One of the little quirks of our house is that the doorknob on our front door is positioned on the center of the door.
The Asian style escutcheon was manufactured by Schlage and is original to the house. The exterior black and red color scheme is also original to the exterior of the house. Although the house has been repainted many times over the last 55 years, the color scheme has always remained the same.Here's how the center doorknob looks from the inside. If this photo looks familiar, it's because I've used it before in my post about my inability to keep a houseplant alive.
For a sad update to that post, here is the current condition of the plant. I still haven't found a fake plant for a replacement.
