DIY - Kitchen Cabinet Hardware Part I, Selection

Welcome back to Quince Cottage!
Today we're talking about a design detail that seems small, yet plays an import role in the overall look of your home. In our followup post (aka Part II), we'll be giving you tips for successful installation.
Knobs and pulls come in many sizes, shapes, styles, and materials. The selection can seem overwhelming. We scoured home improvement stores, specialty hardware stores, and the internet, looking for the ones that best suited not only #QuinceCottageStyle but also our budget.
We love the play of sparkle against rustic, so we chose two different knob/pull styles for our kitchen.
Here's the agrarian-industrial pull. The two part construction gives it a really authentic look.

And here's the blingy glass knob from knobdeals(dot)com. They are real glass, which DOES make a difference, both in feel and appearance. They were definitely worth the princely sum of $3.95 each!

We just love this look! It plays really well with our island pendant lights too, don't you think?

Here's a closer look at those beauties.

And here are two views of our kitchen's off-white cabinetry...

Yes, that brick backsplash/wall isn't quite complete, it needs mortaring, but when it's done, we'll blog all about it!

And in case you were missing the doggies, here they are taking a break from supervising the neighborhood...

Thank you for stopping by, we hope you'll come again soon!

Quince Cottage Style mixes old and new, rustic and opulent. 

Our goal is simple - make our new subdivision house look inviting, beautiful,

and as though it wasn't born yesterday.
