Hot! Hot! Hot!
Are these seven design trends, already heating up 2019, here to stay? Pictured are two of the "Colors of the Year" - Benjamin Moore's 2019 Metropolitan AF-690 and Pantone Color's Living Coral.
Softer White Wall Paint Colors - moving away from cold whites towards a more luminous warm white
Wood Finishes - wellness and a connection to nature are a huge trend, so we are seeing a movement away from a laboratory feel towards a warm, natural feel perfect for wood and stone
Pewter and Gunmetal Hardware - fits into the "Gray" 2019 theme
Colored Kitchen Cabinetry - moving away from the sterile feel of white cabinets towards a statement maker like black or gray blue. Green is also a popular choice.
Open Shelving - for upper kitchen cabinets, another statement maker. A great way to display your special, unique pieces.
Exposed Shower Plumbing - this trend can lean towards rugged or industrial depending on the hardware finishes. Think copper for rugged while shiny chrome offers a more industrial feel.
Porcelain Tile Mimics - less expensive and easier to install is a trend I can definitely get behind. Technology once again helps the construction industry with new advanced printing and improved materials which create an identical replacement.
