In an effort to post a bit more about house related topics, I thought it’d be fun to start with a ‘house trends’ post. This is a mash-up of things I’ve noticed popping up a lot more in the past few months and how I think it will affect things this year.
White walls and rooms are awesome. They help put the attention on other things in the room that you love, but help keep the look clean and consistent. They don’t fight against other colours, but absolutely embrace them. They can also help make a space feel open and bright! This is also the perfect colour if you want to showcase a bold colour sparingly, since you won’t have to put much of it in the room to have huge impact.
Yes, walls again, but am I the only one?!? Or have you fallen in love with this too? Black walls can actually have the same effect as white walls on colours, they will let them shine, or depending on how you use it they can be the star of the show. Most are afraid to paint a room a dark colour, but I think this one is worth trying out. If you’re not crazy about painting an entire room black, try it out on just one wall and to see how you like it! I’m definitely going to try to fit this into our home, hopefully this year.
Moroccan Inspired Tiles
I’ve noticed a lot more kitchens and bathrooms pop up recently with fun tiles, they seem very moroccan or even indian inspired. They have fun, intricate patterns and are usually in bright colours, but can also be found in more subdued tones for those that aren’t adventurous enough to go bright. A few suggestions, when mixed with a classic kitchen it can add an amazing texture to a backsplash or add for a really fun accent wall in a bathroom. They could also bring a big box store/builder basic type of kitchen to a whole new level!
