White on White with a Touch of Grey

This entrance is fabulous! It opens to the courtyard shown below. You don't often see white shutters, do you?

Considered for demolition, this c.1950 house in Bryn Mawr PA on a 4-acre sloped and overgrown property was recovered with major renovations and additions. Besides tight spaces there was no true entry. Archer and Buchanan Architects took care of that problem and more. See more pics here. Very nice indeed.

What a good observation . . . how true, you rarely do see white shutters.

Regarding the gray colored archway around the door, you don't suppose it could be the natural color of marble, do you? Or tiles made from natural stone?

MamaPea....I meant the grey double doors. You are right about the light grey natural stone.

Very elegant. They did a wonderful restoration!

Well, duh, of course you did. I think I should put on my jammies and get straight into bed tonight. Spent the day doing emergency roof repairs and splitting and stacking firewood with hubby out in the cold and brisk wind. Not only did that take the stuffings out of me but powers of observation and understanding with it! :o}
