Gather: Hook Rails

Gather: Hook Rails

Hi friends! It’s Courtney here! When my sister and I were working on our townhouse hallway, we found it surprisingly difficult to find wall hooks in stores with a style we liked. We were especially interested in hooks that were already mounted on a board or a metal plate, because it makes hanging them on drywall so much easier. We eventually found some that we loved (if you saw them in our hallway update here), but it took multiple trips to Home Goods and some patience to wait until we found just what we wanted!

Today I thought I would share some other great hook rails that I found around the web. While I do love “the hunt” of taking your time collecting treasures for the home, there are some cases where it is just easier to find something you like online (in the perfect size), order it, and consider it a gift to yourself when it arrives at your doorstep! :)

(Ps. The first hooks are the ones we recently got for my mom’s hallway. We found them while shopping at the Pottery Barn in Portland and we loved how substantial and sturdy they are!)

So, a few weeks ago we hung hooks in our entry. Impressed? Ha. It isn’t a big Pinterest-worthy reveal, but having a place to hang our stuff when we walk in the door made us feel like we are at home.

Hooks on our plain white walls in our humble front hallway are not as dreamy as a brand new mudroom (complete with planked walls and built-in cubbies just inside our dream Dutch Door), but the hooks serve our needs and help organize our family nearly (well, almost) as well.

Simple things are really all we need.

Planked walls, herringbone floors, charming new lighting, beautiful doors and windows and remodeled mudrooms might be high on our house-loving wish-list (and there’s no shame in being able to add those things) but when you just go get yourself some hooks and hang them on the boring old drywall you are reminded (once again) that it’s really the little things we do (and are grateful for) that will make our house a home.
