Ordinarily we're drawn to a mostly modern aesthetic in our home, but we believe there's room for the occasional vintagey touch here and there. We've been looking to create some wall storage in the form of hooks and are being surprisingly drawn to these cast iron finds from Monkey & Squirrel.
Proprietress Jenn rescues old or just old-looking cast iron hooks and hangers at antique and thrift shops, cleans them up and puts her stamp on them with paint. She has new pieces all the time so if you're thinking about a purchase, you can subscribe to her shop's RSS feed to get updates. We had fun looking through her sold items as well. Our one suggestion would be that we'd love to see more brightly colored hooks and hangers (like the red anchor above) which goes even further to making these at home in a modern-styled home.
