Whimsical, unexpected style can also be sophisticated. When replacing the door pulls of a bathroom vanity, consider door knockers rather than pulls or handles. The key to using door knockers effectively is choosing those with the proper scale and proportion for a vanity's door fronts.
Like a bird of paradise, this unique door knocker sits outside a tropical beach home. Light reflects off his copper embellishment as he waits to knock on the wood. A lovely welcome into this Vero Beach spot.
Designer Brian Patrick Flynn painted this small bathroom's vanity a bright orange-pink hue to contrast with the neutral colors of the graphic wallpaper. Elegant door knockers take the place of traditional cabinet knobs for a one-of-a-kind look.
As seen on Vacation House For Free, the previous door was knocked down and the wall was opened up to allow light to flow into the rest of the house. The wall was evened out, which allowed for the vaulted ceiling in the dining space.
Habachy Designs wanted to create depth through texture. The chandelier is made from natural Nguni cow horn in Africa, the table is made of solid wood and clad in antique brass and textured. The dining chairs have a clean, modern silhouette but are slipcovered to give a more casual look. The atom bowl holding succulents is made of iron and hand-crafted which gives it more character. Accessories throughout the space are artifacts and imported pieces from Africa and Asia. The vintage lion door knocker was an accessory that was found, custom mounted and had a stand built specifically to showcase the piece on the mantel.
Unfortunately, sometimes restoring a home means knocking down the one next to it. Nicole was forced to sacrifice one house with major fire damage in order to save its next door neighbor, as seen on DIY Network's Rehab Addict.
Kortney and David knocked out the home's existing walls to create one open, visually and physically connected space where three separate, closed off spaces had been. They even opened the staircase to allow natural light to flow through this space as well as the kitchen, dining room and living room. The removal of these walls creates a clear line of sight from the front door through to the kitchen and back again, keeping the home's first floor feeling light, bright and open.
