Trending Tuesday- Laundry Room Design

Whew---I’m finally out of my Thanksgiving food coma and I’m back with another installment of Trending Tuesday, and it’s about something so dirty……. I’m talking laundry rooms!!! There is a lot more attention and effort going into designing laundry rooms and I personally love it! I mean, if I have to spend any amount of time in a space it might as well be beautiful and cohesive with the rest of my home.

So what trends are out there right now? Color is definitely at the top of the list. Whether it be the cabinets, walls, or the appliances themselves people are choosing to make their laundry rooms bright and cheerful. They are the perfect place to try out a favorite color that you might not want to see on a daily basis in your main living space, and like powder baths, laundry rooms provide an opportunity to go bolder in your design choices.

Second, upgraded lighting. Gone are the standard, boring fixtures that used to be used for laundry rooms and hallways. Now it’s all about chic lighting that flows well with the rest of the home. This doesn’t necessarily mean expensive, but it also doesn’t mean you have to only use a simple flush mount fixture. A small chandelier, hanging pendants or industrial style lighting would all make great choices for laundry rooms.

Last, patterned tile! I am fully aware that I have a major obsession with patterned tile, but I truly cannot get enough of it. As I mentioned here, while patterned tile seems trendy, it’s actually been around for centuries. These tiles would be great on the floor, but they’re also really cool as a small backsplash accent.

Friday Favorites- Fall Fashion

Last week I shared my favorite fall tablescapes and this week it’s all about my favorite fall fashion.

Trending Tuesday- Favorite Green Paint

There’s a new design trend that has us green with envy--- cabinetry in shades of green! We love how green, a cool color, adds warmth to a room due it's natural quality (think how plants instantly make a room feel alive and inviting). It's classic, rustic, playful and modern. While it works nicely with all metal finishes, it especially pairs beautifully with brass or black hardware and is stunning against marble countertops. Whether used boldly as kitchen cabinetry or in a more subtle manner, we think green is here to stay. Below we’ve shared a few of our favorite green paint colors ranging from gray-greens to deep hunter greens.

An almost all white kitchen gets a little pop of color below the island.
