I put a sweet and spicy Malaysian hot sauce on my quesadillas and tacos. It's called Lingham's. It's awesome! And it can be found at most Asian grocers.

Cabinet Hardware: Put some bling on it!

Cabinet hardware such as knobs and pulls started simply as a way to easily open and close your cabinets. Over the years simple knobs and pulls have evolved into an important part of the overall design and appearance of your space. Here is some hardware that can really give your space some attitude.

The Passport Collection from Top Knobs gets its inspiration from iconic destinations around the world. The Trevi Fountain collection can give an added design element to a traditional space.

Du Verre Hardware Company is known for its one of a kind hardware designs and quality. The Marcel Collection can lend a nice sculptural element to any transitional, contemporary, or modern kitchen.

Du Verre’s Pomegranate Collection would look great with just about any style of d├ęcor.

Need to add a pop of color? Every kitchen needs some color and many times I like to do it in a way that you aren’t stuck with that color forever. Your red cabinets may look fantastic and stylish while in vogue but what about 10 years from now? One way to add a pop of color is in the hardware. The R. Christensen line from Berenson Hardware recently released the Spectrum Collection giving you some great options.
