The kitchen: Where food comes with a side of love. Where great design enhances the flavors of everyday life. Where the perfect sink and faucet make every kitchen task a pleasure. Six collections will inspire your dream kitchen design. You’ll find distinctive sink and faucet pairings that will work beautifully for the way you cook and the way you live.
The White on White Kitchen palette is more popular than ever. Pure and clean, white attracts light, creating a canvas where food provides the color. Whether outfitted with vintage touches or streamlined and sleek, white layered on white is a look that works beautifully for both classic and contemporary styles.
From topaz-hued glass to gleaming copper cookware and accessories, the Smoky Kitchen look is smoking hot. From the ember hues of warm wood cabinetry to rich charcoal-hued sinks and beyond, this sultry look comes to life with multiple elements.
An iconic neutral that’s long signaled elegance and sophistication in fashion, black is equally at home in the kitchen. There are so many ways to do black: on cabinetry and walls, in countertops and sinks, in any and all combinations. There’s nothing more chic than deep, glossy black with gleaming tile accents.
Soft, quiet and calming, it seems the pale neutral trend is everywhere now–including the kitchen. Soft blush hues, greys, and dusky browns show up alone, in layers, or contrasted with bright white. Silver-grey stained woods, pale-neutral paint shades, and cast iron sinks in rich contrasting and complementary colors are the distinctive elements that make up this style.
Strong, vibrant, playful patterns are making a big splash in fashion, advertising and interiors. From exuberant wallpaper to bold floor tiles and backsplashes, more homeowners are embracing pattern–and the kitchen is no exception. Whether geometric, floral or abstract, the playful pattern trend follows no rule but one: choose a look you fall hard for and will love living with every day.
Street style, public architecture, European fashion runways: All are reveling in bright, joyful color. Interior designers are using the color block with abandon, fully saturating spaces with a single hue, combining vibrant color with contrasting whites or neutrals, and punctuating spaces with pops of color from the opposite side of the color wheel. Blue is a kitchen favorite, whether it’s inhabiting a stately Southern-style space or a sleek and sassy mid-century modern cooking hub.
