The ‘New’ Brass Is Back in Home Design

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 07:00:14 +0000

Experience The Woodlands

Photo by Westborough Design Center, Inc. – Discover traditional kitchen design ideas   By Melissa Dittmann Tracey, REALTOR(R) Magazine It’s all about that brass. But don’t expect to see that 1980s super shine. Today’s trendy brass is more of an antique brass, which is being used in light fixtures, mirrors, frames, and even furniture trims. Mandie Maguire, an interior designer and broker associate with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services in Park Ridge, Ill., says antique brass fixtures are especially trendy with white kitchen cabinets along with a light quartzite countertop. The antique brass also pops against gray walls. “Brass is definitely back, but it’s a new brass – muted, less harsh, and not polished,” says Barbara Nazzaro, owner of A Simply Staged Home in the Boston area.   Photo by Cornerstone Architects – Search contemporary kitchen pictures Photo by Holst Brothers General Contractors – Look for beach style bathroom pictures

Home Design Trends to Watch: The Herringbone Pattern

Herringbone is the arrangement of rectangles that is so named for its resemblance to the bones of fish. This pattern is popping up on everything from hardwood floors, kitchen backsplashes and shower walls. It may be subtle or bold. Mandie Maguire with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services says she’s noticed the herringbone pattern subtly appear on more kitchen marble backsplashes above a kitchen range. Also, in flooring, the herringbone pattern is being used with tile floors to give it a more rustic — even hardwood floor resemblance.

Sneak Peek: The ‘It’ Paint Color for 2017

Sherwin-Williams revealed its 2017 Color of the Year: Poised Taupe (SW 6039). The company expects the brownish-gray hue to become the year’s go-to color for home interiors. Taupe marks a departure from the company’s mostly cool-toned neutrals it has tended to favor recently. A 2016 industry survey suggests a transition from grey to taupe. Nearly 40 percent of survey respondents said they would like to use warmer neutrals – such as warm grays, taupes, or beiges – in their home’s colors. What’s more, about two in five respondents said taupe was the neutral they would most choose. For a perfect pairing, Sherwin-Williams designers recommend combining Poised Taupe with pastels, brights, and jewel tones (such as a faded indigo hue for a French countryside look or combine it with a teal or sunny yellow for a more bold impact). “Poised Taupe celebrates everything people love about cool gray as a neutral, and also brings in the warmth of brown, taking a color to an entirely new level,” says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing for Sherwin-Williams. “Not cool or warm, nor gray or brown, […]

Let’s Talk Quartz: There’s Good Reason To

(image) Photo by Cory Holland and designed by Sandra Gjesdahl and Scott Gjesdahl By Melissa Dittmann Tracey, REALTOR® Magazine Granite no longer reigns. The most popular countertop material remodelers say they’re using is quartz, then followed by granite. In 2015, 89 percent of National Kitchen and Bath Association members said they used quartz in their kitchen remodeling projects. Meanwhile, granites popularity has been declining over the last four years. Quartz’ durability is winning over more fans; it’s known as being more resistant to heat and scratches. Plus, the resemblance to marble and its abundant color variations is also making it a more appealing option, says Mandie Maguire, an interior designer and broker associate with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services in Park Ridge, Ill. Barbara Nazzaro, owner of A Simply Staged Home in the Boston area, also notes a trend toward more home owners opting for simple “waves” in the quartz countertop design finishes, moving away from the small fleck designs that have dominated. transitional kitchen countertops traditional kitchen countertops modern kitchen countertops

Subway Tile Makes a Comeback in Kitchens, Baths

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 07:00:31 +0000

(image) Photo credit: Karen Eubank, Eubank Staging & Design By Melissa Dittmann Tracey, REALTOR® Magazine Glassy subway tile is nothing new, but it’s coming back stronger in kitchens and bathroom remodels in whites or bolder geometric patterns. “It’s classic, and a classic always remains,” says Karen Eubank, an interior designer with Eubank Staging & Design in Dallas. Richard Hoey, president and CEO of Active Renter, a property management company that renovates single-family homes, says he’s noticing a change from simple, white subway tile to the use of more eccentric geometric shapes, such as in the kitchen where the rest of the space has a minimalist design. “The juxtaposition between the overall simplicity of the room and the energy of the tiles really makes them stand out as a centerpiece,” Hoey says.
