In The News: Top Knobs becomes part of classic townhouse restoration

07 14 Traditional Home (TK)_edited-1Interior designer Mary Douglas’ recent restoration project of a 1920s townhouse is featured in the latest issue of Traditional Home magazine and Top Knobs is part of the classic transformation.

Washington D.C. couple Barbara and Bill Sullivan, owners of the stunning townhouse on Embassy Row which Douglas re-decorated, are friends of the designers and knew of her talent and decor style from her flawless track record working with clients.

Douglas has been working to restore the “classic jewel box” for over 20 years and says “It’s really just evolved just as I have.”

The townhouse was build in 1924 by local architect Robert O. Scholz and the Sullivans wanted the place to have as much of a vintage feel and look as possible. Douglas was able to provide that by reintroducing vintage elements such as historic crown moldings, friezes, paneling and wood trim- all things synonymous with historical beauty.

The kitchen includes a silk checkered fabric used for draperies which sets the foundation for the rest of the room’s design.  Top Knobs cabinet hardware was used to highlight the beautiful cabinetry.

“It has a simplicity and directness to it,” says Barbara Sullivan of her new restored home. “And at the end of the day, that’s what I hope people take away with them when they visit us: that they’ve been to a warm, inviting home that offers up a little bit of s surprise in each and every room.”.

“We are looking for nasty kitchens,” the host of the popular DIY network Kitchen Crashers show tells unsuspected families and couples shopping for home repair items.

After hunting down shoppers, Victoria finally comes across an unassuming young married couple Anne and Matt who are in desperate need of a kitchen makeover for the home they share with their small children.

She follows them to their urban farm house to see the kitchen and realizing how outdated it is, returns with a team of builders to redo their kitchen adding Top Knobs hardware to the cabinets.

Over a period of three days, the entire team with the help of the homeowners’ friends and family, tear apart the old kitchen and create a new, stylish one for the entire family.

The Top Knobs Somerset II cabinet hardware collection in oil rubbed bronze, gives added beauty to the kitchen and mixes in very well with the lime colored fresh paint.

Victoria even gets homeowner Anne involved with the cabinet hardware installation by letting her attach the pieces to the cabinets using a handheld drill.

Clean geometrical lines in slab door cabinetry and tile layouts demonstrate the Scandinavian elements. The transitional/ contemporary influences are the color palette and balanced blend of curvilinear lines in lighting and plumbing fixtures. Contrasting neutral colors with a splash of vibrant green apple reflect a crisp clean atmosphere with a warm and inviting feel.

The kitchen features a well laid-out floor plan incorporating all of the client’s spatial and functional needs.  The House 2 Home project created ease of access and functionality through space planning within each workstation section. The project created a place for everything and everything in its place.

Spotlight: Master Bathroom Renovation with Top Knobs Chareau Collection

Months of planning and decision making went into the master bathroom renovation of homeowner and blogger Pamela Rosenberg at BeColorful. The result is a crisp, elegant master bath that she and her husband are sure to enjoy for years to come.

The project used a combination of Top Knobs Chareau Collection Polished Nickel Emerald Pulls and Emerald Knobs. According to Pamela, she chose the Chareau Collection because:

I felt they had enough detail to make them blend with the more traditional elements of our home but that their clean lines and simple design also gave them a bit of a contemporary edge.

Spotlight: Designer Richard Landon and Top Knobs Sanctuary Collection

Richard P. Landon, principal of Richard Landon Design, a design firm located in Bellevue, WA, recently used Top Knobs in a kitchen remodel.  Top Knobs Sanctuary Collection 5″ Linear Pulls in the Tuscan Bronze finish were selected for the project. We caught up with Landon to get all the details, and to find out why he chose Top Knobs!

Tell us a little about the project. Can you give us some background on the kitchen where you used our Sanctuary Collection?

The project is in a development north of Seattle called “Mill Creek.” I remodeled this home for a previous client whose home I’d remodeled 24 years earlier! They had such a positive experience that they looked me up when they sold their two-story home in Everett, WA, and moved to Mill Creek to a rambler [ranch house] to be nearer to their family, as they approached retirement.

Why did you select Top Knobs Sanctuary Collection?

I wanted a pull, not a knob, because handles are easier to grasp than knobs. I also wanted a pull that had varying lengths. That way, I can size the pull to proportionately balance the doors and drawer fronts. I appreciate Top Knobs’ commitment to providing multiple lengths. It makes it much easier to find the right combination of pulls. The lighter shading on the edges of the [Sanctuary Collection Linear] pull echoed the bead at the edge of the cabinet faces. The handle’s rectangular post fit the overall aesthetic of the room’s elements.

Finally, imagine you took the pull and stretched it, while scaling it up. It would strongly resemble the shape of the sliding door cabinet and the shelf that extends to the right.

Take a look!
