“I like the whimsical pulls used as a detail put here and there to personalize the kitchen. They say I like grapes or I love antique cars and they ll always have a place“ says Morea. “That kind of whimsy works really well at a second home or a vacation home. I have one client in Florida for example who used 125 hardware pieces in one beach house kitchen all starfish and it looked great. Pulls shaped like twigs and leaves work in a mountain retreat kitchen.“ In an ordinary kitchen pulls in fun shapes and colors strike a nice note when used sparingly. “For a personal touch I might use a few on a wine drawer or the doors of a wet bar or maybe one or two on overhead cabinets that aren t real close to the main cabinets.“
In a kitchen with simple style and a mostly white color palette a splash of pattern can add personality. “Help frame a beautiful view with a valance mounted above the window. This ikat-patterned fabric Bansuri in Slate has a rich neutral that adds interest to the solid white cabinets“ says the manufacturer.
