14 Door Knockers for a Fresh New Look


This time of year it’s cold enough here in the Hudson Valley that the idea of doing anything on the outside of our house sounds laughable. There’s so much snow and ice right now that the only sort of outdoor sprucing up I can do involves whatever can be added or tacked on quickly. But this time of year (grey, snowy, cold) is precisely when I feel like a home could use a little pick-me-up. Holiday decorations have come down and things just feel a little empty. So I decided to collect some of my favorite door knockers as a fun way to add some detail to your home’s exterior without having to break out your heavy coat, gloves and a ladder. These cheerful little decorations are functional and cute and are a nice way to add some visual interest in a snap. A bright pink door doesn’t hurt, either. xo, grace
