A lot like Love.

I have been thinking hardware lately, knowing that I will be refinishing some old furniture pretty soon. Knobs and handles are sure to make all the difference, so the first place that came to mind was anthropologie. I have been admiring their hardware since the late 90′s, and now they have all kinds of drool-worthy items (stay tuned for a post on their bedding…weak in the knees.)

Anthropologie Teal KnobOkay, I can’t help but notice this color first. My brain is hard-wired for blue-greens. This is the ‘Cabinet Caret Knob’.

A little too bright for my project, but this would be great on an old white washboard cabinet. (and it’s called the Jeweler’s Knob. again, my bias.)

SO pretty, super-fem and shabby. Cottage style. This is called the ‘Gemstone Knob’. I didn’t pick these names on purpose. I swear.

Umm, okay, I am going to need two of these for the bathroom cabinet. These knobs are perfect for a pop of color in an otherwise neutral space. “The Big Easy Knob”. Agreed.

How to choose with all these beauties?

Anthropologie also has switch plate covers. The pressed tin-type are wonderful. When I was single, I often went out and bought specialty fabric and custom papers to cover the switchplates in my house. It is a fun and fantastic DIY project, especially if you’ve come across a print that you love. Everyone always commented on the unexpected covers. Now that I don’t have endless free-time, however, I would love to get some of these.

    Absolutely beautiful artwork; I have a daughter at the Art Institute of Chicago and many of these designs could be hanging on a wall there! Congratulations on making the world a little more beautiful.
