Playin' Hookie

Summer is the perfect time to play hookie! How else will you hang up all those beach towels, straw handbags and for all you Austen-ite those flowers and herbs you're drying?

Here is a selecting of fun hooks I found on Etsy- the best place for handmade and one of a kind items... then again I am rather partial having a few stores there myself!

Ship Anchor Wall Hook /Nautical Cast Iron Hook / Coastal Decor /Metal wall hook /Bathroom hook / Fixture
This gem is from the Shabby Shak, and perfect for the beach house, boy's bedroom, or sun porch!
Large Antler Wall Rack in Shabby Creamy White / Faux Taxidermy
I love the humor of an antler hook! This set, from the door stop, is actually cast iron, not real antlers.

NEW Groovy Wave Hook combo
Though silverware as hooks are not a new idea, these are particularly well done! From jjevensen, this set comes if a variety of silverware patterns!

Blacksmith handmade iron wall hook with handmade square nail
Honoring the artistry of the blacksmith, this hand forged hook from SemiosisForge is only $15!

As you can see, hooks can make a statement whether something is on them, or not! They can express a theme like lodge style with antler hooks, or nautical with the anchor hook, without being overt. Rooms are best when they are layered, like people. A cottage chic room, can also be a white room and a nautical room or a cottage chic girls lodge! The forks can be cottage chic kitchen, cottage chic folk art dining room. Or, they can add the whimsy to a formal room with out loosing the formality, since they are silver. Once you have the bog picture of a space with wall colors and furnishings, then you can look to specifically chosen details that relate to the big picture, but add a secondary and tertiaries layer, dare I say theme, to a space.
