My decorating style is changing...
Its been happening for a while now, I find myself more and more drawn to craftsman style/modern vintage decor. Is that even a style? I think modern-vintage is a good descriptor because I still want things to be somewhat matchy but yet, I like the vintage look--you know, new things that are made to look like they are vintage :-). Does that make any sense?
This Whirlpool commercial features the kind of style of home I am loving right now:
I love everything about it (other than the upper walls need to be painted something other than white). I love the flat panel millwork, those shaker style doors and the crystal door knobs (ah.... I really love those doorknobs) and even the lighting fixtures are cool looking. I just dig it. By the way, I would love to hear how you would classify that style of home..craftsman, or cottage-y maybe???
Anyway, I have officially decided that if I had the opportunity to build a new house today, I would go with a similar style....I would ditch all of my current furnishings and start from scratch. :-)
Since that probably isn't going to happen today, or anytime soon for that matter, I took the liberty of buying this little gem off of eBay (in an effort to satisfy my current fetish):
Isn't it cute? Allegedly, it is true vintage...I have my doubts (it looks brand new)...but regardless, I bought it for just six dollars and I think it would be adorable as a closet door knob in the upstairs bedroom that I am currently working on (more on that later). The brass part of the knob will have to go....I still do not like brass, but I can spray paint that part with no issues. The issue will be figuring out how to install it on the closet since that is not what it is designed for Tee hee. :-)
So there it is....a modern-vintage door knob and my not-so-big project for the weekend. What about you, what are you working on? Do share!
