Design Trend: Kitchen Ladders

Today I wanted to talk about a design trend that is popping up in kitchen design and it’s the kitchen ladder. Now I wouldn’t say it’s a 2018 Design Trend, but I would say that I’m seeing ladders more and more not just in home libraries but in kitchens as well. You might think, “why would you have a ladder in the kitchen?” and in most kitchens it wouldn’t be necessary, but they prove very useful in kitchens with cabinets that go to the ceiling and where the ceiling is taller than normal.

Scroll through below to see some beautiful images of kitchens with ladders and maybe it’ll have you considering one in your next kitchen!

2018 Trend: Green Kitchens

A new year means new design trends and one design trend that keeps popping up is green kitchens! Although white will still reign supreme, green is gaining some traction. Last year blue kitchens were hot and this year I think they’ll get replaced with green. Now I know what you’re thinking…. “Green? Really? Isn’t that so retro?”. Well I’m here to show you some green kitchens that are very modern and now and maybe I’ll be having you change your mind! If you are thinking about updating your kitchen, then there are plenty of other things that you might need to consider changing as well. For example, you might be thinking about what is the best kitchen faucet? However, no matter what you decide to do to your kitchen, the decision is up to you.

If you don’t want to commit to a full green kitchen, incorporate open shelving to break up the design, or go with two tone cabinets using white on the top. You can also add in a different color island, such as black or wood to break up all the green.

How to Style your Mantel: Holiday Edition

Now that the Holiday season has begun, so has the decorating. Fireplaces often become one of the focal points for holiday decorating, so if you’re unsure how to style your mantel this season, this post is for you!

Step 1: Remove everything from your mantel and start with one main focal point, whether its a large mirror or a large piece of art. This will anchor your decor.

Step 2: Add height and texture. You can do this with a vase full of holiday branches, faux small trees, or a tall decorative item.

And Voila! Your fireplace is all styled for the holiday! An extra tip is to add a nice basket to the side of your fireplace to hold wood logs, holiday branches, or even an extra blanket. It adds an extra layer of texture, interest and height.

Enjoy your holiday decorating!
