Lorraine Duplanty Kitchen, December 10th , 2017. Ideally, a kitchen should have lots of natural light and that usually means that sacrifices have to be made in order to accommodate large windows or that you have to find a way to design your kitchen with an open and bright decor. Multifunctional designs are always preferred in kitchens regardless of their size and style so why not have a window backsplash? It’s both a window and a backsplash and it’s exactly what a kitchen needs to look bright, spacious and inviting. Lots of architects and designers agree.
Guillaume Goguen Kitchen, December 10th , 2017. The L-shaped counter of this kitchen allowed Jordan Iverson to design it with long and narrow windows instead of backsplashes. The windows meet in the corner and offer a refreshing and continuous view of the garden. There’s plenty of space left for storage cabinets and shelves.
Annette Clavette Interior, December 10th , 2017. It‘s also important to remember that when it comes to trends, less is more. An entire room that it filled with today‘s stylish items will undoubtedly be tiring to the eye. Choose one or two trendy items that you can use as statement pieces. Then, balance the rest of the room out with neutral pieces.
Byron Guibord Interior, December 10th , 2017. The creative team at InForm designed the Elwood Townhouse, a private residence located in Elwood, Australia. A steel, glass, wood, and concrete exterior creates a straightforward and highly modern look. Inside, it‘s white walls and lots of light wood — just right for a home that includes a full-blown yoga studio.
Amorette Rancourt Interior, December 10th , 2017. Less is truly more when it comes to modern spaces. In this school of design, rather than thinking of negative space as something empty that needs to be filled, it‘s seen as an active detail in creating a minimalist aesthetic. The key to pulling off this look is making every design element count.
Brigitte Dupuis Interior, December 10th , 2017. The key lies in how you incorporate trends into your space. Limit en vogue items to the cheaper and more replaceable aspects of the space — think throw pillows or lighting. That way, if styles change a few years down the road, you’ll be able to easily swap those elements out for more current styles without a huge cost. Not exactly the case if you splurge on a green velvet sofa that you can’t bear the sight of in a few years.
Durandana Patenaude Kitchen, December 10th , 2017. While brushed stainless steel is the most common choice for countertops thanks to its more easygoing maintenance, there are a variety of other types of finishes available, such as antique matte or a polish that is satin or mirror. Of course, the shinier your finish, the more time you will spend polishing off fingerprints.
Pinabel Rouze Outdoor, December 10th , 2017. Since picket fences draw much attention to themselves with their classy look, they also draw much attention to your front yard. Make the best of it by creating a blooming yard. A charming little house with a calming gray interior is made magical by a really low white picket fence. The functionality of the fence is not a priority in this case – it’s all about the strong decorative value. Picket fences have been around for decades, growing in popularity with each year. Seeing an old-fashioned house with such a fence shouldn’t be a surprise but we’re still stunned about how much fresher a setting looks like, all because of a white fence. A house and a fence can blend together so well they seem to become one entity. The exterior feels synchronized in the most wonderful way, capturing the allure of simplicity.
Roger Barjavel Interior, December 10th , 2017. Turn on the TV and any home improvement show will tell you that the many of the styles that were incredibly popular just a few decades ago are now considered to be tacky and dated. If you want to focus on following trends, you need to prepared for the possible necessity of redesigning your rooms once tastes change, especially if you‘re thinking of putting your home on the market.
Delit Desaulniers Kitchen, December 10th , 2017. For a countertop that will not see heavy use, a slice of wood that features the natural contours of the tree can’t be beat. Variations in thickness and size, as well as availability, make them difficult to include in a functional kitchen. These are best suited to dining areas, bars or decorative countertops, not workhorse surfaces. The more gnarly the edge, the greater the artful feel.
