Winter can make doors look like entrances to fairy tale worlds or, more simply, the gateway to warmth, food and general merriment. We've picked out a few pictures of doors that we think capture that iconic winter atmosphere.
With a covering of fresh white snow and beautiful old lanterns lining the steps leading to the solid wood door, this entrance way suggests a cosy fire can be found inside.
Hidden behind snow-covered branches, this door could easily be the entrance to a secret winter world. The undisturbed snow leading to wooden double doors suggests no one has walked down this path in a while. Prompting us to wonder why.
The entrance to this grand American home gives the impression that the archetypical family will be enjoying the festive season behind the closed red door. All dressed in thick red sweaters, sitting around the fire opening presents and playing with the family dog.
This large wooden door appears to lead into a barn. One can imagine piles of dry hay stored inside to feed animals over the cold season. Envisage trudging through the snow, early in the morning to retrieve a bale of hay from behind this door. A wintrier scene would be hard to find.
If you think you’ve found a particularly wintery looking doorway please send in a photo. We’d love to share it with out readers and maybe even add it to this post.
