the look for less

I get a lot of emails and IG questions about this powder room project...

With new clients
one of the first things we discuss is budget.
I know.
I hate that b word too.
But if you're like me
there's no money tree growing in our backyard.
Don't get me wrong...
some things are worth the splurge -
big items you don't replace often like sofas and beds
or an item you're super in love with
and nothing else will do.
Keeping an eye on the bottom line 
I work with my clients to balance the budget
by finding "the look for less" when appropriate.

For this project my client knew she wanted modern, brass fixtures.
Since this is the only bathroom on the first floor
I knew it would be one of the most visited rooms in the house
With two little ones we needed something durable
and also easy for them to turn off and on.
To me a one handle lever was a no-brainer.
My client agreed.
Kohler's Purist collection met all our needs...
quality, modern lines and a huge variety of finishes.

For the look of brass we chose their
At nearly $600 I consider it a splurge.
In case that's not in your budget
here's a lookalike for less...

Although Delta's "champagne bronze" finish 
is not as bright and "vibrant" as Kohler's 
at half the price 
I think its brilliant for balancing some budgets.
Wouldn't you agree?
