Defining Design: Leading Interior Design Genres of 2022 and Complementing Decorative Hardware from Top Knobs

Interior Design – /in-te-ri-or de-sign/: the art or process of planning the aesthetic and execution of architectural interiors and spaces.

Design comes in all shapes, sizes and formats. From neutral color palettes to modular furniture and avant-garde accessories, each component of a room should come together in complete harmony to craft a space to be relished in.

Whether you’re remodeling a bathroom, refreshing a kitchen or redecorating an entire home, your abode should reflect you and your taste, and when it comes to homewares and fixtures, we believe you should have the same opportunity to express yourself.

Read on as we break down today’s leading interior genres and coordinating Top Knobs decorative hardware offerings to help you craft a look that speaks to you and your home:

Traditional

One of the most popular and enduring design schemes, traditional interiors are evocative of classic European decor. Rich wood tones, prominent architectural details, understated finishes and elegant furnishings often accompany spaces rooted in traditionalism.

For traditional interiors, we recommend knobs and pulls from our Chareau® collection. The subtle details and soft silhouettes that enhance each series in the collection invite timeless charm and classic perfection to all households.

Minimalism

One of the most considered modern styles, minimalism can often be mistaken as cold and severe. The key to achieving this aesthetical approach and crafting a serene environment is to focus on simplicity, refinement and functionality. Minimalist interiors are defined by a soft neutral palette, limited ornamentation and visual symmetry.

Our tab pulls including offerings from the Europa, Minetta and Modern Metro series complements minimalist environments. Each pull seamlessly blends into the cabinetry and furniture they adorn, for an uncompromised look.

Transitional

Perhaps one of our favorite interior design categories, transitional spaces offer plenty of interest and prevent rooms from leaning in the direction of a particular style. The best transitional settings boast a balance of traditional furnishings with modern elements while establishing a warm and welcoming environment.

Our Transcend collection is the very essence of transitional design. The combination of easy shapes, refined features and broad finish options makes this collection an effortless match to marry multiple trends.

Modern Farmhouse

Today’s take on modern farmhouse is rooted in rustic charm peppered with opulent and technical elements. Striking just the right ratio of countryside chic and sophistication, modern farmhouse interiors emphasize casual living with contemporary sensibility.

The Channing series, featured in our Barrington collection encompasses the heart and soul of modern farmhouse flair. Each knob, pull and cup pull in this series has been crafted to evoke feelings of comfortability and familiarity to make each room instantly feel like home.

Mid-Century Modern

The retro whimsy and flamboyant nuances of Mid-Century Modern details have experienced a resurgence in recent years. The beloved round edges, smooth surfaces and organic movements of 1950s accessories have been updated for today’s young homeowners who have an appreciation for vintage details.

Serving as an homage to this iconic design movement, our Lynwood collection encapsulates the electric nature of the mid 20th century.  Each piece in this complete line of knobs, pulls, cup pulls, and backplates feature a unique look produced during this time.

Industrial

As the name implies, Industrial interiors conjure an urban atmosphere, with exposed building materials and factory-like elements outfitting the space. Open floor plans with strategically placed furniture to define each “room” commonly accompany industrial-style homes, with a muted or gray-scale color scheme and minimalistic accessories to finish the look.

Versatile in form and function, our Asbury collection is the ideal accouterment for industrial dwellings. Series including Bit, Charlotte and Arendal offer lean physiques with mechanical detailing from exposed faux screws to two-toned metallic finishes.

Hidden Gems: 6 Spaces to Enhance with Decorative Hardware

When incorporating decorative hardware into the home, two rooms instantly come to mind, the kitchen and bath. Traditionally, knobs and pulls were placed on cabinetry in these spaces as a finishing touch that adds personality and style to the room.

Today, we’re going to share a little secret about decorative hardware that will cast an alluring impact on the entire home…

Are you ready?

Decorative hardware can be installed in every room!

The right knobs and pulls have the power to transform any room or piece of furniture into a custom creation.

