AppletonModern Entry, Los Angeles
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Is this from Alice in Wonderland? This gigantic door dwarfs the little girl standing in the doorway. It's an exaggerated illustration of scale and how we judge an object in relationship to an ideal or norm, such as the human body. Disproportion isn't always a negative, however. The overscale door and decorative surface pattern are stunning. From our vantage point, the door has a strong relationship with the bold red entry walk. Together the elements make an unforgettable impact.
Using a child as a scale model makes this oversize door look even larger than it is, but even so, this is one tall entrance. A door this size takes full advantage of the beautiful grain patterns. It needed to be this big for the pattern to hold its own against the uniform wooden planks around the rest of the home's facade.
