Give Away: $200 in adorne Light Switches and Plates (and a Marbling DIY!)

This weekend's give away is a great one. Legrand is expanding its North American presence and has a wonderful line called adorne, featuring truly beautiful and well-designed light switches and wall plates. It amazing how doing something as simple as swapping out a light switch and plate for something special can really elevate a room. Design is in the details!

For our mudroom, I chose to replace our old school double toggle switch with a double sofTap switch. You can choose other switches that operate with motion sensors (walking by or waving your hand in front of the switch), whisper switches, dimmers, remotely-controlled smart switches - they've thought of everything. I liked the extra clean look of the sofTap and I love that there's a tiny little light that very softly illuminates the switches when they're off, which is shockingly helpful for supporting my midnight snack habit.

They've also covered the gamut of wall plate possibilities (above). You can go glossy modern (like the white I have in this post), mirrored, metallic, leather, all sorts of colors, or the customizable option I used here in the mudroom. That option comes with a paper mat template that you can use for wallpaper or any art project you want to create. (The tutorial for the marbled paper is after the jump.)

To enter to win a $200 shopping spree with adorne, visit the site and choose your favorite switch and wall plate combos. (PS This video really helps the switched come to life - worth a watch!) Leave a comment on this post with your choices and where you'll use your new switches. Contest ends Friday August 16 at midnight. Winner will be emailed. Good luck!!

And don't forget to click through for the marbling tutorial...
I've been dying to try a marbled paper DIY for a really long time. I LOVE marbleized anything so this felt like a natural choice for my customized wall plate.

You'll need: a variety of nail polish colors (try the dollar store or CVS is having a 2 for $3 sale right now on some brands), water, a disposable container that's bigger than the paper or item that you're marbling, a toothpick or anything long and pointy (I used a long screw because our toothpicks are still packed away :)), paper or whatever you want to marble and a place to dry the items (I used a drop cloth). Also, you might want gloves, as my messy hands below will demonstrate.

 photo aDSC_0491.jpg

By the way, I think most anything can be marbled with nail polish - the possibilities are pretty endless. Flower pots and vases, finger nails (obvs), picture frames,  jewelry boxes, chair legs. There are lots of tutorials floating around the web that show all sort of cool ideas. I loved this one on Design Mom.

So, to start, fill your container with a bit of water. If you're marbling paper, you'll only need about an inch of water.

Take off all the lids to your nail polish to make the process go faster. You'll need to work pretty fast so that the polish doesn't start drying.

 photo aDSC_0510.jpg

Pour your colors in rings, one on top of the other. There's no right or wrong way to do this. Just pick colors and pour. If you pour slowly, the nail polish shouldn't sink.

 photo DSC_0503.jpg

 photo aDSC_0512.jpg

After pouring your rings, use a toothpick (or a screw) to pull the color. You're not mixing it - you're just going to move the colors around gingerly. Don't over-swirl and don't take too much time to do it.

 photo aDSC_0517.jpg

Then drop your paper onto the pattern, press softly to make sure the surfaces fully connect, and then pull off the paper and flip it around quickly but carefully to make sure the paint doesn't run. And then put it down to dry on your drop cloth.

 photo aaDSC_0518.jpg

It will be a little wet at first, but it dries quickly.

 photo aDSC_0522-1.jpg

Now, don't swirl again - the new pattern will be soft and completely lovely, so just get your next paper ready and dip it. I got at least three dips from each round of pouring. And I usually ended up liking the second or third papers the very best. The paint will be thinner and more dreamy-looking.

 photo aaDSC_0521.jpg

 photo aDSC_0531.jpg

I ended up doing three or four rounds of paint pouring (I'm swimming in marbled paper if anyone wants any:) ), but these were the ones I like the best for the switch/wall plate application. I had to pick ones that had more interesting perimeters since the middle was going to get cut out for the switches.

 photo aDSC_0535.jpg

 photo DSC_0543-1.jpg

 photo aaDSC_0548.jpg

 photo aDSC_0551-1.jpg

I ended up going with a darker pattern because I liked how it looked with the wall color.

The customizable wall plate comes with a paper template that I used to trace out the hole for the switch.

 photo aDSC_0569.jpg

You just remove the sticker on the plate to expose the adhesive and then place your art paper.

 photo aDSC_0579.jpg

And then I used a razor blade to make the edges fit perfectly. 

 photo aaDSC_0584.jpg

I really love how the wall plate turned out. It looks so pretty with the orange chairs. :)

 photo aDSC_0573.jpg

The finish on the papered plate is actually pretty solid because nail polish is an enamel (and this was a first-dip paper - so there's lots of polish on there), but I might paint on a clear coat later if I feel like it needs it.

Now, go enter the give away and make your own marbled wall plates! :)

The Dark Burnished Pewter, 1-Gang Wall Plate with the soft touch switch would be perfect in our newly remodeled kitchen (last piece needed to complete the look!)!

Becca said...

I love the customizable option with the soft touch switch! I looooove the project you did! It's beautiful!

Faubs said...

Gloss White, 2-Gang Wall Plate with Two Paddle Dimmers, 700W, Incandescent / Halogen. These switches are beautiful but pretty costly if you want to update an entire house.

I think I'm going to marble an old light switch for now ; )

Kendra said...

Gloss white with the Wireless Master switch. So cool. Didn't even realize those existed.

Emily said...

I love the glossy white wall plate with the soft touch switch. These really are beautiful!

I only wish the customizable cover that you made came with a clear cover to protect the paper.

Kelly said...

I love the white softap light with a bright-colored wall plate in an accent color for the room - the honey-colored one would look GREAT in my bedroom!
In other news, that pop-out outlet is pretty awesome, too!!

christa said...

Really, Jenny, you never do fail to amaze. I think id love just what you've chosen and attempt to copy it myself.

Ahric said...

Gotta go with wave switch in gloss white in our new kitchen/hallway!

JeanneW said...

This giveaway comes at a great time. We have to replace ALL the switches and electric sockets in the whole house. My husband and I are bemoaning the cost. We like the basic soft tap with the glossy white plate the best. Neat design! *fingers crossed*

Hollie Cooper said...

I love this, I am going to give this a try on something!

jcamp78 said...

These are great. I think I would go with the whisper switch and plate in white. I've got several places in my house where I could use new switches and outlets because I just painted. But my half bath needs it the most. It currently has 2 switches and 2 plugs all on one plate.

Linda said...

Wow- Loving the idea of the sofTap Switch, Wireless Remote for our living room - we could have a switch at both entrances to the room!
Also I like the sofTap Switch - because it looks so clean!
The French Oak plate also looks pretty modern - I would choose that or the gloss white- they look great!

erin said...

Oh wow! These are great! I would probably go with a white paddle switch with a brushed brass cover plate in my living / dining room. Might get a little more adventurous in the kitchen. We're right in the middle of redoing an old fire station, and it would definitely benefit from shiny new devices!

OliviaKyle said...

Wow! Every single time!! Love it! My favorites are the stainless!

Annie Neal said...

Love the soft touch and glossy white plate. These would look good in just about any room in my house, but would probably start with my living room!

Whit K said...

The Sensa Switch manual in auto off would be so great in a bathroom!

natwhat said...

Brush stainless steel with the paddle!

Would love to upgrade our NYC apartment...

Michelle Panting said...

That marbelized paper is out of this world awesome. It looks like actual stone. I can't believe you did that with nail polish, you magician, you.

Richelle said...

That looks so pretty with your dark walls!
I like the timed sensa switch and the custom plate.

Patty said...

Your post is so timely! Tonight I was looking at the entryway of the apt we are moving in and thought that the 1st thing I want to do is to change the ugly light switch! I really want to try to do your nail polish marble one - love the idea and the look! SoftTap switch would be awesome!

Navy Bean said...

These are awesome! And I love the marbled paper technique! Push Button switch, with the brushed brass 1-gang wall plate!

vintagemint said...

Would love to upgrade to a Touch Dimmer, Wireless Master (my house is full of dimmer switches) or even the sofTap Switch, Wireless Remote paired with the Gloss White 1-Gang Wall Plate.

Navy Bean said...

These are awesome! And I love the marbleized
paper technique! Push button, with the brushed brass 1-gang wall plate.

Kristen Alcorta said...

