The Decorated Door

My last post got me thinking about how much fun it is to enhance a door with interesting hardware.  It's so important not to skip these details that will add character to your entry.  I like to keep door hardware simple by choosing understated shapes and designs such as these that I've picked out.  Stick with one era when choosing your door accessories.  Your door knob, hinges, door knocker, door bell and peep holes should all be of one style so it doesn't look like a "hodge podge welcome to my home" unless that's what your going for.  Some of my favorite hardware stores are Liz's Antique Hardware in Los Angeles, Olde Good Things in NYC, and Crown City Hardware in Pasadena
