Isn’t it funny when you start noticing something – a colour or a shape – and then it just seems to be everywhere? I’m finding the Collections feature on Instagram has really ramped this up for me, giving me enormous pleasure as I sort the endless scroll of Instagram images into groups.
One of my favourite collections is called ‘Round Doors & Windows’, and it’s stuffed with pics!
The question is: Does seeing so many round doors and windows mean I’ve spotted a growing trend, or is it just that I notice them because I’ve been noticing them? It’s hard to say, but then again, perhaps I am onto something. After all, this terrazzo trend that’s happening so hard right now? I predicted it on this very blog, way back in 2015! So maybe I do know… and maybe I don’t. Whichever it is, I like these round doors and windows enough to put some of them into a blog post.
