I'm not the type of person who looks for products (or anything really) that is exactly like what everyone else has or things that will blend in unnoticed. If I like it and it's popular, oh well, what matters most is my feelings about it, but in general, I'd rather have decor that is different from others'. This works out because most of my family and friends have very different taste. Finding unique items can be hard, but when you find the right thing, it can make a serious statement.
Can you imagine entering a room with this double head snake handle on the door? It suggests there may be even more interesting things inside and says a lot about the personality of the person dwelling there. Someone bold, wild, sexy? The handle, designed by interior designer Lisa Jarvis, is two feet long, so it can be used on a door, or perhaps a larger cabinet. It's not for the faint of heart and I love the idea of having one on my front door (I'd have to have a separate mechanism to lock the door, but I'm not thinking about practicality right now)—what a statement that would make.

I ended up getting a little more serious and introspective this week than I thought I would. So, Friday seems like the perfect time to lighten things up with some cute finds. Bonus: Everything throughout the day will be under $50.
I love this feminine twirled ribbon drawer knob ($8) from Anthropologie. Anthro is always my first stop when I'm looking for decorative hardware, and they never disappoint. I've used several of their knobs for quick updates: I have really glam ones on the two drawers of our crib and I changed out the vanity door knobs in the first floor bathroom of our old house. Swapping out the originals for something with color and personality makes all the difference, even the tiniest, inexpensive changes. The crib drawer knobs are actually very grown up and they look so good, I can't wait to claim them when we get past the young toddler stage, but they still make me happy each time I see them there.
