WEDNESDAY DOORWAY: PASSAGE TO WHIMSEY

I would love to paint my granddaughter's bedroom door just like this. Pretty colors, wonderful thoughts, what's not to like? This is actually a retail establishment on the main outdoor shopping district in the city. What child wouldn't love to se what's on the other side?

  3. You said it perfectly: this is so beautiful and almost inviting, even for an adult...

  4. That is cute. I painted my children's room with a village scene, a puffy cloud sky; hope the subsequent owners of our apartment kept all that.

  5. So charming. And I love the colour too. Gorgeous feel to this. Any child would adore it.

  6. B Squared, make inquiries about the artist and hire them. You will support a struggling artist and give your granddaughter a magical gift.

  7. Has your granddaughter seen the door? And, what's stopping you from adding whimsy to her bedroom door?!

  12. Enticing! The adult in me suspects a storage room; the child in me just wants to imagine.
    My mom (an artist) painted murals on our walls when we were children - mine was a scene of the ocean floor, with many magical creatures...

  13. I'd need to be your granddaughter.

    I'm sorry I didn't get your comment about a guest poster... Duh, I'm thick, I know...

  15. Well, you could have your granddaughter's bedroom door painted just like this if 1) you could locate the artist, and 2) had enough money to pay for it.

    So go for it!

  17. I LOVE it. I really like murals of most any kind. Usually they are indoors. But I like this one.
    I think a girls bedroom painted like this would be wonderful. Go ahead and do it. MB
