“Polished gold faucets look striking in dark and moody spaces, and I always recommend Brizo’s Brilliance Polished Gold finish because it’s designed to maintain its pristine look for life—no corroding, tarnishing or discoloration.”
“Schaub’s MODO collection of cabinet hardware is the perfect product to elevate any piece of furniture or cabinetry. The collection comes in a variety of muted finishes that can be mixed and matched for a custom look.”
“I’m loving the Flatiron collection from Nasco Stone + Tile. Each piece of Flatiron tile delivers unique characteristics in glaze and surface variation that complement their beautiful, rich and moody colors.”
“Cabinets occupy most of the visual space and largely affect the mood of a kitchen. Dark cabinetry can make a space look and feel more intimate, interesting and refined. I’m always inspired by Christopher Peacock’s dark kitchens— they are the epitome of luxury and sophistication.”
“My absolute favorite countertop at the moment is Black Tempal by Caesarstone. Its complex composition of mineral-like layers complemented by a deep, textured finish makes it look warm, organic and incredibly beautiful—a must for a sophisticated and moody space.”
