Meet the Yellow Door Collection
What's in a door? Every time you pass through a door you direct your attention to that very moment. Doors are everywhere reminding us to pay attention to the world around us and to connect with life. Our fresh new collection is inspired by our whimsical iconic Yellow Door, the magical words above it, and the special moments that surround it.
More Than A Door
There is one feature that stands above the rest when you visit Terre Bleu, our now famous Big Yellow Door! Standing proud amongst the lavender blooms, its vibrant yellow paint in stark contrast to the brilliant hues of purple evokes almost instant joy when witnessed for the first time.
If you haven't visited the farm in person yet you have likely come across the Yellow Door online. The iconic image has been viewed millions of times on social and traditional media alike, and over 500,000 people have walked through the inspiring door itself.
Terre Bleu is a natural place of mindfulness, wellness, and the perfect antidote to the pressures of our busy daily lives.
The door and the positive message above it are emblematic of our mission. Much like a wishing well, our door and the poignant words of a ten year old above it, help many who walk through it, often exiting with feelings for brighter days ahead. Visitors frequently tell us how transformative the walk through the door was for them, that it was the beautiful mental trigger they needed to enact positive change in their life.
All In The Family
We are a family farm and the origins of the Yellow Door naturally are from family itself. When farm owner Ian Baird was envisioning plans for the land, he wanted to incorporate his love for the arts into the natural landscape through installations that elevated the experience of Terre Bleu, and caused one to think differently about the world around us. The unique juxtaposition of a Yellow Door oddly set in the middle of a field of lavender seemed just right. Adding to it, Ian wanted to incorporate a meaningful quote reflecting the core values of the farm. While imagining the inspirational words of Ghandi, Maya Angelou, and so many other greats Ian decided to ask his family what they thought would work above the door. It was at that point that 10 year old Madeline chimed in with the now iconic words "Walk through the door, your worries are behind you, your joys are ahead". It was at that moment that the family knew these were definitely the perfect words to adorn the door. Such a profound statement coming from the innocence and curiosity of a child, guiding us all towards a hopeful and joy filled future.
The Doorway to I Do
Our yellow door has not only been a staple on social media and on-farm Terre Bleu moments alike, it has also become a go-to romantic location for couples to pop the question. Perhaps for its simplistic beauty, whimsical nature or inspired optimism, whatever the reason our Yellow Door has served as the creative backdrop for the beginning of a lifetime of shared memories.
It is for these reasons and many others we decided it was time for us to create a collection of items centred around the Yellow Door and all the Joy it has helped inspire.
For those that have literally walked through the door and found their joys ahead, our new collection will serve as a reminded for so many of your beautiful Terre Bleu Moments long after your visit.
For those who haven't yet experienced the door and our farm in person, the collection hopefully invokes a feeling of joyful optimism for yourself and all who see it.
