UPDATE: The Latest in Kitchen Trends

This year, we’ve seen dinnerware and kitchen accessories start to transition from sleek and modern to more organic and fun. We’re talking abstract and splatted paint, uneven and natural line work, and exciting colors, and veering away from “matchy-matchy” plate sets. Another eco-friendly trend that we’ve seen is the use of more organic and sustainable materials such as bamboo, marble, and wood which will last longer and survive the daily wear-and-tear of kitchen use.

Here’s some inspiration for your kitchen update๐Ÿ˜‰

Fall Fashion: Comfort is Key

Colder weather calls for comfier clothes! Luckily, one of the biggest trends this season in both fashion and home is COMFORT, with a focus on soft, cozy fabrics to keep us warm. We have been seeing tons of neutral colors that will match anything in your closet, and even sweaters that look (and feel๐Ÿ˜) like blankets. Here are some of our favorite looks:

Trend Alert: Concrete

Featured

Concrete:ย a heavy, rough building material made from a mixture of broken stone or gravel, sand, cement, and water, that can be spread or poured into molds and that forms a stonelike mass on hardening.

Now that you have the definition, let’s get inspired by how this amazing substrate can be used in the design world. Do you have a favorite designer that uses concrete?
