With the increased focus on building and renovation over the past decade, there has been a growing demand for hardware that is both beautiful and functional. Magazines and DIY shows have touted the importance of updating hardware and now even famous designers are marketing their own door pulls, but with so many options home owners often don't know where to begin. Architectural Hardware focuses on all aspects of incorporating architectural hardware into the home history, styles, finishes, tips from the pros, how-to projects as well as room-by-room hardware design. In addition to a complete discussion of every facet of decorative hardware components for the home, Architectural Hardware also provides useful information on what to look for when shopping for hardware, such as hardware grades, safety codes to consider, security, as well as basic step-by-step installations instructions and room-by-room design tips from top designers, builders and architects.

For 15 years, Nancy Berry has been writing on the subject of interior design and architecture as a staff editor for magazines such as Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles, Cape Cod Home, and Old-House Journal. Additionally, Berry hosted the weekly radio show "Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Live" on the topic of design. Today, she is the editor and art director of Old House Journal's New Old House.Review:
From drawer pulls to hinges, architectural hardware is the final accessory for your home. Designer and writer Berry shines a light on this underappreciated topic. The manufacture, history, design, and installation of these parts are covered rather quickly. The photos, while beautiful, sometimes fail to illustrate effectively the hardware. Those restoring historic homes will not find enough information to aid in matching hardware to correct periods. However, this book, more an inspirational guide than a catalog of sample hardware, is distinctive in that there is really no other material covering the topic. For larger libraries only or on demand. - Library Journal December, 2006
