It DOESN’T have to be all matchy-matchy

So often clients feel like their door hardware must match their cabinet hardware which must match their faucets which must match their appliances. We say NONSENSE!! That’s boring! And where is YOUR personality in all of that? Exercise your sense of style by mixing up the finishes! Even though I wrote this post a couple of years ago, I have noticed that we’re not the only ones who are writing about this. Click on these two links below to see some Houzz articles on this design opportunity. Even the experts are saying “Mix finishes and have some fun!”

New Catalano Vanity Display 48″

Written by Julia Bettencourt. Posted in Vanities, Videos

CatalanoDisplay (If you click on the words “Catalano Display” you will see a little video of it.) YAY!! Look at our pretty new Catalano display. As you see it, it is 48″ wide with TWO bowls which is a rarity in a 48″ vanity. This size and finish is stocked in the United States so we should be able to have it in about 3 weeks. The finish is easy to clean and maintain. And it is designed in Italy. It’s clean and modern in style but with a not so modern faucet, it could be very transitional. CatalanoVanityPic2 CatalanoVanityPic1 These are some of the other finishes that Catalano offers. Some of them are high gloss which should be so easy to clean. The others are real wood veneers. Not all of these items are stocked in the USA so some of them may have extended lead times. Clearly I could use some practice taking photos with my phone since some of these are kind of blurry. Feel free to come in and see these finishes in person. CatalanoFinishes2 CatalanoFinishes1 CatalanoFinishes5 CatalanoFinishes4 CatalanoFinishes3 To see more of the Catalano line, click HERE
