In the beginning stages of the designing our master bathroom (all the way back in June!), I shared an inspiration photo of a bathroom with a glass shower door, paired with brass hinges and a brass knob *gasp.* Not a handle or pull–a knob on the glass shower door. I was so inspired and I knew it was something I wanted for our bathroom.
Back in November, I consulted our custom glass company that was going to do our shower door, and I brought up that I really wanted a brass knob on the door. He said it was doable but all of the options he showed me felt too small. Less than 2 inches was just not going to bring the vision I had in my mind to life. I was feeling a little defeated (and a little annoying–do you ever feel annoying when someone is trying to help you but it’s just not what you had in mind?) Then I asked him. “What if we used, like,… a dummy doorknob? Would it be possible to fabricate that with the glass?”
“I don’t see why not.” I’m sorry–WHAT! First of all, that’s a phrase we love hearing and secondly, what a simple solution! So–I’m here to announce to all of you–you can have a dummy doorknob fabricated on a glass shower door! The possibilities!
I found the perfect dummy knob (dummy knobs don’t turn or lockH) on Rejuvenation. *purchased 2 instantly.* Once they came in, our fabricator matched the finish with hinges we chose from his selection and once the door was delivered and installed, it was as if I was seeing a vision become a reality. There’s just not a better feeling when designing anything custom for your home.
Every detail that comes together in our bathroom brings us closer and closer to the grand finale, and gives me further clarity on the other finishes we’ve been a bit stumped on. This knob was definitely a missing piece.
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
