Here’s some advice: If you’re doing up your home’s porch or fixing up an old townhouse, and you want an exterior, from the door to the ironwork to the knockers, that arrests attention and is chiefly Maltese in character, then there is a page you should look at for inspiration, and a person you should meet.

If you look up MaltaDoors, you will find a collection of photographs, each capturing a slice of what makes Malta a jewel in the Mediterranean, charming people from every corner of the globe to visit us time and time again: our colourful, sometimes minimal, other times ostentatious and intricate, but always quirky, facades.
