- Wedding: October 2010
During my visit to Dublin, I fell in love with the brightly colored doors and door knockers. I loved the look of an old house yet the door looks fresh and new! I told myself that once we get a house of our own, I’ll replicate the look. Thing is, our house is cottage style with shed dormers … it looks rustic, yet it’ll be newly painted. I’m going for the New England cottage look and don’t know if the Irish door will really go.
I still want to do the brightly colored door, yet I’m undecided if I want an antique-style or classic-syle (brass) knocker.
I know that brass is considered outdated nowerdays but there’s just something about it that I like. Maybe because it’s so traditional? Maybe because I’ll look forward to seeing it age? Maybe because a part of hubby’s last name can be translated to “gold”. As much as I like it, I always think the dark-toned metals are really pretty too – and not as dated.
What do you think? What color are your knockers?
Here’s a couple of my inspirations pics:
