Wood Drawer Pulls

By Kate Riley February 19, 2019

The more spaces I design, the more I’m convinced every room needs something in it that’s made of wood. It’s the texture and warmth of wood that gives a room depth and character and has become a necessary ingredient in my eyes.

Over the weekend, I linked to a houseboat renovation that I love and on closer inspection I noticed the kitchen’s cabinet pulls were wood. A wood cabinet pull looks especially good on painted cabinetry when it’s tied in to the wood tones in the floor, countertop, or room accents. It struck me that wood cabinet pulls and knobs are a gorgeous alternative to metals and one I won’t overlook in the future.

Weekend Reading

What is it about February that is so dreary? Ugh, I’m so over winter! We’ve had so much rain (and snow) which I admit is good for California but makes for miserable conditions.

I stay positive by remembering people and nature need periods of dormancy for rest because spring is truly just around the corner. :) Hope you all are staying warm amidst these last few weeks of winter!
