Project 52: Signs

Door to the Past

I’ve always been drawn to old, historic houses. I love their aura of history and charm. I’m lucky to live on the second floor of a home that was built in the 1800s, complete with tall ceilings, original fireplaces, radiators and transom windows.

I most appreciate all of the design intricacies within my apartment. Recently, I noticed that the metal plate on my bathroom door has the most beautiful pattern. I checked the other doors in my apartment but none of them had a decorative plate. Whether they were painted over or replaced, I may never know; but, I find this sign from the past to be beautiful in so many ways. It’s inspiring that someone spent extra time to made an object that is so often overlooked artistic. These adornments add so much to the character and soul of the house. I hope to discover more hidden treasures in the future.
