need ideas for knob finish

Posted by Rose1614 (My Page) on

Hi - I'm stuck on the color of knobs and pulls to get. Here's the color scheme (sorry, no pics at the moment.) White cabinets, sage green walls/white trim, uba tuba granite, white carrara marble subway backsplash, ORB faucet and light fixtures, stainless steel appliances. Orginally thought I would get ORB knobs and pulls, but I'm finding there are two colors of ORB - one that has a hint of red, which is like the faucet, and the other that has a hint of goldish/green (like its tarnished). The one that goes well with the uba tuba granite is the latter (goldish/green), and the one goes with the faucet is the former. So if I get the goldish/green ORB, it won't match the faucet and light fixtures, and if it doesn't match, then maybe it would be OK to get a brushed nickel. Does anyone have any ideas for me? Thanks!

If the ORB doesn't work out, would black be a possibility? I like black hardware with white cabs and maybe it would be a good fit with Uba Tuba. Black is a great accent color with green. Google some images and see what you think.

I would say try satin nickel with your selections. Colonial has a selection of knobs where you can choose 2 finishes on one knob - ie ORB on the outer part, satin nickel on the face of the know. A great way to pull everything together...