I'm a fan of the classic look Brushed Brass plate, but love the modern SensaSwitch with the auto-off... then my husband won't have to come in the room after me and turn off the lights!

Camille Hodgkinson said...

Love the sofTap switch with just the gloss white plates and the two paddles dimmers. Love your marbled plate!

atout said...

These are so awesome! I had no idea something like this existed. Would love the Gloss White with the Wireless Master switch

Casey said...

I love the Touch switch with the Custom plate. Your marbelized paper version came out so good! I'd probably try to do something similar if I won. :)

Jessie said...

I like the brushed brass plates. I'd out them in the living room and office!

courtney said...

Whisper with the moss gray!

kpolhill said...

I am digging those GFCI outlets! We need to have some installed in the kitchen and bathroom, since none of our outlets are GFCIs. :P

Sheila S said...

Oh boy, these are beautiful! A cherry red 4-gang plate with paddle switches would be just the thing for my entry way!

Marina K said...

So many great choices! Custom Wall Plate, 1-Gang, Magnesium Trim and Wave Switch in silver.

Paddle switch with aged brass! So beautiful. There are so many cool things on this website.

Lucy said...

I love the wave switch on the brushed stainless steel plate!

Love! I already loved the plank walls, but that marble plate is just fantastic. I think the Brushed Stainless 3 gang wall plate would be perfect for our living room with the sofTap Switch (what fun technology!).

Karly K said...

I'd choose the wall plates according to the different rooms in my house. I don't think I could pick just one!

Lauren said...

Would love the antique bronze wall plate with the Paddle switch.

Alyssa said...

love the SofTap option! I have an unhealthy obsession with that pale grey blue color so that would be my choice. It would be perfect for my bedroom!

AnnBSimo said...

These are amazing! We are building a new house which is in a race to the finish with my due date for our first little baby due Nov 30th. I would LOVE to have the customizable plates and whisper switches in every room of our house for a clean and modern look. Would love to upgrade the regular switches the builder will use for these gorgeous options! Might have to splurge on just the bathrooms or bedrooms if I don't win this contest :) Thanks for the great post!

Laura Freidenfelde said...

Really inspiring. Thanks :)

I would go with the touch dimmer wireless remote in turquoise blue. Our living room is longing for colours.

Bamily said...

So so neat! I love your plate. If I were to win, I'd shamelessly copy you and marble away. I love the soft touch feature.

Angie said...

Love the switch plate - My daughter is sourcing her nail polish stash now to try the marbling! :) Love the giveaway - I'd change out our hall switches & plates (to encourage turning off the light!) with the adore Soft Touch Switches and the Custom 1-Gang Magnesium Trim Plates. Love adore and LGN!

Shannon Preston said...

My husband and I just bought our first house and it needs some seriously upgrading! These switches would be perfect if we could install them everywhere - but we might start with the entry. Love the SensaSwitch for an entryway!

Shannon said...

The manual on, auto off switch would be perfect for my boys' rooms (they never remember to turn off the light). I think the customizable plate cover would be fun option, too. Thanks!

Jessica said...

I am a sucker for the white whisper switches for sure!

Dave & Sara Nelson said...

The adorne collection is fabulous....I would have a hard time choosing :)

Cammie said...

Those are beautiful! I love the idea of colored wall plates. My being-built-nearly-finished-needs-electrical-finishes house has so much white the little pop of color would be amazing!

mariareilly said...

I love the aged brass wall plate! Thanks for the giveaway!

Geevz said...

I like the titanium one

Tori said...

I would use any of them! But I really liked the Wenge Wood on and the paddle switch for the bathroom we just redid!

Sheri said...

sofTAP switch with the satin bronze, 1-Gang wall Plate. I'd put it in our dining room. We just moved and eventually the whole room will be redone. Inspiration!

Caitlin said...

I would love the glossy white plates with soft touch. Considering all the plates are off our new home, we would have plenty of places to put these.

Natalya said...

What a great post! Funny how you don't know you need something until you become aware of it :)
Love the look of the French Oak 2 Gang Wall plate. Would pair it with the Whisper Switch and sofTap Switch, Wireless Master.

Michelle S. said...

