"Hardware is no longer something we just stick on at the end."
"When I’m designing these houses, I like to imagine who might be moving in, especially when there are lots of bathrooms and tons of space!” Says Tamara.
Bathroom vanities are such a fun place to throw a pop of color” she adds. Tamara painted the vanity above in a blue on Season 3 home and paired it with the Wright hardware in bone and brass.
Tamara used a soft and neutral pallete on a corner storage cabinet and paired it with the Acrylic Edgewood Pulls.
“I couldn't resist several "wow" statements in the main bathroom - we installed a fantastic DaTile diamond mosaic marble tile with brass inlay at a wainscot height all the way around the bathroom and complimented with brass elements like the Modern Matter pulls on the storage cabinet.” says Tamara.
“You may have caught on by now that I like a good statement hardware where I can get it and I am never let down by a Modern Matter selection!”
