Kristy Wicks Transforms a Dated Kitchen into a California Dream
California Lifestyle Blogger, Kristy Wicks did a mini-renovation on her new Santa Barbara kitchen. With a few coats of paint and brand new hardware she took a dated kitchen and turned it into something bright shiny and new. We loved being part of her vision!
"I've always thought of hardware as the jewelry my home. love way metals add elegance and refinement to kitchen furniture pieces. When I found Modern Matter I was immediately drawn their style. They were actually born out Addison Weeks, a jewelry company. This explains their unique designs and use of semi-precious gems. How gorgeous are they! I knew this was the perfect fit for my kitchen transformation."
"Craving warmer tones in this home I have been gravitating toward brass when it comes to accents. Luckily for me, all of Modern Matter’s pieces are handcrafted from brass so I had a multitude of designs to choose from."
How to choose your hardware
Lane 1.40″ Custom Knob - Isn’t it stunning? It’s so nice that they have 3 different finishes to choose from: Polished Brass, Antique Brass and Polished Nickel. I was so excited to be able to choose my gemstone. I’ve always loved Moonstone and that was one of the nine semi-precious stones they offer."

"I also wanted to order some pulls for the lower cabinets and found a design that incorporates the moonstone, making it the perfect pairing. The Tomlin 4″ Custom Pulls are SO pretty. I’m loving the sleek look. You can also order the pulls in polished nickel & any of the other gemstones that Modern Matter carries. I love that you can use these pulls vertically and horizontally. This gives you so many options. I personally preferred the vertical for the lower cabinets so you can get a straight-on view of the gem."
