I was running through Pinterest the other day and saw this image pop up. So I “saved” it — it’s no longer called “pinning” on Pinterest :-/ — and examined what really drew me in.
I’m such a design nerd, always studying certain features, looking for unique products or the way they are combined with others in a space. I pulled this image up and knew I had to find out where those hooks came from. (I know, you were wondering that too. Right? :-) Told you I was a design nerd!)
The pic was found in this article, and was the home of the former Domino editor in chief, Michelle Adams. I love the easy style of this home and, of course, the blue color used as accents throughout. I pinned some of these images to my “My Style” board on Pinterest.
This hook was linked at the bottom of the article, HERE.
I certainly appreciate good design, but I don’t know many people who can justify a hook for $300. Although, I really love it and think it’s so appropriate for that look. After all, it captured my eye on Pinterest. :-)
It made me think of several projects of mine, where we really wanted just a unique hook, something strong, simple and durable, for towels in the bathroom. Personally, I love hooks in a bathroom. I designed this peg style towel hook rack for one of my clients with a vintage style bathroom, and used hooks for the other bathroom too, in lieu of a towel bar.
Today, I have some cool hooks for you — some simple, some more elaborate, nothing too “kitschy” so you can find the hook of your dreams! Oh, and I found a similar hook to the one in the editor’s home...for much less. :-)

I recently purchased Eddie Ross’ beautiful book, "Modern Mix", and became completely immersed in it one morning at the breakfast table.
There are so many gorgeous images and really helpful how-tos; there’s a lot to learn. It’s not just a pretty book.
Not only does it have his knowledge of how to choose the best flea market finds and then convert them into beautiful pieces to use in your home, but his style of mixing pattern, color, and those beautiful tablescapes he creates is incorporated all within.
Here’s the cool project I found that I want to do someday — that is if I’m ever feeling crafty.
I posted it on Instagram and tagged him too. :-) If I ever get around to painting my two wood flatware boxes, I’ll share the results and let him know how he inspired me.
