Seal it with a keys

September 28, 2010

Ooh that was a bad pun, but I couldn’t resist. I love keys, especially old ones. When I was little, my mom gave me two keys in the shape of hearts, and I always loved them. (I don’t think they unlocked anything, but they were cool, especially to a seven-year-old.) Now, I have tons of more boring and functional keys… keys to our house, to my parents’ house, to my in-laws’ house, to the beach condo, to my dad’s office, to that old padlock from a former storage unit… and honestly, to places that I just don’t remember where they unlock. But keys have a unique way of symbolizing power… the more keys you have, the more important you seem. Weren’t high school janitors just a little bit cool because of that huge ring of keys they carried around?

via design*sponge… how cool would this be in your house??

Beyond the neat old ones above, in general, standard metal keys are pretty ugly. I mean, really, those Schlage people couldn’t be more creative? That’s why when I found this site, I was thrilled! I can’t remember how I was directed to this site, but these keys from Strat Key Designer are way cooler than your run-of-the-mill ugly brass metal. And, they are theme oriented!
