A reclaimed wood accent wall with a distressed finish is a cool way to give the dining space that shabby chic vibe without moving away from the modern color palette. The rest of the room can still remain contemporary with a small accessory or the dining table complementing the wooden accent wall with a similar finish. Simple and neutral finishes for the reclaimed wood wall also help in blending it easily with the rest of the open plan living area.
You can also gather decor from around the house, such as greenery and metallic bowls. Today’s featured centerpiece includes a combination of warm and cool tones. Grey meets gold in an irresistible pairing that showcases the power of mixing metallics. To keep the display from being too busy, stick with neutrals, such as silver, gold, linen and natural wood. Pops of greenery will add life, along with selections such as seeded eucalyptus.
Consider including a favor at each place setting. Small white pumpkins make a lovely addition to the Thanksgiving table. Linen napkins also work well with a grey and neutral palette. For a fun seasonal idea, place a pumpkin on top of each napkin, as shown below. Wash off each pumpkin before adding it to the table (to ensure that the napkins remain clean).
If recent trends are anything to go by, then a sleek, contemporary kitchen with polished finishes and glossy surfaces is definitely a thing of the past! As much as the late 90s and early 2000s moved toward kitchens with clean lines and a monotonous, factory-made look, homeowners are quickly turning toward more ‘natural‘ designs with styles such as farmhouse, rustic, industrial and country once again making a big splash. And the gorgeous Granduca from Marchi Cucine is a charming and tasteful addition to this growing lineup of stunning family kitchens.
It is not just the classic kitchen that looks good with the giant fireplace and its aged brick surround. Sleek, contemporary fireplaces have found their way into every room of the house and the outdoors! Giving you an aesthetic and energy-efficient way to add a fireplace to pretty much any kitchen, irrespective of its style and size, today’s fireplace is both versatile and adaptable.
But borrowing from tradition doesn't mean that you have to be stuck in the past entirely. Brainstorm ways to take a standard idea and give it a modern twist. If you get stuck, don't hesitate to bring a designer on board or to browse your favorite home design sites for inspiration on how to keep the classics looking current.
Aside from pulling the curtains closed for privacy, there are other benefits to having window treatments. This includes controlling the amount of light in your home, and adding an additional layer of insulation for your home — which reduces energy bills all year long.
There are containers that slide in and out to make cooking fast and easy; made out of light bamboo, the piece is built for double-sided use. There are three sizes available: Mono, Mini and Phoenix, which are great for various kitchen sizes; it is easy to take it outdoors to cook for a barbecue with friends or have it handy for picnics.
In past generations, and perhaps still in your own life, there were separate sets of dishes for every day, and nicer sets formal occasions and serving company. However, we think that the plates and dishes we use each day shouldn't be doomed to be unimaginative or unenjoyable to use.
