They Say Jewelry Is A Girls Best Friend
You want to get a quick pop to any interior? Just change the hardware in the room. The door handles, door hinges, drawer pulls….and voila you have an instant update – jewelry 4 cabinets!. Probably one of the most cost effective updates a home owner can do. But where does one find really great hardware? Some of my favorite resources are Liz’s Antique Hardware in LA or Nanz and Dering Hall online.
Not all metals in a room have to match in color these days. It is more about style. A good designer can blend the metals. But when in doubt at least stay in the matte, brushed or polished finishes. If your house is all brass or gold, an update to nickel might be in order. If you are super fashion forward the golds are making a comeback, but they are different from the golds of before. If you are all oiled bronze, try adding a bit of satin nickel and lightening things up. Experiment and you may just come up with some exceptional results…