Ooh - these are neat! I'd replace the three switches in my dining room/kitchen with two regualr paddels, and one dimmable paddle.I love the look of the mirrored white plate - it would be perfect!

tbg said...

gloss white, 2 gang, touch switches! just discovered this company and I'm in love!

The Mickelsens said...

I would use the sense switch for my kids bedroom and bathroom because they NEVER remember to turn off the lights. I would love to try the custom wall plate with white trim. This would be so FUN to win! casidyanne at hot mail dot com

Elisabeth said...

Turquoise plate with soft touch switch :)

Lorna said...

Awesome timing on your giveaway! I am needing new plates in our bathroom, and was wanting to use the Adorne! I would use the GFCI outlet, paddle switch and dimmer. Cream I think.

Cassie said...

Wenge Wood with the Touch Switch!

Chris said...

I think I'd do soft touch with aged brass, I wish I could update my entire house!

Unknown said...

Oh! We still have those large clunky safety outlets in our living room from when our tweeners were babies. Time to change those suckers out! Basic, classic gloss white outlets and Softouch switches for me. Thanks!

Bec said...

You are seriously genius! I love what you did with the switch plate! I don't know how you come up with these ideas, but I'm so glad you do because they are hugely inspirational for me! Very cool. Loving that room.

Smart Chic Girl said...

Love your marble look! For my kitchen I would install a Whisper Dimmer Wireless in magnesium finish and a Brushed Stainless Plate. Will be great to be able to control lighting of multiple rooms with a remote control.

sherry said...

Love these switches and outlets! Definitely would choose the white edge customizable plate double with soft touch switches. Also in love with the pop out outlets and usb outlets, this would solve so many charging problems! I would start with our entry and work my way around the living/dining/kitchen eventually.

Kelly West said...

These would really perk up a bathroom: whisper switch and plum wall plate.

Noel said...

I would pick the sofTap switches with brushed stainless steel plates. It would be perfect in my kitchen/pantry area.

beth said...

Love the soft touch, I just bought my first house and have some original 1978 faux wood grain switch plates in places...Would love the upgrade. Seriously.

sarah m. dorsey said...

I've been looking for an easy way to marble paper without a lot of products/steps and this seems perfect! Thanks for sharing!!

rosa said...

Totally cool. Whisper switch with satin nickel plate for me.

Felicia said...

love the sensaswitch with the cherry wall plate. that would be great in my living room!

justtherightangle said...

The sofTap Wireless Master switches and Gloss White plates look amazing! They would be perfect for replacing our current switches (installed in the 40s, I think), which make me feel like I'm flipping a breaker switch every time I need to see down our hallway.

alisonues said...

Gwen, The Makerista said...

I love this! what a beautiful tutorial and I love that the lightswitch becomes art...you're a genius. :)

I think I like the softap in black leather. My husband would just love this!

Thanks for the chance, Jenny, have a lovely weekend!

ro-grammie said...

I never thought about decorating with switch covers. it opens a whole new world of fun ideas

The wireless options are pretty great, with minimal flat-coloured plates. But it's the pop-out outlets that set my heart aflutter!

I would want the design your own plate in the soft tap! Thanks Jenny!

Kris said...

We just moved into a 1930s stone cottage and all light switches and electric sockets in the whole house have to be replaced. Glossy White please. Beautiful design.

dark burnished pewter 2-gang with pop out outlet and nightlight ... perfect for bathroom for senior ... outlets as necessary and nightlight for safety ... plus motion for lights.

Jeannine @ Small and Chic said...

I can't tell you how much time I've spent prying painted-over switches and switch plates off the walls of our new home. O would LOVE to replace them with something attractive.

I'm totally fascinated by these twitches, I like the custom plate you used and could see using a beautiful paper inside it and for switches I like the whisper ones.

As boring as it may sound-I actually like the paddle switch with the gloss white plate! I'd use it in our newly renovated bathroom!

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who gets excited to find a really cool light switch!!

Your marbling is GORGEOUS btw :)

Julia said...

I think I'd stay classic... Glossy white with maybe the soft touch. They're definitely cool switches!

Catherine Pringle said...

The brushed brass with a soft touch switch would be great in my kitchen!

Dropout! said...

Either the wave or the soft touch with a brushed brass or glossy white in my kitchen would be great. Of course, any is them would be an improvement over the existing stuff.

