Out of all the decisions we’ve had to make for our kitchen remodel, I think the hardware was the easiest. I’ve known about the quality of Rocky Mountain Hardware for some time now, and always had my eye on them for this project. So, I was ecstatic when they agreed to sponsor these stunning pulls and knobs for our kitchen!!
And when we put them into place, well… they were even better than I imagined. You can tell by the weight of these bronze pieces that they are incredibly high quality. The brushed surface gives them a slightly aged look, which is what we were going for. While I debated between a few styles, ultimately the simplicity of the ‘rail’ pulls won me over for the majority of the kitchen.These are some of the other styles we were considering. Since we were going for ‘modern farmhouse’ I wanted the lines to be simple, but the look to feel worn. Another big decision was to light or dark. Eventually, after seeing the plans and how much cabinetry we were going to have… I opted for ‘silicon bronze brushed’ (the material is bronze, actually, but the finish looks like brass) to keep things lighter in the space. Honestly, I think any of them would have been a win! It just would’ve changed the feel a bit.
Once we decided on the main pulls, I chose a few accents.
We created this piece to feel like a built-in that looked more original to the house, so I opted for the bin pulls on those narrow drawers (where all my linens will go!), and they are my favorite. Putting them in this one spot made this piece feel more special, and scale-wise they are perfect. Speaking of scale, you can see that the rail pulls came in variety of sizes, so we did longer ones on the upper cabinets, and the same smaller size for the rest of the cabinets and drawers.
For the smaller drawers in the kitchen, I opted for the luna cabinet knobs that are perfect for these petite sliders!
These are the built-ins in the breakfast nook (if you’re getting confused on the layout, you can refer back to this post!). The right side is all pantry, but the middle has doors that slide open and back into the cabinets, which is where the microwave will go! I can’t tell you how much of a difference it made having the hardware put on these solid white pieces – adding that little detail makes these pieces feel so much more finished!
And here’s where I’m at with the breakfast nook scheme! (Please disregard the paper protecting our floors!) You may have seen it on the coco kelley instagram already, but I thought I’d post it here too. There was an overwhelmingly supportive response to the muted colors we’re bringing in here, and I’m thrilled you guys are liking where it’s heading!
The print is one we already had and is available at Minted. The pillows are one of a kind from Etsy and travels, except the lumbar one which is from Pinecone Hill. The rug I found at a local antique mall, and I instantly fell in love with its subtle shades of blue and mauve… I thought I would put it in our bedroom, but now I’m pretty sure it’ll end up here! What do you think? And how much are you loving the hardware?? Now that it’s up our kitchen feels one step closer to completion!
