You may not have the courage to paint your front door a glossy fire engine red (or perhaps the homeowner’s association simply wouldn’t approve), but that doesn’t mean a door should go bare. Dress it up with a throwback to the analog era: a door knocker. We love this solid brass dragonfly with its weathered bronze patina. Think of it as jewelry for your home. It will definitely make guests smile, and if you’re lucky it might even act as a scarecrow, frightening off mosquitoes. Hey, you never know.
