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.

    We are constantly working with our clients and contractors to break out of the matchy-matchy box. It is visually interesting and entertaining to the eye to see more than one finish, more than one color. Not saying you should do five. But two or three can be nice and can help add one’s personal stamp on a project.
