Home Inspiration: Hooks

Friday, April 15, 2011

It's over three years since Balazs and I moved into our current flat and we still don't own a coat stand or wall hooks. So, I'm thinking about making a mismatched hook wall with all different hooks like the one above. Totally digging that cute duck! Dears, what do you think? Where do you hang your coats and umbrellas in your home?

P.S: Hilarious coat stand!

diana this is an awesome idea! because the hooks themselves become beautiful to look at, not just your colorful coats and scarves! :)
p.s. where have you been putting your coats??

Diana Mieczan said...

Marissa, so true! In the entrance part of our flat we have a little chilling area with armchairs and that is where we usually put our coats right now. I really want to change that.

I need a coat stand or hooks, too! I usually put my coat on one of the dining chairs! I love the duck..so cute!

i like the idea of a random hook wall! we just put our coats in the coat closet....not very exciting. random hooks would be much prettier :)

Oh I just love that look! You should definitely do it! I have a hall closet that I keep it all in but I could definitely use some more options :)

Have a great weekend, sweetie! xoxo

I am working on a design for a teenager's dressing room at the moment, which features a whole wall of mismatched hooks! So I would say, Go for it! Great idea!

Oh I just love hooks like that. That wall looks so unique. I agree the hooks themselves are so pretty to look at.

This is such a cute idea. You should totally do it. I used to have a coat tree but we were putting so many coats and jackets on it that it broke. Now I have wall hooks from CB2 and I love them.

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

this is a piece of art in itself! i love it!!!!!

Googlover/keishua said...

you know I like this idea much better than a coat tree or hanging cart. I think it would fun.

amy b.s. said...

i just did something like this in my closet for my bags. however, this is much cuter!

Stephanie said...

I have a coat closet, so hanging coats isn't a problem. But I'm FOREVER losing my key and it would be nice to have a place to hang my dog's leash where it is readily available, instead of digging around in the coat closet for it. Mind you, I've been wanted to hang hooks near the front door for well over a year now - such a simple thing and it still hasn't happened!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Awesome idea!

Another Day Another Outfit said...

What a great idea! I pile so much on a coat rack it almost tips over :) Have a great wknd!!

Courtney Erin said...

Love this idea! We're renting an apartment that has a closed off entry way with enough space for a giant coat rack/shoe cabinet but we're moving soon to a place with no entry way so I need to get creative with coat storage!

well here in the desert we don't need umbrellas or coats but I do need hooks. LOL
We have them all over hanging art,bags,and best of all as art themselves. I love antique and vintage ones just hanging in a collage way without a thing on them.
So I really love this idea of the mix and match hook wall!
GO FOR IT!!

Annie said...

I love this idea! I think you should definitely do it! I'm sure you would find some of the best/most unique hooks out there :)

La Feem said...

Love the hooks! xo

Diana Mieczan said...

Monica, I need to find that duck somewhere. Any ideas where?

Diana Mieczan said...

Great idea, Jillian! Thanks:)

Kayla said...

i love these!

Signe said...

This is just brilliant :)

Krystal said...

I agree a coat stand is so essential, we don't have one either! Maybe I'll find a good one for our new flat!

Sunny & Star said...

I think that is a great idea. It looks lovely.

Emma at Daily Clothes Fix said...

These are great. My coat rack is propped against the wall where it serves no purpose. I really need to put it up.

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

you can never have too many hooks. especially with children. in fact this gorgeous picture reminds me i need more around the house.
as always, you have great inspiration! xoxo
