What if you could enjoy the allure, richness, and delight of chocolate all year round — without the calories? You can with bronze pieces from our Liberty Hardware Collections. 

Each year on Valentine’s Day, Christmas, and your birthday you look forward to the chocolatey treats you’ll receive — and with good reason. There’s nothing like the joy that a velvety smooth piece of dark chocolate brings. And as the world well knows, chocolate goes with everything. (Fruit, ice cream, and pastries have long been drizzled in it much to widespread delight.)

Liberty Cocoa Bronze Home Hardware - Valentine's

Our bronze pieces don’t just share chocolate’s color and richness, but also its versatility. Choose from venetian bronze (dark chocolate), cocoa bronze (milk chocolate), or bronze with copper highlights (chocolate with caramel, if you will.) 

Liberty Cocoa Bronze Home Hardware - Valentine's Chocolates 

The finishes are as enticing as they are lavish, making any room where a bronze piece is used evoke a sense of romantic charm. You’ll be transported to cobblestone Grecian streets each time you open a cabinet adorned with one of our traditional statutary bronze Capital knobs. Marilyn Monroe would be jealous of your powder room with its sophisticated Addison towel ring, and adding one of our cocoa bronze wall plates will bring instant warmth to any room.

Liberty Cocoa Bronze Home Hardware - Valentine's Gifts

Each time you come across a bronze detail in your home you’ll be filled with the same sense of pleasure you get from a bite of your favorite Hershey’s bar – only this time you’ll be relishing in the chocolately delight of our Liberty hardware collections.

You know which Full House character you’d be. You’ve nailed down your spirit animal. But what would you say if we asked the name of the style that represents the real, inner you?

Try one of these: Cottage. Industrial. Luxe. Vintage. They’re the four new Liberty Style Statement product lines featured exclusively at Home Depot, and one of them will make you feel right at home.

So read on, and when you get to the style that makes your soul sit up and smile, remember: you can find it exclusively at Home Depot!

Cottage

Your favorite day involves sun, sand and a drink in your hand. You’re your friends’ go-to girl when they need to de-stress and remember that life can be simple and fun. Keepin’ it casual — that’s you to a T. And for some reason, you can’t get enough of gold braiding!

If this is you, it’s time to try our Cottage collection. From crisp white ceramic drawer pulls to blue-accented wall hooks, this collection of simple details evokes the gentle pull of the ocean, no matter how far from the sea you may be.

Industrial

Nothing moves you like talking to your grandmother about her days on the farm...but you do it smartphone in hand. You love a good butcher-block counter, drink french press coffee, and cook from copper pots, all to a soundtrack playing from your wireless speakers. Your roots are the reason you have a taste for the now.

Sound familiar? Then try our Industrial collection. It’s the perfect blend of rustic and modern. Pair nickel door knobs with aged wood hooks, and come up with a look that’s as unique as you are.

The Liberty Style Statement Industrial Collection is the perfect blend of rustic and modern for your home.

Luxe

When you were young, you yearned to live in Manhattan, and you never forget Coco Chanel’s famous advice: always take off an accessory before you leave the house. Your baseboards are pristine, your hand towels are ironed, and your boots are black leather. The world is your oyster.

Yes? Yes. Then surround yourself with sophistication. The elegant product line includes details like rich cut glass drawer pulls and Champagne Bronze hook rails with strong-lined, architectural accents. Remember: Everything good goes well with black, including Luxe line hardware.

The Liberty Style Statement Luxe Collection offers sophistication and elegance as the architectural accessory to your home.

Vintage

Your long, flowered scarf gusts up in the September wind as you hurry to the car, latte in hand. The backseat is full of books as usual. You’re on the phone planning a girls’ Friday night, because you’re the fun one, full of ideas. Your secret favorite movie: the Princess Bride.

Put your nature on display with the bright, playful, feminine details in the Vintage hardware collection. From linen-wrapped hook rails to bright aqua knobs, these statement pieces are perfect for eclectic, romantic, cheerful you.

We said in our last blog that there is joy in the details. But why? What makes us gravitate toward the small, beautiful things in life? Do they help us?

Yes, they do.

There is actual brain research proving what you already knew: beautiful things create pleasure. Just like, say, chocolate. Or puppies. Beauty makes us feel good.

That’s why the beautiful details that tie a room together matter: because your home should make you happy. That plain switch plate isn’t doing you any favors, and even SCIENCE says that a prettier one would be better for you! So give yourself permission to fill your life with every lovely thing you can, especially if it’s as affordable and accessible as our hardware.

Here are three small decorative changes that could go a long way toward making you happier:

1. Get some new pillows.  Pick a bright color to liven your spirits, and you’ll be happier every time you walk in your living room.



2. Paint just one wall.  An accent wall can draw the eye toward a color you find soothing, or exciting, or anything else you want to feel.



3. Think about hardware.  You use your light switches dozens of times a day. Why not make a thing you look at so often as nice as it can be? Find a new, beautiful switch plate to accent that accent wall.



Franz Kafka said, “Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.” So keep yourself young. Look for the places around you that could use a beautiful detail or two. If you need help finding them, we’re always here.

You love this time of year. The wreaths on streetlamps; the beautiful Facebook posts about festivals of light the world over; even the endless holiday music at the mall delights you.

Chances are, you’re a Holiday Hero.

Who are Holiday Heroes? Those of us who are here to make sure our families and guests are filled with the spirit of the season every time they walk in the door. We put greenery on all the banisters and Santa hand towels in all the bathrooms. Little elves peek out from our shelves and strands of white lights grace the gutters. In short: we’re ready.

Mostly.

If you still feel there’s a little something missing in your holiday decor, you’ve got time to add a little cheer before your guests arrive. Your efforts in your home will create the perfect holiday environment for your family and friends, bringing comfort and joy to them during the holidays.

Here are some room-by-room ideas for little details that will make a big difference!

First Create an Inviting Kitchen


Have you been waiting for exactly the right opportunity to update your kitchen? This is it. Brighten up with brand new drawer knobs, bright ones that look both seasonal and classic.


After all: if not now, when?

Then Bedazzle the Bathroom

So let’s get a little bit practical for a minute. The best way to prep your bathroom for holiday guests is to organize it. If those wreath-and-bow towels you just pulled out of the linen closet go anywhere, it shouldn’t be on haphazard hooks: it should be on a neatly organized over-the-door towel rack or a sturdy towel bar with subtle decorative finishes.

And now it’s time for the finishing touch. Anyone can put a candle on the counter. But who else but a Holiday Hero would think of more subtle ways to shape a flame?

Try a beautiful mini-lantern instead of a traditional candle, and make the old new again! Or remind yourself of the reason for the season with a sculptured votive candle holder.




Finally...Deck the Hall

You know all those extra coats that are about to adorn your hallway as you host your friends and family? Where are you planning on putting them? A true Holiday Hero has a place for everyone’s outerwear, and we can help you with that. It’s simple to add a few extra hooks, and it shows your guests you care about the little touches to make them feel welcome. Grab up a pair of these porcelain-tipped ones and think of snowflakes, or try some scrollwork that reminds us of Santa’s nice list!

And while you’re at it, what’s on the hallway table to greet your guests? Everyone’s favorite rustic holiday splurge, of course: wooden reindeer. Top them off with a Santa hat and there you go: holiday whimsy, right around the corner, waiting in your home for everyone to enjoy. Now that’s a Holiday Hero.



As a Holiday Hero, it’s your job to bring the best of this season’s joyous feelings to everyone who enters your door. Get started now, and your outer decor will reflect your inner joy by the time the big day rolls around!