Nicole said...

I had no idea this brand existed- I love fancy light switches! I would choose the softTap in either satin Bronze or the Leather for the new lake house that I am building. Definitely bookmarking the site, just in case I don't win!

Linda Cox said...

I'd love the chance to try some adorne products in my kitchen especially! The sofTap dimmer with a pop-out outlet would be great. Choosing a plate for them would be challenging - so many great choices.

Thanks for the giveaway and marbelizing tutorial!

Sarah said...

Mirror White, sofTap switch. These are so pretty! Love the marbling!

Teresa at Splendid Sass said...

Great giveaway!
Love the touch switch and mirror white plate.

Mighty Mighty Rudds said...

This is a hard decision. But, I think for my downstairs living room and dining room I would do the soft tap in the antique brass. For my family room I would do the soft tap in the wedge wood. So cool!

C.B. said...

Love these! I would go for a paddle or soft touch switch. My 2 bedroom condo would be easily updated.....but I'm in Canada and they don't have a distributor here......I'm gonna send them an email say that Canada wants them!

Jjo8112 said...

When I saw this contest I nearly gasped out loud! My hubby and I have been eyeing the French Oak 2 gang plates with the sofa tap switches for our bedroom and family room since we placed an offer on our new house in April! We just haven't been able to justify it just yet, but they would definitely add a little class in an unexpected place. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win!!!

Jessica Streng said...

I love the soft tap touch ones with the gloss white plate. I would get the double to replace some ugly knobby ones we have right now. :)

Zucca said...

I love the purple wall plate and the white sensaswitch with timer. I would put these in my mom's house which she has been updating on her own for a few years. She loves bright colors on all the walls and especially purple. She would be so excited about these purple switch plates!

Softap satin brushed nickel for me! Beautiful!

Lauryl said...

Like the paddle switch with a dimmer, and customizable wall plate---or antique bronze!

MSW said...

the whisper dimmer with turquoise wall plate would be great in my kitchen. since it's the place people always congregate during a party I'd like the option of switching from brighter cooking light to a dimmer party light.

Jacoby Cv said...

I love a glossy white wall plate. Does that make me boring? I also really like the look at the soft touch switches.

Angela said...

We just tiled the backspash in my kitchen. I would LOVE to replace all of the outlets in there with the popout outlets. So sleek and they would just disappear into the tile. And maybe add a USB outlet for charging while I was at it.

I'm thinking I like the whisper switch with the stainless steel plate for my kitchen.

Love your marble one!

Keggy25 said...

I love these. Been wanting to switch out and hear their dimmers work with new bulbs. Love the blk leather wall plate or grey moss gang wall plate with auto on and off sensation switch. I also want to get a updated video intercom. Thanks for introducing me to this. I'd use it in my entry hall with this gorgeous farrow and ball wallpaper.
Thanks. Love your redoes. It's what made us love you from the beginning. All the DIY even though you could pay someone. But then you don't appreciate as much. Love your style. Soooo wish you'd let me hire you when thins slow for you

jen5273 said...

i like the paddle switch and LOVE your marbled plate you made. How fun!

Lindsay James said...

I'd love one of the soft touch switches in the glossy white. Clean and neat!

Ashley said...

I love the gloss white soft touch for all of the bathrooms in my house. Easy to see at night. Cool!

dianne anderson said...

I love the Whisper Switch in white!

Lisa said...

I've been looking at these for some time but it always feels like I have so many switches. I love the whisper switch with gloss white plate.

Kristi said...

Ooo, the soft touch with gloss white would be so nice!

cleanuponaisle6 said...

Customizable option with the wireless master switch. Gorgeous!!!

kerrjenn said...

I'd use the simple paddle switch in gray with the burnished pewter wall plates in my kitchen. I think kitchen light switches get the grossest over time.

Tiffany Anne said...

I am so torn between the lovely black and white pattern with the soft touch switch but am utterly tempted towards the lovely turquoise shade.
I would have the ultimate play date with myself customizing any single option in this fantastic collection. I truly cannot pick which I would prefer!
Excellent find and am so thrilled I found your blog.
You've been officially bookmarked and tomorrow I'm picking up my foam board as you've inspired me to finally cornice my bedroom windows! The absolutely most do-able DIY for cornices on the web.
Many thanks!
: )

Natasha said...

