Nautical Door Knocker Inspiration

After you see this nautical door knocker inspiration post, one things for certain, you won’t need to search on Pinterest or Google images for the right coastal door knocker, because I already did that for you (unless you’re looking for ultra tacky door knockers).  I first saw coastal door knockers at my favorite local getaway, Castle Hill Inn, in Newport RI.  Their stunning cottages feature coastal colors and solid wood doors, with VERY noticeable door knockers.  Each door has a different knocker, many of which are below.  It’s tough to choose which one looks best, especially because you want to make sure they’re not too tacky!

  • Wow! Those door knockers are really adorable. They are
    really great. And I guess those door knockers are the perfect way to greet
    every guest that comes knocking your door.
