It’s much better to rest in a more intimate room after a whole day in a bright office.

Kitchens have been traditionally all-white for years now, but the look is getting too bland. Following the trend of moody interiors and mixed materials, you can have some fun incorporating bold hues to make the space stand out.

Incorporating the trend:

If you’re not a fan of bright tones or too much color, you can try painting a cupboard in your favorite hue and add warm wood tones to the rest of the kitchen.

Concrete sinks and flooring have been all over this year’s interiors, but for 2018 the raw material is making its way into the entire house. Think of:

  • Furniture
  • Decorative accessories
  • Wallcoverings
  • Countertops

While 2017 was all about cool neutrals, things are warming up for 2018. Instead of greys, now is the time to focus on warm neutrals that bring that sense of quiet strength and calmness, commonly associated with earth elements.

Go for tones like:

  • Camel
  • Rust
  • Tobacco
  • Brown-blacks
  • Dark red
  • Burnt Yellow
  • Rich beige

These rich and warm tones will contrast with our minimalist and technological age, making our homes feel more welcoming and inviting.
