2019 Design Trends
2. Crittall Style
Concrete flooring is on the rise too. You can use concrete flooring to give your kitchen an edgy industrial feeling or try mixing it up with some warm and soft colours to give it a comforting effect. The natural grey shades of concrete look great paired against earthy tones, blush tones, pastels and neutrals alike. It’s flexible too; concrete can be stained, polished and waxed to give you different finishes depending on your preference and the style of your space. (image source www.cfc-coatings.com)
3. Mixing Metals
If up until now your go to plan was to pair silver with silver and gold with gold for fear of not “matching,” I won’t tell anyone. But I’ll let you in on a little design secret: Mixing metals is back, and in a BIG way. Should you choose to pair brass with chrome, copper with yellow gold, rose gold with stainless steel, or any combination of the above, your fixtures and decor are sure to pop from the decidedly unexpected complementary metallic finishes.
It’s also been happening for a while with jewellery and I am a big fan “so get mixing not matching”! You see what I did there…..
4. Home Bars
This one is from Oliver Bonas and is certainly swoonworthy….
