It comes alive with all kinds of treasures, from food, to vintage clothes, silverware and medical illustrations from the eighteen hundreds. I think my favourite little gem is the shop that’s dedicated solely to door knobs. That’s right, the only thing they sell is doorknobs. Every time I walk in and see all the amazing cracked porcelain designs or faceted crystal pieces it inspires me to redecorate my place, switch up the decor, move things around.  That little shop is like a little sanctuary that I come to whenever I feel I’m out of design ideas and need motivation and inspiration. Because they managed to take this one very specific thing and re-imagine it in a thousands of different ways. They were doing 10 years ago and 10 years since they are still going strong.

    You always dress so lovely. The doorknob shop seems so interesting. The photos here have such clarity.
