Ever since I heard Hugh Grant describe the blue door that marked his flat in the film Notting Hill, I have thought about how charming and distinctive this design choice really is. Enter Brooklyn, and my new neighborhood there. Somehow it seems that there is a colorful door to be found on every block! I love it, and look forward to spotting one while walking around.
When I do find a brightly colored door, I’m instantly transported back to that opening scene in Notting Hill. I can’t help but think how fun it must be to describe your address with a simple statement: “It’s the one with the blue door.”
