Although I do have my own decor philosophy and signature aesthetic, it is not my goal to walk around enforcing a bunch of decorating rules. Mainly because every time I think that I have decided upon a rule that I will indefinintely follow, a beautiful contradiction will immediately present itself. Such is life, right? Like the time I decided that all hardware finishes should match and spent an entire weekend spray painting door knobs and cabinet pulls just to fall in love with an antique brass door knob the very next day. It’s silly. Besides, why on earth should a girl have to decide between two fabulous things? silver or gold? Diamonds or rubies? Please. Have them both!
My general rule is this: If you love it, make it work!
The point is to have a home filled with such interesting, inspiring, and beautiful things that no one will ever notice the finish of your door knobs. Unless you want them to…in that case, we go bold or we go home!
