The beautiful dandelion example below, to me, speaks something about me and my life. It is more than a nice looking picture; and this is what to aim for within this trend, which will be a popular one for 2014.
Copper wall paneling gives this kitchen a bit of a design edge. Yellow Eames-inspired chairs are the ultimate pop of color in this otherwise neutral design. Stainless steel fixtures are all the shine this kitchen needs for its luxurious aura. Black and wood as used here are entirely minimalist, with every kitchen item hidden carefully away in recessed cabinets.
Giving the breakfast bar area a separate wood finish creates a relaxing separation from the kitchen's countertop and a comfortable place for guests to relax while dinner is being prepared. A butcher block countertop is a dream come true for any chef, making quick work of chopping and aging beautifully over time. Black and white is always chic as evidenced in this kitchen/breakfast bar space that's perfect for one or hopefully two.
Marble countertops are the height of luxury and the dark coloring keeps thing completely manly in this creative kitchen from Delta Tracing. Not every kitchen needs to adhere to monochromatic schemes to be more masculine. The mustard yellow countertop in this kitchen cleverly winds around a corner making a perfect space for breakfast or a neat, inspiring work area. Tucking bulky appliances like a stove into the wall makes this gleaming white kitchen seem that much more orderly.
Minimalism always works great in a kitchen, provided it has enough storage potential, which this one definitely does. Using a lowered ceiling in a room without windows can sometimes make a space too dark but the use of light materials with a slight sheen helps to maximize the lighting from other sources.
Neutrals or moodies? Choose the shades of grey to your liking: from very light and subtle to dark charcoals and almost black to create an ambience that you like. It will be a perfect base for further decorating, and then choose shades of green that you like: emerald, mint, sage, lime or else, it depends on your taste and mood you want to create.
Scandinavian style is very popular for décor today but sometimes it looks a bit cold and uncomfortable. This living room is none of that kind, it looks cool, warm and even a bit cheerful. Let's have a closer look at it to catch some details and get inspired.
A sofa can be considered the base and focal point of any living room, so choosing it is very important. If you want, you can always choose a neutral sofa that will easily fit any space but I'd like to share girlish ones. Pink, blush, lavender, purple with metallic accents are right what you need to express yourself, and the design can be totally different, from vintage refined to simple and modern. Prefer soft upholstery, rounded shapes and oval backs, gilded legs and lots of soft and fluffy pillows.
Shades across the brown spectrum may not be the first thing that pops into your head when you imagine a trendy kitchen space, but this design has sandwiched a few together to great effect. The T shaped kitchen island is a really nice touch too if you have that kind of floor space. Sweet pink and blue color pops are the focal point in this culinary scene, placed upon a pretty rug that you might normally see in plusher parts of the home.
Kitchens are changing. With the growing popularity of breakfast bars and dining tables integrated with kitchen islands, counter-height seating is growing in demand. Whether you're looking to outfit an actual bar, provide backup seating for a standing desk, or need comfortable dining chairs, this post has just the right seats for the job. Here we cover a number of styles: rustic, modern, minimalist, Scandinavian, industrial, mid-century modern, futuristic, and beyond – there's something for everybody! And best of all, we've taken care to hunt down treasures for every budget.