Step out of your kitchen and bath comfort zones and read on for inspiration as we share six spaces to enhance with decorative hardware.

Glamorized Closets

Replicate your favorite clothing store by spicing up your closet.

If space allows, add in a charming dresser embellished with jewelry-inspired knobs and pulls. The Crystal collection is perfect for closets. Place a clothing rack at its side to make outfit curation a breeze.

If short on space, install custom shelves to neatly house apparel. Install glamourous hooks from the Ryland collection to display accessories.

Soothing Entertainment Settings

Movie nights are about to become a bit more dramatic.

As the focal point of most living rooms, the entertainment console demands attention. Give it the facelift it deserves by dressing it with decorative pieces that won’t go unnoticed.

Warm bronze tones are a great option for this room. The Honey Bronze finish establishes a calming vibe for those cozy nights in.

Dynamic Dining Rooms

Impress the guests at your next dinner party by serving more than a delicious meal. Dazzle them by decorating the room with statement-making hardware.

From buffet tables and credenzas to china cabinets, each piece of furniture beacons its own set of knobs and pulls that will transform it into a conversation piece.

The Brixton series works like magic in this room. The captivating details found on the knobs and pulls effortlessly draw the eyes in.

Enchanting Entryways

The foyer is the first glimpse guests have of your home.

Leave a lasting impression on each person who walks through the door by designing an inviting space. Set the tone with a series of built-ins where visitors can take a seat, remove their coat or shoes and make themselves comfortable in your home.

Enhance this space even more by adding functional storage accessorized by stylish and modern Flat Black pulls. This will provide guests with a safe space to store their belongings.

Chef Worthy Pantries

The pantry is the perfect area to be adventurous and experiment with design.

Although hidden, the pantry is an extension of the kitchen and arguably one of the most used sections of this part of the home. As a place reserved for meal prepping, it should spark creativity and flavor and serve as an inspiration for recipes.

In this room, opt for a daring cabinet color, one that you’ve always wanted to try, then take the look one step further with contrasting knobs or pulls for added interest.

Elevated Nooks

Be it the end of a hallway, the unused side of a kitchen or a large blank wall, there’s always an unused section of the home begging for some TLC.

Whether you plan for a small workspace, reading corner or crafting zone, transforming this unused space into a beloved spot is simple.

Start with a fresh coat of paint to define the space, personalize with wall decor and add in a piece of furniture that fits your needs. Accessorize the space even further by upgrading the hardware on your furniture selection. The Hopewell pulls are sure to make a statement that will complete your space.

Q & A with Interior Designer Ariana Lovato of Honeycomb Home and Design

California based Interior Designer Ariana Lovato has made a big name for herself in the design community. As Owner and Principal of Honeycomb Home Design, she has always had a spark for design and all things creative. Recently named an NKBA 30 under 30 during this year’s KBIS she has a keen understanding of kitchen and bath design and brings a distinguished edge to interior spaces.

Ariana’s talents were on full display in a kitchen renovation that was selected as an honorable mention in Top Knobs’ inaugural Design Board Contest. This dreamy farmhouse kitchen was carefully crafted with love after a fire had destroyed the owner’s original home. We had the opportunity to delve into Ariana’s design decisions, creative inspirations and much more during a special Design Board Member Spotlight Q & A.

TK: Tell us about the kitchen and how it fulfilled your client’s plans for their home.

AL: This was a whole house re-build. We completely redesigned this home from the ground up due to a devastating house fire. My clients are elderly so I worked mostly with their daughter who lives in Houston, TX. We corresponded mostly via Zoom and email to make their decisions. We designed the single level home to accommodate their large family with a big open floor plan, a large kitchen island and butler’s pantry, 4 bedrooms, 4 baths and a spacious master bath.

TK: Which Top Knobs hardware did you use for this project?

AL: I used the Ascendra pulls and knobs in Sable in the kitchen and also in Brushed Nickel in the Master Bath.

