Middle Of The Way

Doors. They are the first thing you see upon entering a space. A knock, a ring, and a turn on the knob can place you into a different space and different world. Most American homes place our door knobs to the left or the right, but I personally look forward to creating my own door one day with a knob in the middle. There is something so elegantly classic and refined about having a big round fixture in the middle of the door. I especially like when the knob is low lying and expertly placed.

I wish more homes had this feature. I realize it isn’t practical, but is anything you want for your home ever that necessary??
