Doors of Santa Fe

by John Lonergan

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Doors reveal the spirit of those who live behind them. Sometimes, if one is lucky, doors reveal the character of a place with such specificity that one cannot mistake where they are located. Santa Fe, New Mexico, is such a place. Founded over 400 years ago, its inhabitants have forged a style from Spanish (not Mexican!), pueblo and Anglo styles that result in a look that is different from anywhere else.
The colors reflect and contrast with those of the high desert blue sky, the subdued blues of the distant mountains, the reds of the ferrous soils, and the greens of the juniper trees. They contrast with the various adobes (five official colors in Santa Fe) in ways that make them stand out from their surroundings. This book is about more than doors. It’s about entering a unique lifestyle, a way of looking at the world, and of reflecting the world in which one lives. Doors are the first thing one sees when coming to one’s home, or the home of a friend. Doors represent. They both reflect and contrast with the landscape.
