Remi Cook started her Instagram account, Home is Here, to motivate others to make their current home their dream home. She and her husband are updating their current house, adding extra square footage to create a playroom for their children, and remodeling guest and primary bathrooms. They have also completed more specific projects like wallpapering their girls' room, designing the nursery, adding a feature wall in the primary bedroom, and changing light fixtures and door knobs.
When Remi came across Grandeur on Instagram, she hoped to work with the brand. She felt everything we offer is stunning, making it a tough decision on which hardware to choose for this part of her home. Ultimately, she fell in love with the Carre short plate with Soleil knob in Satin Nickel.
For this project, Remi painted the doors light grey before installing the new hardware. She said painting and hardware installation took about three hours; however, installing the four knobs took only 45 minutes. Since they plan to move in the future, they will put the old knobs back on so they can bring the Grandeur knobs to their new house. That's some door hardware dedication!
Remi describes her style as very minimal, with a coastal feel. She keeps the wood the same color throughout the bright and airy home and uses blues and greens when looking for a pop of color.
She recommends that readers who wish to do an extensive remodel project ensure they have the time. She notes, "Remodeling is very time-consuming, but if you have the motivation to do it, anything is possible. Take your time, and don't rush the process."
Her words of encouragement for readers wishing to make a small transformation in their home are, "Absolutely anyone can do this! If you've never picked up a power tool, just start! The more you do, the more your confidence will grow, and so will your skills."
When asked if she had any closing words for this interview, Remi said, "I'd recommend Grandeur to anyone looking for hardware. The products I received were high quality and unlike anything I've seen. We couldn't love them more and feel so thankful to have worked with this company!"
We're thankful for your partnership, Remi!