TK: Tell us what made you choose Top Knobs hardware for this design?

AL: We wanted a sturdy piece of hardware but did not want to compromise on style. I found the Ascendra collection and I fell in love! The Sable finish was the perfect contrast to the white cabinetry in the kitchen. We used the brushed nickel in the master bath against the stained wood cabinetry.

TK: Did you run into any challenges with this specific project?

AL: The plans that my client had drawn up by their previous architect yielded a much more craftsman style home. My client was wanting more of a modern farmhouse style, so we had to make some changes to the exterior and interior as we went. That was challenging, but I think we did a good job of incorporating the touches they were looking for.

TK: We’d love to know more about you and your design firm can you tell us more about your background?

AL: My name is Ariana Lovato, Owner and Principal Designer of Honeycomb Home Design. Honeycomb Home Design is a full-service Interior Design firm located in Pismo Beach, CA. I grew up on the coast and moved to Los Angeles to attend FIDM for Interior Design after high school. I moved back home upon graduating, earning a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from the University of LaVerne, and worked for designers, builders and even in the tech world for a start-up company before branching out on my own in 2016.  I had been moonlighting for a couple years and had a small savings and a whole lot of determination. Design has always been a passion of mine and I love working with my clients and making them happy.  Our design aesthetic is based upon our client’s tastes, but we always try to streamline and modernize finishes to highlight architectural details. Now, we have a team of 3 designers and usually work on about 15-18 projects at one time.

TK: Where do you turn to for new ideas and inspiration?

From other designers. I also love Kelly Wearstler, Vanessa DeLeon and House of Bohn’s work.  I also find inspiration from travel. Earlier this year my trip to Malaga, Spain fueled my passion for handmade tiles!

TK: Which design trends are you most excited about in 2020?

AL: Terrazzo!! It is everywhere right now and I am not mad about it!

TK: What’s the best interior design lesson you have learned?

Pay attention to scale. It’s one of the fundamentals of design but it is so important especially when you are playing with patterns. Also, double-check your measurements. That was not a fun lesson to learn but it had to happen. From a business perspective, I would suggest to hire out the things you are NOT good at (i.e. bookkeeping), but I encourage everyone to know how to read a balance sheet and a profit and loss sheet so they can do their own check-ins.

How to Expertly Mix Metals in the Home

There are many tried and true rules for home décor that most abide, but one thing that isn’t so far fetched is the idea to mix and match metals where you reside.

Black, brass, chrome, nickel and bronze, with so many options to choose, picking the right metal for your home can be a difficult process. Rather than dwelling on the right metallic finish for your space, consider mixing them up! Designers and homeowners alike are opting for this contrasting trend to add interest and depth for a one-of-a-kind look.

For most, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s a place for gathering and entertaining, therefore thoughtful space planning is required to ensure a kitchen is both inviting and highly functional. When incorporating mixed metals in the kitchen, we recommend beginning with a neutral color pallet. The key to mixing metals in the kitchen is layering. To achieve this look, divide your space into horizontal or vertical sections and select a different metal for each area.

The living room is where designers and homeowners become creative and let their personal style shine. We suggest a bold look by coordinating the contrasting metals with different accessories and elements in the same finishes to emphasize the daring look and draw attention to the design details.

Mixing metals can be a fun experiment in the bedroom but it does require some planning and structure. Bedrooms are a place for relaxation and their design should never be overwhelming. We advise choosing a dominant metal for your furniture then introducing a second metal subtly through accessories and accent pieces. We recommend incorporating no more than two metals in the bedroom for a cohesive look.

Bathrooms used to be a space reserved for chrome and nickel finishes. With brass and bronze leading the finish trend this year, the bathroom has become the ideal spot to harmonize warm and cool tones. This look requires a thoughtful balance that shifts away from the traditional matchy look. Try opting for a cool silver tone as the base for your plumbing and cabinetry hardware and pairing it with warm bronze accents and bath accessories for a style will co-exist.
