Traditional Door at Howick Hall

Traditional door with light and ornate knocker at Howick Hall

I loved the muted colours and overall mood of this traditional entrance at Howick Hall. The door furniture has the lovely patina of age and use, but seems almost dwarfed by its setting, helping to give a sense of the scale of the doorway.

A close up of the lion motif door knocker highlights its steady gaze: we sense it is there to protect as well as to embellish.

I wrote an earlier post about Howick’s sensory garden here, but saved these to share for Norm’s Thursday Doors.
