 1)      Glamorous kitchens

From brass and chrome accents to creative lighting fixtures and dramatic counter tops and back splashes, today’s kitchens glamorous! Picture just the right amount of natural light, open room designs, and our next trend…

2)      Honey-tone woods

Walnut, oak, and cherry all have a warm tone that make your granite countertops, gleaming fixtures and lighting stand out. These tones create a warm and inviting feel that welcomes your family and your guests to sit and stay a while.

3)      Turquoise accents

Whether it’s in your upholstery, paint or wall décor, furniture, or just about anything else, you can’t go wrong with a fun turquoise accent! Combine with white for a stunning clean look or natural tones for a beachy or earthy feel.

4)      Hair-on Hide accents

Here’s a trend that’s making a comeback. Hair-on hide furniture and rugs make for a terrific standout piece in any room. Don’t feel like you need to stick with neutrals or make the whole room outdoors or animal themed either. Pair these with whites, bright accent colors, warm palettes—just about anything!

5)      Emphasis on styled outdoor living – modern, beautiful, comfortable

Lastly, today’s trendsetting homes show some class when it comes to outdoor living. Looks today combine the modern with the beauty of the great outdoors and sometimes even a rustic look. But above all, styled outdoor living s about comfort. Think big tables for outdoor dining and comfy padded chairs to sit in and talk with your guests for hours under the stars.
