Trends come and go and certain trends are very specific to their time. Find a magazine from ten years ago and you’ll notice how much certain things have changed in the interior design world. Have they changed to your taste or has your taste adjusted to today’s trend?
I like to believe I like classic interiors. The more I work in this area, the more I see new ideas making every magazine and every blog, but as fast they come, the faster they go. Today, for the majority of us, a white kitchen, preferably with white marble countertops is the ideal kitchen. Is that a trend? White cabinets and white marbles have been around forever, but they have never been this popular. Perhaps nowadays classic is becoming trendy and if that’s a fact, this house is could easily be classified as a “classic-trendy family home”.
Take a look at this beautifully designed family home and let me know what your favorite trends are that you spot here!
As soon you enter the house you notice the attention to detail and “classic trends”, such as dark stained floors, millwork and striking light fixtures.
French doors welcome you into a home office.
The space is not too big, but the placement of the furniture combined with the doors and windows to the gardens make the room appears larger than it actually is.
To the Dining Room
The house has an open concept, having all the main rooms connected to each other.
What a lovely dining room! You simply cannot miss the blue grasscloth on the ceiling.
Blue is once again used on the velvet chairs.
The dining room opens to the living room.
Dining Room Decor
Comfortable and with the perfect amount of space.
And, as you probably know, I love when I see a well-designed built-in like this one!
Can you spot more trendy elements here?
Okay, so this is a very, very beautiful space, but how long do you give for the decor to look outdated?
Architecturally speaking, this room will look up-to-date for many years to come. The builders chose some great classic materials for the living room and for the entire house for that matter.
So, remember this when building or renovating your home: bring trend to your home with replaceable decor and not fixed elements. They’re harder and more expensive to change.
The light fixture is by Regina Andrew.
The furniture placement is perfect for entertaining or to curl-up with a throw by the fireplace.
Family Room & Kitchen
The living room opens to a stylish kitchen.
The draperies’ fabric is Candice Olson design: Portfolio Zuma Kiwi.
This kitchen is wonderful! I love how spacious and bright it feels.
A touch of turquoise is added with the stools.
This is not a bland white kitchen. This kitchen is full of personality and color.
I love the beautiful honed white marble on this island. Trendy? Definitely, but also timeless! 😉
The chandelier is by Arteriors.
Who wouldn’t love to have this “trendy” kitchen, right?
The countertop on the island is a honed carrara marble. The exteriors are quartz.
This kitchen has the classic (and lovely) white subway tiles as backsplash.
This is a Wolf 36″ Dual Fuel Range.
Connected in style!
Leather is always a great choice for stools or kitchen chairs. It’s durable and easy to clean.
I am big believer we should have fun when designing our powder rooms. Make it feel interesting and never boring. A boring small space feels extra boring! Bring in some color, some artwork, something to look at!
I am not completely sure, but I believe this small area was designed for a pet. If so, this is probably the most stylish kennel I’ve ever seen! 🙂
Built-in Home Office
A great place to do some errands. Notice the blackboard, which is so useful in a hallway: a perfect message center!
Up & Down
Great millwork! Also, notice the wall painted with chalk paint. I know this is a huge trend now, but does anyone that hates the idea of giving chalks to their kids inside of the house? I mean, if you were a kid, wouldn’t you be bored with only one wall and venture yourself with the chalk around the house? … And I won’t even mention the dust! LOL
Lovely classic white spindles.
From here you can see the French doors leading to the family room (study). Notice the windows on both sides. This allows more natural light to come to the rest of the house and it adds some architectural interest to the space.
Love green? So, then this room is for you!
Colors to love: celery green with teal and coral accents.
Trendy and fun!
Fabric on chairs is “Clipper Pumice” by CR Laine.
Gray is also another very trendy color. I actually love this color for bedrooms.
Mellow hues and light fixture.
Beautiful bed and bedding.
This bathroom is truly well-designed, from the choice of materials to its architecture.
Gorgeous cabinetry, wallpaper and floors.
This bathroom is chic and elegant. The double door leads you to the closet.
When designing a shower, make sure to incorporate different, but coherent materials to add interest, but maintaining a harmonious balance.
The wallpaper adds color to the neutral space.
I also love the sconces and crystal knobs in this bathroom.
Lovely medicine cabinet.
This is a great space for kids or guests.
This room is all about its architecture.
Spacious and with great storage.
This is a wonderful and practical layout for a guest bathroom.
I can picture this room being used by a teen girl. This is just perfect for that.
This quilt adds drama and beauty to the space.
Gorgeous bed and lavender wall color.
This small bathroom has a vanity with a great space that can be used to store towels or baskets.
Rustic meets modern!
The size of this bar is perfect.
The bar overlooks to a sport court.
The wood softens and make a cold basement feel warm and have personality.
The reclaimed lumber panel is perfect for a masculine basement.
Basement Guest Bedroom
I’m not sure about the decor here, but I like the high ceilings.
Bedroom & Bathroom
In case you’re wondering about the floors, these are linen patterned porcelain tiles. Now, that’s trendy!
Small, but perfectly done.
Oh, I would love to have this kind of space at my home! This is perfect for crafts or as a playroom.
Great color scheme.
What a fantastic mudroom! I love the built-ins and the linen patterned porcelain tiles.
The designer used 12X12 to create this effect.