That looks amazing - I love the marbled plates!! I think my favorite is the plate in moss and I love the SofTap switch - that is so cool!!

Tiffany Anne said...

*Edit*
I think my favorite is the mirror white four module wall plate. The pop-out function is brilliant!

These little beauties are wonderful!

How can anybody choose just one favorite? It's like jewelry - but for your home!

jackiemdoyle said...

love the dark burnished pewter

aidandbren said...

I like the wave switch in white. We move into our new (old) house on Monday! This would be perfect in the kitchen (or any room).

Maggie said...

I love the paddle switch in oil rubbed bronze!!!

SMS said...

Just saw these at Lowe's last night and was intrigued. I really like the sofTap switch in plum. :)

DBuckelew said...

These are amazing! I am in complete awe of the nightlight/portable flashlight. What a fantastic idea! And as we are currently replacing all the switches and outlets in EVERY SINGLE ROOM of our house, one by one as we go, what a wonderful prize this would be to win!

Mark duBose said...

Love the marblized plate. Absolutely would look wonderful in my tiny guest bath. The pop that is needed! Ivory toggle switch. Custom Wall Plate, 1-Gang, 3-Module, White Trim. Jenny, thanks for doing your blog. It provides SO much inspiration!

JEH said...

I'd love the paddle dimmer for our family room that has overhead lighting and lamps. With the ORB plates to match our door handles.

milagro.lobato said...

i like the satin bronze plate and the softap switch.

Karen K. said...

I'd love the paddle switch with a honey wall plate in the kitchen. it'd be so cheery

Holly said...

I would choose the Wave switch with turquoise plate for our powder room.

seattlesarah said...

As a renter, one of the first things I do in a new apartment is install a dimmer switch in the dining room. With that in mind, I would get a whisper switch with a gloss white plate!

I love the idea of those softouch switches, but I would be worried that guests would just mash the crap out of them! Sometimes having a little bit of pushback is useful, you know?

Tiffany said...

Still deciding on the switch but as for the plates, the gloss white, the brushed stainless and the brushed brass are gorgeous!

A.E.B. said...

I love the SofTap Wireless with either the pale blue or the customizable plate, and I'd use them in our entryway or in our bedroom! These are AWESOME!

Eva said...

I have a whole house full of switches and plates that need replacing. This week we ripped out tile, electrical work is on the horizon. With the volume of switches I have to worry about at this point I'd be thrilled to have basic paddle switches in every room. I haven't chosen wall colors yet so it's hard to say on wall plates, but I love that I have options other than straight up white or old yellowish which is what's in the house now.

Janna McCalley said...

I had the majority of our lighting put on dimmers, but would love to switch them all to a gloss white with the paddle dimmers. Sooo cool!

Trista S. said...

Sensa and brushed brass. The sensa seems so futuristic to me! Trista(dot)swing(at)gmail.com

Maren said...

The timing on this would be PERFECT. We are building a home right now and I would so love to replace the standard light switches with these beauties. I'd likely choose the satin nickel with the sofTap switches for a couple of rooms and, since custom is practically my middle name (seriously - everything in my life has to be custom...I'm so difficult to please!)I would have to do the custom plates with the sofTap dimmers in the bedrooms. Pretty please, pick me!!

The timing on this is great! I was just looking at the switch plates in my bathroom (both toggle and outlet) wondering why I didn't replace them when I redid the bathroom and that I need to call Kyletheelectrician (hotty!). I would go gloss white 2-gang wall plate with two paddle dimmers.

I like the customizable option with the whisper dimmer. Perfect for our little eating area.

Melissa said...

I love these! I would go for the Satin Nickel plate w/ the dimmer switch for my living room.

ROK said...

Customizable in magnesium trim with soft touch (or whisper). I usually wish my plates would disappear, but these guys have me rethinking my position (wenge?)

Christa Donnelly said...

I would use the sofTap dimmer and the paddle switches with the Antique Nickel and Custom wall plates in the little hallway between my kitchen and den that has 7 switches in that little space.

