Trends seem to come and go faster than we can keep track of, and home trends are no exception. Everyone wants their home to be up to date but sometimes it’s hard to keep current on what is in style these days. This month we’ll cover the latest home trends.
For a few years now, the home industry has been crazy for grays. We are starting to see a subtle shift away from stark grays and whites to colors with a bit more warmth. “Greige”, a gray-beige, is becoming a popular home paint color. Warm grays offer homeowners the fresh cleanliness of a gray with the comforting warmth and hominess of earth tones. We are also seeing a trend towards deeper jewel tones. Think deep blues for a home office, or a moody charcoal color in a powder room.
Wood is always in style, and that is no exception to the current trends. From wood floors to stained wood cabinets, wood never goes out of style. We are seeing a draw towards lighter wood floors and a mix of white and wood cabinetry in kitchens. One way to carry this out is by using painted cabinets on the perimeter of the kitchen with a stained wood island as the focal point.
Mixed metals is a way that looks organic and less formal. So long are the days where everything has to match, we are now seeing homes that incorporate pewter, brass, copper, and black hardware and fixtures into the same space.
If you have perused Pinterest lately, you are sure to be aware of how popular open shelving in the kitchen is this year. We are seeing this done in a wide variety of ways, from the complete removal of upper cabinets, to a more subtle installation of a few floating shelves to create a focal point in your kitchen. This trend is a great way to add more texture to your kitchen by using wood floating shelves, or forged iron shelving installed over your backsplash to create a layered, lived in look.
A bold backsplash is another popular trend right now. Whether you a choose a patterned tile that turns your backsplash into a piece of art or classic subway tile laid in a unique design – make your backsplash a statement.
