A budget-savvy stay-at-home mom creates a comfy, casual kitchen that's truly the heart of her home.

Since she bought it on sale, she was able to splurge on all-nickel Rohl hardware, which she compares to "pieces of jewelry. These small details make a lot of difference every day," she observes, "as you touch and enjoy them." And like fashion accessories, they also inspire related choices, which included the oversized Williams-Sonoma pendant light fixtures with the same nickel finish.