I would love to try the marbeling for our bedrooms-yours turned out great!

sabrina zimmerman said...

The wave switch is amazing! I would pair it with the brass switch plate.

Melissa Harry said...

I like the whisper switch with the white mirror plate.

Melissa Arnold said...

I NEED the remote control switch for my Hollywood closet. My husband changed the swing of the door, which totally makes sense for the room but the light switch is now behind the door! I would choose the high gloss white remote switch. What a great giveaway. Thanks!

Kristine said...

Hi there! I love the remote control switch, and I may try your tutorial, it is so super cute!

Kathryn said...

Mirror white, 2-gang wall plate with wireless touch dimmer. This would be great in my living room so I don't have to get off the couch to turn down the lights during movie night.

Erin Hochstetler said...

The Brushed brass, 1-Gang Wall Plate with the soft touch switch is awesome! Thanks for the giveaway :)

Brooke said...

Love your marbled project! I'd like to try my hand at that, but I also love the clean look of the glossy white with the soft touch switch. The details do matter!

kryzebol said...

I think the brushed brass wall plate with the paddle dimmer would be beautiful our bedroom :)

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

I love the one you made. I think I would go with mirrored or white.

Jenny - you are a fantastic resource. Keep up the great blogging. I love finding brands I wouldn't normally find on my own through you. Legrand is ideal for a few problem areas in my home. One being my son's room. I'd use the "timed off switch" set to 10 because he tends to forget to shut it off alot....I love the 1 gang wall plates in magnesium and turquoise and the wave switch would be handy for my basement switch when I head down with baskets of laundry.

Panda Bear said...

We just bought and moved into a new home (yay!!) and every light switch needs to be replaced (boo!). I love the Antique Nickel or Bronze with the wave switches. So pretty!!

Whattachick said...

I am obsessed with the Adorne Collection! I am buying one piece each month. I like the paddle switch with the beige wall plate and I love the night light! Your creativity is impressive!

Tmbrenneke said...

Love the white sofTap Switch and Brushed Brass wall plate.

Beth said...

The Custom Wall Plate would look amazing using your faux malachite tutorial! I would have at least one in every room!

Laura D said...

I'd use the sofTap switch with the cherry 1-gang wall plate in my entryway for a fun pop of red. I love your marbling tutorial!

Ari Okano Lee said...

I love the Custom Wall plate and the Turquoise blue wall plate. The paddle switch and wireless master switch are very cool.

Angie Romines said...

I love the ones with the nickel finish. I have all different wall plates/switches throughout our new house. One is wooden, a bunch are yellowed, one has little girl wall paper on it. I'd love to have sleek, consistent plates, switches, and outlets.

Erin Gutierrez said...

Loving the squared shape of their plate openings! How modern and refreshing. Favorites are (and I will be showing this to friends in the design space!): Soft Touch Felt Green, 1-Gang Wall Plate & just the basic paddle and soft-touch switches... oh and btw the TradeMaster USB Charger with receptacle would be great for my office!

Meaghan [for a song] said...

I like the basic paddle and soft touch switches, and would love the black leather plate. So dramatic! Who knew wall plates could get so fancy?

lifeandacarryon said...

I love the wave switch with the 1-gangs wall plate. The simplicity and ease of that would be so wonderful for a restroom!

kamantha said...

I would love the brushed pewter for the master bedroom and the bronze one for the office!

The Fam said...

Whoa! One of the most unique things I've seen in a long time! Really like the sofTap Switchs, a Paddle Fan Speed controller would be SO cool! Great product, beautiful art, just lovely!

I never knew such things existed! This would be my combo: Brushed brass 1 gang wall plate and soft tap switch

rachelle rachelleranck said...

Hi, Jenny! We just moved our little family into our dream fixer-upper of a house and light switches definitely need some updating! I would go for the softap with glossy white in most rooms, but I would love to try your marbleing DIY in the bathrooms and the foyer :)

Amanda said...

So hard to choose! Would do the magnesium soft tap with dimmer in the dining room with the custom wallplate with magnesium trim. Would do the stainless steel wallplates for the kitchen with magnesium soft taps. Would do the mirror white wallplates and white soft taps for our upstairs and downstairs hallways. We took on a fixer upper - - - there's no end to the projects!
