Door of the Month – June 2024

I had the chance to visit Reykjavik on a business trip recently. I didn’t have much time to explore Iceland, but I did make time to explore the doors of Reykjavik.

The bright blue wall on which this door is set initially caught my eye. My favorite part of this door screams Iceland: the lower panel features a Viking-inspired carved design. What an outstanding door!
