Back in Spring (where has the time gone?!) I needed to do a final shot of an apron I had made for this post. My kitchen is relatively dull, as it’s a new-build flat, so it didn’t look particularly aesthetically pleasing when I hung it in there. So, I decided to photograph it on some vintage school hooks that are in our spare room for guests to hang their clothes. I hung some kitchenalia on the hooks too and the end result was rather pleasing:
I was then lucky enough to go to designer Lisa Levis’s house for a nose around and to interview her for the blog. You can read that interview and see all the beautiful photographs of Lisa’s home here. In Lisa’s kitchen I saw some very similar hooks to my own:
I then caught a glimpse of Sarah Moore’s home and there were more very similar vintage hooks in her kitchen:
All these vintage hooks got me thinking that this could be an easy way of adding character to a kitchen. Plus, hooks are so practical as they take up so little space, yet you can store a lot on them. I had a nose around Pinterest and found another few examples for inspiration:
All in all, I’m sold on the idea. Vintage hooks for the kitchen is added to my list of projects x
P.S. My little apron was featured in Issue 2 of Sew Liberty this month. Take a look here (p.8).
i love hooks! i have a real thing about hooks. i love antique coat hooks and ultra modern ones. ii’m sounding weird, ha!
Not weird at all – I’m the same. I just love a hook! X
This is really styling, I could get into this! Great idea… You’re full of them!
