If you’ve been following along with our Trend Talk Tuesday series – you know that we’ve had the privilege to learn from Christy Scanlon, president of Masterpiece Design Group on the top trends affecting today’s residential spaces. First time tuning in? Here’s a recap of our previous discussions on hot colors, kitchen must-haves and bathroom favorites.
Today, we wrap up the series with 3 trends in 3 minutes. Enjoy!
1. Lighter Finishes: According to Christy, dark, heavy beams and stained trim work are being traded for driftwood, honey-toned and limed oak woods. Bleached wood stains for flooring are making a striking comeback, while white and buttermilk cabinets complemented by white appliances are hitting the kitchen scene.
2. Mid-Century Design: A wave of nostalgia has swept over consumers as homes nod back to “simpler times.” Mid-century style means clean simplicity and integration with nature. Curves or geometric shapes are replacing busy, ornamental details.
3. Technology Advancements: Technology infuses every aspect of our daily lives – and the home is no exception. Tech hubs for officing and communication are growing in popularity. Architects and builders must incorporate the necessary apparatus and wiring to accommodate these changes, while designers must create spaces that aesthetically integrate and enhance technology.
