hardware roundup: 40 of my favorites

by Grace Bonney

Oh man, I am finishing up this guide at the last minute because I had such a hard time editing things down! Last night we had a loud rain storm in Martha’s Vineyard that kept me up so I was working until two or three in the morning picking out my favorite knobs, pulls, door bell buttons, and escutcheons to put in today’s hardware guide. Years ago I did a hardware roundup for Domino‘s website but I figured it was way past due for a new one. So I hope you’ll enjoy this selection of stylish hardware for your home! Hardware is one of the easiest (and often cheapest) ways to update your room or furniture, so I hope you’ll find something here to inspire an update! In terms of pricing, almost everything here is under $25, but I’ve included a few splurge-worthy items like blown-glass doorknobs and vintage designs if you’re looking to make a real statement with your hardware. Enjoy! xo, grace
