Sally and I were thrilled to learn this morning that we are on the cover of the September/October issue of Design New England. The project was shot back in June by Michael Lee and we’ve been on pins and needles waiting for this issue to come out. As soon as the DNE web link goes live, we will post it. I had previously written about scouting the project here. Work in Progress photographs can be seen on our website. This is a scouting shot Micheal took. One of several he took and we originally submitted to DNE for the story’s consideration.

Everyone have a great weekend!

Cheers,

I was so caught up in getting our last post up, I completely forgot to include the interior and exterior hardware we proposed for the project. We’re looking at both Baldwin and Emtek for interior hardware. Our preference is Baldwin with Emtek as a back up if budget becomes an issue.

We suggested the simpler profiles, such as the lever handle on the bottom right. They would look terrific with cremone bolts on the patio doors. Another option was a simple egg knob and rosette. The third possibility we discussed was a round knob. The bottom center one in Venetian Bronze is growing on me… I like how the face of the knob relates to the rosette on the lever handle just above it. The hinge style is peeking out at you in the upper left hand corner of the image.

 

We’re considering two possible directions for the entry door.

The Versaille from Baldwin.

Or something significantly more rugged in appearance from the Fleur de Lis Collection of Sun Valley Bronze. Their castings are exquisite – all bronze. They use two different base bronzes to achieve a wonderful variety of finishes. The samples I saw were gorgeous!!!

This is the one I am partial to…

 

The next step is to visit the hardware supplier, Needham Lock & Decorative Hardware, to make final selections for pricing.

Almost forgot the teaser… A glimpse of our French Country foyer design. The front door is on the left. The framed opening on the right leads to the family room. From this sketch, I learned that the door frames need to be much simpler to be consistent with the rest of the design vocabulary of the house.

 

Hope you all ahve a wonderful weekend!
