Well then, let me be the first to say hardware is an important element in the design of a space. For those of you who may be thinking...is she serious?

|A recent find when out shopping with a friend.|
Two years ago, my husband and I went to look at some million+ homes. Not because we are in the market for a mansion, or ever will be, but simply for fun and to take a scenic drive. These particular homes were on a hilltop and the property had spectacular panoramic views. The house was nice. It was not remotely special. All the light fixtures and door hardware were so mediocre and even dismal. I have seen equal or better choices at Lowes and Home Depot. The floor vents, another serious pet peeve of mine, were the typical hideous muddy brown. The choice almost all builders provide.

The doors have matching bronze hinges, but photographing hardware with a basic
