Here is a close up of our specified-by-an-architect-with-no-children knobs. See those corners? They may look innocent and very 2002, but they could zest a lemon no problem at all. They could also probably shred top security documents. Not to mention pudgy little hands. Not only are they are a danger but their very squareness offends me. I want to replace them.
Quality and interesting hardware, rather like reasonably priced Italian lights, is hard to come by in Australia. I don't know whether to do silver or stainless steel, or white or cream or grey.
This is what I have found. Three possibilities from Anthropologie:
Inexpensive but a little bit hideous kitchen knobs from Ikea
Cattle horn, from Mood Australia. I am not sure if any cattle were harmed making these. Or if by cattle they in fact mean 'cattle':
Superbasic but functional from Budget Handles.
Tell me, oh wise and infinitely stylish readers: where can I find some knobs to make my paranoid maternal fear go away? And what kind of knob would you put on these drawers?
