Colors and Hardware Inspiration from Europe

colors-europe

I spend some time looking over all the photos I took over the past year and came across this collection of images that I took while visiting Europe (Rome, Cinqueterre and Paris) this past spring. I paid specific attention to paint patinas and hardware while traipsing around town, gleaning inspiration for new collections. I really do miss this about Europe: the old weathered woods in corals, greens and blues, the contrasts of shiny hardware on said weathered wood, or rusted hardware on high gloss doors — the mix of old and new.

I love how there are also funny, conceptual details on harware sometimes — like this hand/handle.

Simple street sconces are so elegant…

The colors and layers on this door blew my mind. Imagine if that door was an interior door in your home leading into your kitchen, or a closet…I mean…how beautiful would that be?!?

So much beauty in the address listings too. Isn’t this calligraphy perfect?

Even on things as banal as a sewer grate, I find amazing inspiration. Wouldn’t this be lovely as a shower plate for the drain?

What dresser would look gorgeous with these pulls?

I gotta get my paws on one of the ‘hand’ knockers. And that color green. So perfect isn’t it!?! I think I feel that travel bug creeping up on me again….
