Country French Antiques hand #doorknocker
This door knob freaks me out!
To knock at the door. Very common.
One of my favourite elements in classic French design is the graceful iron door knockers depicting Fatima's hand, usually donning a ring on the right hand, a lacy cuff which sometimes have details such as a bracelet or bow. I first discovered this luscious accent piece in the "Country French Antiques" blog, one of my favourite design launchpads when I'm looking to be inspired. -- Eve.
