things we're looking at: knobs

I am spending an excessively long time thinking about something so very small, that I really only need 2 of, but I'm an obsessive freak, so here we go. I literally spent 2 seconds deciding on the 45 or so pulls I will need for the kitchen (though now I'm beginning to wonder if that was not the best of ideas...) and I am spending weeks fretting over which 2 knobs to commit myself to for the new sink in the bathroom. it's a knob, not a tattoo, so it's not like I can't change it later, but the issue here is that there are way too many that I like. And since I cannot manage to sit still and solidly focus on 2 knobs for the minute it should take me to pick something, I'm dragging it out for ever and ever. So, this is my attempt to focus on the knob at hand (because really, I need to pick a refrigerator, so why not just put that off by more time wasted on a tiny knob?).

Because I'm focusing on fast, easy and available within 10 minutes of my house, the sink will be coming from IKEA. It's pure convenience on my part and a lack of ability to make myself order anything. Too much indecision and hesitation to hit submit on any order. Too hard to go to an actual store and look at what it available, what can be ordered in time. So much easier look online & see if what I want is in stock and then to ask someone to go pick something up at IKEA for me... We will be getting the HEMNES sink cabinet because it has drawers, unlike the pedestal sink I had planned on ordering months ago, and we really need more storage in that tiny space. I like the GODMORGON cabinet better, but I'm worried the high gloss will not hold up well in a tiny powder room frequented by hooligans. I also like that the legs on the HEMNES cabinet will hide a bit more of the tile until it can be dealt with properly. Actual sink & faucet to be determined in the next few days, as we are not all in agreement and I like to at least act like I take the opinions of other into account. My plan is to probably paint the cabinet & absolutely upgrade the knobs, which is where my ridiculous tortured inability to decide on said knobs, for an IKEA cabinet  no less, comes in. The thing is, I just remembered that I have 2 super, huge, shiny, nickel knobs that I bought at Moon River Chattel and that I adore that I need a new home for, but that would mean, no new knobs, so I better just forget that now.

At first I was thinking of big, round marble knobs to go with the marble window sill, but then I started looking at my options and, well, I found too many options. I suppose I have to finalize the paint color first, but some color or some shine, might be what I want in the end.

Nest Studio. These are all gorgeous. They make me want to begin rethinking those kitchen pulls.

Anthropologie. There are so many knobs that I love at Anthropologie, I'm just glad that pulls aren't in the running as well.
