Current Interior Design Trends continued (Builder’s perspective in Part III).
CREAMY NEUTRALS… IS GRAY PASSE?
I am hoping that some design professionals might comment on this. I’ve heard from a few designers that Gray is going away….at least as far as being the main event in a space. I am told that in New York and L.A., creamy neutrals, taupes, and bones are “THE THING” and I also noticed that there were very few of the cliche all gray and white colorscapes in the recent ASID design awards. I understand that Grays will be incorporated as more of a minor accent role to layer with neutrals. I love the whole gray carrerra marble/white cabinet trend but those who have used this throughout their entire house may end up regretting it.
According to the most recent edition of Remodeling magazine, “Homeowners are ready to ditch all-white kitchens”. Darker cabinets (even black) are making a comeback and they are being used on their own as well as being mixed in with lighter cabinetry (see photo above, as well).
This is one of the biggest interior design trends of 2018. Whether it’s a concrete floor, countertop or a faux concrete look on the wall, concrete’s neutral color is organic, earthy, durable and low maintenance. Geometric concrete tiles are going to be a thing, too.
VINTAGE: Especially Lighting Fixtures & Bucket or Trough Sinks.
Think farm sinks and nostalgia. I LOVE Kohler’s new Farmstead cast iron vintage farm sink ! We have some client’s looking at this one and I would love to see it in their kitchen! Note the matte black faucet (matte black is another current interior design trend).
REDS, PINKS BOLD YELLOWS & TEAL
I’ve seen yellow being used on a large scale and I love yellow because it exudes happiness and confidence. Be careful, though. In too great a quantity, yellow can create anxiety, but in small pops, it is powerful.
Hey, thanks for spending some time with me discussing Interior DesignTrends! Let me know your thoughts! I’m interested!
