Dwellings: Shut the Front Door!

A couple of years ago my boo and I went to Ireland for a vacation/make an attempt to track down his heritage. One of these was a success, the other, not so much. One of the things that struck me most about this country, specifically Dublin was all the colorful doors on all the homes. The majority of the doors were painted some bright shade, and none were the same color (well within reason). On one of the tours we took the guide said the doors were painted in bright hues and differing colors so that men would know which house to stumble to after a long night at the pub. Now in any other country I would think that farce, but we are talking about Ireland here…Here are some colored doors that I find myself gravitating towards (also keeping them in my back pocket for when we buy a home).
