Can't touch this...
Updated: Mar 26
Is anyone else looking at doorknobs with a completely different set of eyes these days? Lately I find myself approaching a door with more caution than I did just a few weeks ago. As my arm stretches out and my hand hovers over the knob, I can literally hear the screeching soundtrack from the Psycho shower scene with Norman Bates! I almost shudder at the thought of what is living on the handle!
As designers, doorknobs are one of those details that we see differently than most. Doorknobs are much like the perfect set of earrings for that little black dress! Depending on your personal style, the earrings may be bold and flashy or simple and classic!
Turn up your speakers and let MC Hammer bang out his ‘U Can’t Touch This!’ (*giggle*) … This is my little attempt to add some humor to your day in this crazy new world we’re living in!
