SHIBER Wolfe’s Baldwin Brass Center believes homes should be gladsome, too. Each one has a very particular personality and character. Touches of comfort and beauty are marks of its owners. The next two months are made for adorning residential cabinets and doors with gifts of elegance or classic refine- ment. Shopping for hardware in today’s vast runway of options can be compared to an amazing fashion show, and your cabinets are the models. Ann Marie and Bob Gillinger, Wolfe’s co-owners, have an enchanting array of options to make your home style-ready for the upcoming holidays. And – a few tips and preparation suggestions to ensure fit and appearance perfection. POSSIBILITIES ABOUND “There are so many hardware choices, and the selection process can be daunting,” re- marks Ann Marie. “Homeowners don’t want products that could become outdat- ed. Nor do they wish to install pieces that don’t blend with the overall décor. It’s im- portant to visit the store and walk through our walls of knobs, pulls, locks, latches, and more. Quite often, customers opt for an entirely different look from the style they relished online. The reaction is usu- ally: ‘Wow! I would never have found this piece. I love it!’” There are, however, a few questions and several steps between initial glance and ex- clamation of joy. Customers contemplate finish, style, size, and shape. How do I choose? What will enhance our room? All the more reason to meet with Ann Marie. “I pinpoint design taste,” she notes. “Is the décor modern, rustic, or transitional? Of ut- most importance is ensuring people select items that are pleasing to them.” After myriad responses, Ann Marie pro- vides suggestions, which present a delight- ful menu of options. It’s somewhat like a fantastic adventure filled with treasures and sparkling gems. She thoroughly enjoys helping families find exceptional jewelry for their cabinet drawers and doors. “It is so much fun today, because possibilities abound.” A rumor has been bandied about that brass is passé. “Not so,” insists Ann Ma- rie. “There is a brass renaissance in play. Prepare for Perfection SOON, IT WILL BE THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR. THE WINTER HOLIDAY SEASON HAS A MAGICAL WAY OF BRINGING OUT THE BEST IN PEOPLE.
