TREND ALERT: Kitchen Styling

Posted by Amy Patterson on 8/26/15 4:35 PM

From elegant counter top selections to artisan cabinetry – there are so many ways to customize your kitchen! But while there are many ways to do it, there are several incredible looks that are trending for 2015. These trends can transcend time and remain a staple of any home for years to come.

Perhaps the biggest decision you’ll make in your kitchen is that of color scheme. What palette will you choose to represent your design aesthetic? There are two big trends for kitchen colors right now: one is the classic black and white and one is a bold pop of color

TREND ALERT: Modern Brick

Posted by Amy Patterson on 6/18/15 2:36 PM

Exposed brick in a home creates an air of elegance with a flare of rustic style. The newest trend for homes is using exposed brick in super modern kitchens. It works very well as a back splash, statement wall or for the entire kitchen.

If you aren’t fortunate enough to have a home with original brick walls (many of us aren’t), you can utilize a faux brick wall design. Many faux brick designs are very authentic looking and successfully create the same drama that an original brick section would.

Here are some of our favorite ways to use exposed or faux brick in kitchens:

This kitchen is accented flawlessly by the brick back splash. It pairs well with the sleek wood block counter tops and the understated modern cabinetry.

This kitchen is completed by its exposed brick statement wall – we love the pairing of the sleek, modern cabinetry and flooring with the rugged look of the brick.

Another option to add some distinction and originality is to use non-traditionally colored brick, as shown here with this gray brick accent wall.

However you decide to customize it, you can’t go wrong by accenting a modern kitchen with brick.
