Tight-grained black granite countertops flanking the stove. Glossy white subway tile backsplash that extends to the ceiling. Herringbone-patterned subway tile backsplash above the stove. Designer secret. “Details,” Hajos says. “We are always thinking about details in a room. No matter what your budget is on a project, you have to learn to pick your battles. So we like to use some standard materials but then spend a good chunk of money on certain details to make the project pop. Take the hammered-copper sink, for example. This is not an inexpensive item but it does give a wow element to the room. It’s a conversation piece and gets people talking.”Hammered-copper sink, 36 inches: Sinkology; antique brass faucet and pot filler and Provence vent hood: Signature Hardware; custom cabinets and walnut shelving: Mark Cedar Designs; Artistry series appliances: GE; concrete-overlay flooring: Concrete by Design; windows and doors: Milgard Windows & DoorsSee more of this home | Browse copper sinks
