Contemporary fireplaces allow you to get inventive with your kitchen design and the way you utilize the fireplace. A popular idea is to put the fireplace in an area where it can serve the kitchen, dining room and the living space in the open plan living area. Two-sided and three-sided fireplaces allow you to get this done with ease, and these smart fireplaces also become the protagonist of your cheerful and inviting ’social zone’. Those trying to take the experience of adding a fireplace to the kitchen can also take things to a whole new level with smart kitchen islands that house a fireplace within. For a kitchen that is simply sensational!

Gone are the days when the kitchen was filled with just polished plastic surfaces and design that was typical of the 90#x2019;s #x2019;cubicle#x2019; trend. Modern kitchens are once again going down the classic route and textural contrast is back in style, big time! With that mind, designers are turning towards both wood and natural stone to provide the necessary contrast even while keeping the ergonomics refined and cutting-edge. Apart from the warmth of wood, it is the exquisite elegance of marble that seems to be the preferred choice as cutting-edge kitchen compositions are being selectively draped in marble.

Serve It Up! Let‘s begin by highlighting some top trends in fall serveware. In Crate & Barrel’s Late Fall 2016 catalogue, the following description appears: “Still life comes to life.

The first few months of 2017 have seen wood emerge as the big winner when it comes to home design and decorating. Inclination of homeowners and designers towards materials that are far more natural and an ambiance that is relaxing and warm has meant that wood has topped the trends chart in the past few months. From fabulous wooden siding, to wooden ceilings and slats that combine privacy with insulation, wood is quickly becoming the go to material in the contemporary interior. So, why not jump in on this natural bandwagon by bringing wood into your dining room?

As textile design becomes more and more adventurous, it can still be surprisingly difficult to find a stylish table runner. The big brands may release only a handful of patterns, and if you’re not a fan of them, your search continues. Even when offering a range of colors, retailers sometimes still manage to leave the season’s hottest hues out of the fun. This fall, colors such as teal, wine and deep grey are all the rage, yet some of these shades are (very) slowly finding their way to the table. We’ve searched high and low to bring you the table runner finds below. From basic solids to trendy patterns (and even a few DIY favorites), get ready to plan your next tablescape

Richly Neutral tones take center stage in our second featured palette, but these neutrals are anything but dull. Just as layering black and grey can create a rich, dark look, layering neutrals such as grey and beige can add depth to your table. Don’t hesitate to pile on the greenery and produce for a bountiful feel. Start by choosing a tablecloth that will create an intriguing backdrop. Will the neutral tone be deep grey, or a lighter shade such as taupe or stone?

Dinnerware in grey and black will add a deep, rich element to your fall table, while flowers and greenery provide yet another opportunity to layer on the color. Don‘t be afraid of a saturated look. Fall holidays are all about celebrating nature‘s bounty, so take your cues from the vibrant leaves outside. Plus, this season‘s top hues are more understated than radiant, so use them freely without the worry of overwhelming your table.

Adding Black to the Mix A great way to bring the modern dining room in neutral hues to life, even while using a wooden dining table, is to turn to black. Black anchors these breezy dining rooms, accentuates the key features of the dining space and also allows the dining table to shine through. This can be done using pendant lights, chairs around the wooden table or a classy, dark tabletop itself. Using darker tones of wood for the dining table and chairs next to it also adds to its dramatic aura and turns the table into the focal point of the room.
