Urban Front - Contemporary Front Doors UK

We went on a trip to Australia and checked out the local architecture

Its not every day that you get to enjoy the sunshine on the other side of the world, but being half Australian our director Elizabeth spent a few days walkabout in Sydney checking out the architecture and doors on display.

Quite a few of the areas in Sydney have federation terraces which look quite Victorian in appearance with beautifully coloured doors. We specifically liked the bright neon orange! There are also a lot of contemporary new builds and refurbishments with a mishmash of results.  It was interesting to see how many houses have gates (even some more beautiful than the front doors). In addition, we loved the fact that a lot of the front doors are actually hidden in seamless garage door and architectural wall fittings. There was quite an Art Deco feel too.  We absolutely loved the house with the lift as a garage too!

All in all the walkabout in Sydney gave us a real insight into how the other side of the world live!!

Bold colours are all the rage in Victorian Terraces and Federation buildings.
