As grey and white homes continue to reign, we’ve seen designers take a variety of hardware approaches. First was nickel and chrome hardware, which remains the most widely-used choice and the safest, in our opinion. Chrome blends nicely with your stainless appliances, grey-to-white counters and white-on-white cabinetry and décor. Next, a bolder option of brassy tones emerged. We love the added warmth brass provides to the cool grey tones. Plus, its juxtaposition allows those pieces to really stand out and make a statement. But as of late, a third option is popping up: black hardware. This dark-to-black metal trend feels fresh while still having a nod to classic design. Black feels crisp and clean, through creating a sharper contrast. You can dip a toe into this trend with black pendant lights or sconces, or go full-force with black plumbing, cabinet and door hardware. Here’s a round-up of the dreamiest spaces we’ve seen incorporating this latest lighting trend.

I’m a look your best and you’ll feel better, give it your all or go home type of girl. Who also may or may not suffer from a slight sushi addiction. If you know someone who’s annoyingly obsessed with gorgeous interiors, I’m probably worse. My favorite interior style would def have to be Mid-Century Modern, but I’m still a girly-girl at heart so a dash of glitz makes me swoon. I’m a boy mom and resident of Fort Worth, TX but my heart lives in the Rockies (who doesn’t love Colorado, right?), and if traveling was free you’d never see me again. I believe that you can never fail at something you're passionate about and that challenges are really opportunities if you have the right mindset (so stay positive!).
