"Knob, Knob"... Who's There?


 I've  always felt attracted to extravagant or unusual doors locks / knobs that had a kind of  vintage vibe. I believe it is a sublime, magical way of decorating the exterior and instigator of many assumptions and stimlant of minds always bustling with fanciful ideas, like mine! It has to do with my childhood imagination, with the dazzling story of Alice in Wonderland that has always captivated me with something mythical, divine or metaphysical that surrounds them, locks / knobs that are so practical! I leave you here some highly suggestive examples of what can be adapted to give life to the exterior doors of our homes and that I'll certainly use as inspiration for one or another tale of my  pressing phantasies!


Sempre me senti atraída por fechaduras/ maçanetas extravagantes ou inusitadas em portas com aspeto vintage. Acho que é uma forma de decoração de exteriores sublime, mágica, instigadora de muitas suposições e aguçadora de mentes sempre a fervilhar de ideias fantasistas, como a minha! Tem a ver com o meu imaginário infantil, com a história mirabolante da Alice no País das Maravilhas que sempre me cativou, com qualquer coisa de mítico, divinal ou metafísico que as envolve, logo a elas fechaduras/ maçanetas que são tão práticas! deixo-vos aqui alguns exemplos bastante sugestivos do que pode ser adaptado para dar vida às portas exteriores das nossas casas e que seguramente vou utilizar como inspiração para mais um ou outro conto das minhas efabulações prementes!

  4. Le serrature a parer mio hanno qualcosa di magico... ed è impossibile non pensare ad "Alice nel paese delle meraviglie".

  7. ... in the last shot there is the most meaningful and right comment!
    ... I may add: there is the personality of a home in doors, not a shelter or a house, only but your HOME!!!

  17. I completely agree with your fascination of door knob/locks. There is something philosophical and symbolic about doors in general, and I too have always felt I since of wonder and magic about decrative knobs and locks!
