One of the easiest and most budget-friendly ways to update a space is to change hardware. This is an efficient design trick that can transform any room, and it can literally start at the front door. A suggestion from Nostalgic Warehouse is to stay in tune with the latest trends in hardware – from colours and finishes to period themes and inspirations. The company’s design experts have identified five of the most popular styles that are currently in high demand:
Art Deco. Dating to the 1920s, Art Deco is perfect for contemporary homes. This design genre is notable for a bold opulence that is elegant, functional and modern. Featuring geometric shapes, Art Deco motifs often include vertical lines, angular details, and polished finishes. The Deco Long Plate by Nostalgic Warehouse is perfect for this style. Pair it with a matching Deco Knob or add extra flair with the Fleur Lever.
Bohemian/Eclectic. Known affectionately as “Boho” style, this in-demand look is about bold colours and patterns, which can be mixed. This eclectic style creates a vintage feel that is cozy and inviting. The opposite of modern minimalism, a Bohemian space has lots of “stuff ” and no design rules. When it comes to hardware, pair various styles and materials to create a custom look. For example, the Craftsman Long Plate with Black Porcelain Knob create an eclectic richness when paired. We also love the New York Long Plate with Oval Fluted Crystal Knob.
Bold Colours. Today’s colour palettes feature bold hues. Nostalgic Warehouse provides crystal knobs in dramatic shades of blue, green, pink and black. Create additional contrast with a choice of flawless finishes in pewter, chrome, brass and more. The Classic Rosette with Pink Crystal Knob is a great example of using hardware to add a splash of colour. Another option is the Studio Short Plate with Waldorf Cobalt Crystal Knob.
French Country Farmhouse. Everyone loves the rustic, Old-World look of French country farmhouse design. Its comfortable-yet-chic vibe is achieved through natural materials and textures, elegant silhouettes, and warm, welcoming colours. This popular trend is reflected in styles from Nostalgic Warehouse that include the Cottage Short Plate with White Porcelain Knob and the Prairie Long Plate with New York Knob.
Vintage Revival. The vintage revival trend pays tribute to the past while incorporating a hint of today. The look is classic and elegant – a wonderful choice for a vintage-inspired decor. Nostalgic Warehouse is known for its heirloom-style hardware and authentic detailing. This trend is captured perfectly by the company’s Egg & Dart Long Plate with Crystal Knob, or the Victorian Long Plate with Victorian Knob.
