One thing that I found a bit tedious during the renovations of our home in London* was the number of times we had to make a decision on the final look of A) radiators: 12 in total, B) door handles and C) doors.
For the loft conversion which was a room built from scratch and therefore more modern than the existing rooms with period features, I wanted a minimalist look meaning no door handle at all on the new fitted cupboards. I searched high and low for a push latch system and was advised to get them from top brand Hafele…Maybe they were not fitted properly but personally, they didn’t work for me so I replaced them all by the system from Ikea which bounces out more than the ones we fitted initially.
In our bedroom, there was already a fantastic fitted wardrobe running from wall to wall which actually looked quite Parisian. So we just painted it in white and fitted these gorgeous leather handles by Dutch company Nu Interieur. While the push latch thing raised a bit of frustration, I couldn’t be happier with these new leather handles.
They were super easy to fit and looked waaaay better than the DIY job I initially considered doing. They have some great options in various colours here and you can see how they look in people’s homes on their Instagram. If you’re interested, you can view the renovations on Instagram under hashtag #bodieandfourenovations and the whole renovations album on Facebook here.
