What a difference the details make. Designer Alice Cramer recommends tucking bits of evergreen onto gift wrapped packages. "I love a simply wrapped gift with a sprig of greenery which adds a personal touch," says Cramer. And in this keeping room, design firm Shayelyn Woodbery Interiors uses that same idea at a table setting, tying a bit of evergreen with a pretty gold bow and bringing out the festive gold utensils to further amplify the holiday mood.
We're not pretending that this stunning white kitchen designed by Lucy Earl, co-owner of the Michigan design firm Jones Keena & Co, is anything other than the highest end, but the pairing of elegant white cabinetry with vintage-inspired hardware is a lesson any homeowner can learn. "When the hardware is as big as this," explains Earl, "it becomes an important detail." The long polished nickel handles add a dramatic and glamorous touch to the kitchen. "We were going for a 1920s icebox look," notes Earl when discussing her choice of cabinet hardware from Christopher Peacock, "you can get a similar feeling by buying the small latch hardware they used in the 1920s," she adds.
