps été associée aux lieux de débauche.

We once had an apartment only a few steps from here. Love the door treatment.

The colour really brings out the beautiful ornate detail on the door - gorgeous!

So inviting! I want to cross that elegant threshold and see what is inside. Bon dimanche!

If you readers could see a "before" photo, they would appreciate this even more.

I was so thrilled to find this church all spruced up since I had last seen it—and they chose a perfect color for the doors, didn't they?

Bisous!
