Thursday Doors:  Cover the Earth

a rainbow
repatterned into
a grid of
layered hues–
come closer, look inside now–
behind the door, more

The doors and windows of this Sherwin Williams paint store on Amsterdam Avenue always catch my eye and makes me smile.

The actual entry door is to the side, complete with the symbol and motto “cover the earth”.

Sculptured door update: this now appears to be a building lobby, with a central garden/atrium inside. But strangely, not only is there no address number to identify the building, but all the surrounding buildings have their own numbered doors with mailboxes for tenants inside. Is it possible they are sharing the inside space and this is the “package room” for multiple buildings? The buildings are all 6 story tenement-style buildings, most likely walk-ups, with businesses on the first floor, so none of them have lobbies or doormen. I like that idea, if it’s indeed the case.

It’s supposed to get to freezing here next week, but in the meantime the flowers in the park are still blooming.

As always, you can see more doors and join in Thursday doors yourself here.

    For the middle of November, your post has a summery feel to it. I love the colors and the photos of the flowers, and the doors are great.

    Took a stroll yesterday and was surprised and pleased by the flowers still blooming in the streets and windowsills as well as by all the color in Riverside Park

    I love paint chip strips, and that door is fun! Strange about the entryway. We still have flowers here, too, despite the frost.

    I like that sculptured doorway. It’s reminescent of trees, an entrance into a magical grove. And lovely poem, Kerfe. Browsing paint colors and making combos is the best part of painting a room. 🙂
