Jewelry for Your Home

 First of all I want to apologize for being MIA.  I have been so busy with work that I haven't been able to post in months.  My last post was at the beginning of the summer when I still had high hopes of taking an actual vacation and getting some relaxation time.  Well, that didn't happen and now it's autumn.  The kids are back at school and another year rolls on.  However my schedule now feels a little bit more manageable and hopefully I will be able to get back to posting regularly.  One of the things I've been busy with is selecting cabinet hardware for one of my projects.  Hardware is like jewelry for the home.  If you get it right, it enhances and completes the look of the architecture.  If you get it wrong...well enough said.

The knobs above and below are from Classic Brass.  I am completely smitten with the knob above.  I love the shape, and it feels as good as it looks. I want to use this for "her" master bath.  I love that Classic Brass has little drawings to go with the photos, so you can really see the proportions.

The knobs below are from Restoration Hardware.  I think these guys have fabulous designs.  And the photography of the items is so beautiful, that always helps sell a product.  I rwant to use the square knob for "his" master bath.  I love that it's masculine and elegant.
