HOMEDECOR

The Finishing Touch

Door knockers are up there with mulch and outdoor sconces in the list of things that I never imagined I’d even think about, much less get excited about. …I mean, who gets excited about a door knocker?

ME.

BECAUSE MINE IS A PINEAPPLE. (Specifically the pineapple pictured above.)

I’ve been obsessing over Michael Healy’s door knocker designs for a couple of months now – and if you scroll down and take a look at the pieces below, I think the idea of obsessing over a door knocker will make more sense. Our house makeover was so dramatic – and I was so happy with the results – that I just wanted to give it one final touch to make it feel like it’s officially ours. Enter: my pineapple.

P.S. Not all of the below designs are Michael Healy – I threw in a bunch of options at a variety of price ranges for your door knocker-perusing pleasure.

1/10

Bumblebee

Bees are not especially cute, but for some reason this bee is. It’s like the door knocker version of Boo The Pomeranian.

2/10

Hospitality Pineapple

This version of the hospitality pineapple is slightly less glitzy than the version I own – but it’s also less expensive and still super pretty.

3/10

Blue Crab

Crabs freak me out, and I would not want one one hanging on my door. But I can (sort of) understand why somebody might.

4/10

Fauna

The rabbit one, please.

5/10

Dragonfly

This is a door knocker shaped like a bug, and yet I would totally be okay with owning it. It’s just so elegant and pretty.

6/10

Palm Tree

This was a close runner-up to the pineapple for me. Thisclose.

7/10

Temsia

This super-ornate style is whimsical and unique, but a little more classic than the other designs shown here.

8/10

Mushroom

This feels very Alice In Wonderland to me.

9/10

Rabbit Riding Elephant

Everything about this is amazing.

10/10

Labyrinth Pair

Oh my god. Oh my godddddddd.

    I don’t even have a house and I’m excited by most of these,

      RIGHT? Weird.

      • Beffgus

        I might need the Labyrinth ones to just hang on my wall.

        • jordanreid

          I’m seriously considering that as well. Maybe on bathroom doors??? They’re SO GOOD.

  • I really like your pineapple and I nearly bought the Anthropologie pineapple for our own house, but it didn’t quite work with our 1930s-style house and the rest of our front yard’s design. BUT, i’m a big fan of the dragonfly and the bumblebee, so I might order one of those!

      I LOVE the bumblebee. And I love your style, so now I’m dying to see your entryway 🙂

      • The ultimate compliment – thank you! Will snap a pic of whatever we decide to go with in th end. Right now, people just flick our letterbox a few times which always makes me jump!
