HOW TO RE-USE OLD DOORS - old beauty with a new destiny

doors, marrakech, homestyling

Doors ...

If there is something that 'might' reveal what's hidden behind the walls in the medina, than it must be the door.  Often the only element exposed in the pink walls of the centre.

The magic and surprise when they open and they reveal a spacious inner garden, or a modest home.  it doesn't matter what's behind, the magic stays the same and the door often protects the ones living behind. Symbols and Moorish patterns on wood or metal. They all serve to protect and praise and...sometimes arouse our curiosity

Even after a life long service, their beauty is not in vain, and many a door has found itself a new future inside a modern home....

Let's look at our selection!
