1 \ Keep it simple
So many clients are looking to simplify and
take on the “less is more” mantra. Homeowners are craving simplic-
ity in their lives and the focus has shifted from quantity to quality.
2 \ Open it up
Open shelving in the kitchen continues
to be on trend and rightfully so. Dis-
playing kitchenware is a growing trend
among all kitchen types, not just con-
temporary kitchens.
3 \ Create stylewith tile
Tile is becoming art in the home. Tile
is where style and creativity come into
play, have fun with it! Tile selections
for this year are abundant and super
cool: recycled glass tile, subway tile,
stone tile, tile with lights, pebble tile,
and glass tile mosaics with semi-pre-
cious stone are just a few of the numerous options. As for patterns,
Moroccan designs, herringbone and geometric patterns, even graf-
fiti tiles are becoming popular.
4 \ Neutral Rules…but Touches of Color are
Essential
Gray, “greige,” beige and bone color schemes continue to domi-
nate to create neutral palettes that are fresh and compelling. Various
shades of warm gray are most popular for neutrals in living spaces,
with deco accent hues of caramels, blues, topaz, olive, raisin, whis-
key and cinnamons used in more private areas, such as bedrooms,
offices, and dens.
1 \ Bedroom suites that stand alone
Create a personal space in bedrooms – a home in its own. Adding a fireplace for warmth,
architectural details with beams, wood on ceiling, the walls in faux all create an incredible
room. Even adding a beverage bar. It’s a place for personal time.
2 \ Entry room appeal
Entries can be beautiful, but mudrooms are used. Making the mudroom not only func-
tional but appealing. Add wood to the walls, for a great look and durability, built-in cabi-
nets for storage, furniture pieces that are functional, and great lighting. The mudroom
can be the new entry, so make it something inviting and a place you want to enter.
3 \ Pocket doors no more!
The hanging door trend is everywhere. Rustic or contemporary, you can’t go wrong with
hanging doors on rolling hinges. Use reclaimed wood to build a door with metal strapping
and don’t be afraid to use an old tool found on the property as the hardware. 
4 \ Bring dimension and beauty to interiorwalls
Wall treatments are back! Adding stacked moss rock; these walls were given an element
of design, color and texture to the room. Creating a warm and inviting
atmosphere, while bringing a little of the outside in – true mountain ap-
peal. This can be accomplished by using textiles such as stone, stone
veneer, wood, faux texture, American clay or wallpaper.
