By nature I’m a thinker. I would never survive a round with the infamous Bill O’Reilly strictly for the fact I think in spin zone.
It’s fun to put a new spin on an old way of doing things, and a great opportunity to stretch imaginative design skills. “Lend me your antler and we’ll stylishly hang out together,” said the decorative kitchen towel to the decorative deer head.
Normally a towel bar, is a towel ring, is a towel holder. These utilitarian items are not essential, but they do serve an easier purpose in the kitchens and bathrooms of our homes. I’ve seen towels hanging over doors, hanging out of drawers, hanging out on counter tops, and keeping company with the refrigerator handle. Convenient? Yes. Stylish? No. Let me type that word again- No. With a few dollars, a few screws, a drill, and an eye for the unique you can turn a decorative hooks or door knobs into useful and decorative towel holders.
A pair of spade iron door handles make unique displays.
A different way to go would be incorporating a vintage door knob and back plate set. A single knob could be mounted to a decorative piece of backing wood or decorative ceramic tile.
Don’t let me break your creative process, but let me throw another option into the mix. Drapery holdbacks come in many colors, designs, and finishes. As shown in the picture, drapery holdbacks have more depth, making them more adequate to negotiate thicker hand towels, aprons, pot holders, or oven mitts.
Decorative door knockers come in different sizes, styles, finishes and price points. A gorgeous cast of characters!
I know the ones I’m going to choose!
