Perhaps you heard: The northeast got a bit of snow today. In my neck of the woods, that translates into about eight inches. The world has been transformed yet again into a frosty chiaroscuro with the upper halves of tree branches coated in white, while the bottom halves remain brown. It's all very picturesque—until one needs to walk, drive, or, of course, shovel. In my opinion, it's time for something a little different. From the Aspen II collection, these chromed Twig cabinet pulls are much more uplifting than their natural counterparts. topknobs.com
