Unlock the Past: Skeleton Keys in Decor

Unlock the Past: Skeleton Keys in Decor

Beautiful and mysterious, skeleton keys are fascinating. Since I've never been quite good at collecting things, I like that the ornate curves of the key are showing up in more home accessories.

Since the Tiffany key charms debuted a few years ago, there's been a renaissance in the vintage key. Although we may use remotes, cards and keypads to open our doors these days, the charm of the skeleton key is undeniable.
