Come on In

With the New Year approaching, my next project is sprucing up a small entryway.  Doorways… closing on one space and opening into another… hello 2011 and a fresh new entry out into you!

The door of this entry is slightly more than the hollowcore interior door and the door knob is a cheap 80’s throw back.  The first step is going to have to be a good coat of paint.  If it was a more traditional space raised panels would give the door more visual interest, but since this is a clean modern apartment… paint will do.

As design enthusiast we know, it’s all in the details when it comes to designing a great space, so obviously that door knob has to go.  I think I’ll have to go with something simple, so that the exterior blends with the other apartments, but I found some great door knobs (mostly interior) that you might be interested in for your next project.

Aren’t these knobs so romantic?  They are both from Graham and Green.

This elegant design glass door knob is made by Out of the Blue Design.  They do custom work too!

This hammered metal door knob and the red swirl knob are both from Hardware Hut.

Sadly, nothing I saw out there has any recycled content yet, but I’m at least going to take my old ones to the reuse center near me and there are some beautiful antique ones out there like this if you are going vintage.

Next, I need a small space solution to our shoes in the entry.  There is only about 1′ between the door frame and the wall.  So I’m thinking of using a solution that holds the shoes vertically like this.  Any ideas?  Please share.
