Luxe Decor: Door Knockers

Remember my post last week on all of the surprising finds at Home Depot?! Well in those Luxe Picks I had included this brass shell door knocker:
It just so happens that I'm in the market for a new door knocker, as one of my poor little starfish's arms got chipped while a Christmas wreath took its place.
These beachy door knockers complement our Key West style home so well! And the beautiful brass and nickel finishes give a very luxe look, when so often beachy decor=cheesy decor.  I just may go with the nickel version of the scalloped shell as it pairs well with the rest of our hardware.

Whether you go for a coastal look, traditonal, whisimcal or a classic ring, door knockers are an accessory for your entry not to be overlooked! After all, it's all about the first impression, isn't it?!
(A brightly colored door doesn't hurt either)

Do tell, which door knocker fits your home's style?

Luxe Lifestyle: Favorite New Purchase: Pagoda Etagere

Ok, so a bit of a technicality.  This week's Favorite New Purchase isn't exactly a new purchase, but it is newly refinished. 
A few months ago (err, maybe it's been a year? where has the time gone?!) I had purchased a rattan pagoda etagere from Palm Beach Home Collection to be used in our home office.  But it didn't take long before the office became Hank's nursery! Storage is such a necessity no matter how much you've mastered non-hoarding skills.  Mine as well make storage beautiful with super chic chinoiserie-inspired shelving!

So my etagere sat in our garage until this past weekend when motivation struck to give it a good lacquer finish and bring it back inside.


 I love how the etagere turned out! Though sometimes acessorizing can be a daunting task...but beautiful coral does the trick!

Some similar etageres from our other favorite local haunts!
