Design Trends of Fall 2018

As summer fades, fall comes in with a breathe of fresh air. This fall season, we’re seeing lots of old styles brought back in modern ways. Time to renovate those vintage pieces of furniture you have and let them fulfill their purpose again!

Mid-Century Mod

We love a good blast from the past! In today’s designs, we’re seeing the simple, color block patterns that once raved during the 1950s- 1970s. This integrated design is now referred to as “mid-century mod” and catching on with a lot of millennials. Characteristics of it include clean, smooth lines, often shown through furniture and art. The furniture is also made out of wood, in a warm, almost orange tone. Fabric materials such as leather and velvet are mixed together. Primary colors are making an appearance through this trend too, and other bright hues like orange and green.

Notice mid-century style popular colors, lines, and wood tones of these furniture pieces.

Mixed Wood Tones

Mixing wood can make a home feel more comforting and add interest in a subtle or impactful way. You now see furniture with darker bases and lighter tops, rather than one hue all around. This technique is popular in country-chic designs, or warm nautical designs.

You can easily see these tones enhancing each other in the same space.

Gold Accents

If home buyers were to walk into a home 5 years ago, the brass hardware would immediately need to be “updated”. Now, it’s commonly used to accent white and add a luxurious feel to any space. From cabinet pulls, to lighting casing, to furniture legs, little touches of gold have become glamorized again! This came from the rose-gold trend, and is seen as very feminine.

Take note of the brass accents, from the vases to the fireplace pokes.

Updated Traditional

We rarely see the worn-down, dark rugs with a very symmetrical trellis design on them. But, we’re still seeing the same design, just in a new light! Rugs are used to ties colors together, or more modernly, stick out as the piece of art. The traditional pattern has been revamped with bright colors, or cool grey, with purposefully faded spots. You may see a patchwork pattern thrown in there too. Chandeliers with a new modern take are also being installed every day!

From rugs, to throws, to the chandelier!

Canal Contemporary

When the clients of the Canal Contemporary project reached out to the design team, they had a lot of ideas in mind for their 1960s river front property (that they grew up in!!). Furthest from their minds was a complete tear down and remodel. That is just what we did! Down to the slab, the project was a complete over haul!

Facade of the house we completely transformed!

What began as a one story, modest 3 bedroom, grew to this vaulted ceiling beauty! Taking 2 years to get from conception to completion ensured that every inch of the home was built with great pride and intent. Environmentally green products were used where ever possible and the latest technologies in construction were applied to ensure all codes and regulations were met, or in most cases exceeded.

The clients relied on the design team to create an interior that reflected their laid back lifestyle but would exude a sense of elegance and style. The design evolved to become a “coastal industrial” take off by using a mixture dark metals combined with white washed wood finishes. The aqua-blue color palette creates an open-airy feeling which makes the perfect setting for casual entertaining.

From first entry, beautiful hardwood floors run throughout the home with tile accents in the wet areas. One favorite design element is the marble herringbone floor installed in the master bathroom. Every room in the house has a view to the river, making for prime real estate when you see all of the plush seating. The design team also specified light-weight dual roller shades on the windows for maximum daylight and dolphin spotting.

To the client, the kitchen was the most important element because they like to cook. To create their dream kitchen, a lot of thought was put into every element. Cambria quartz and a taupe stone backsplash make the perfect backdrop for any chef, while a well organized cabinet system is enough for anyone to get excited about making family dinner!

Beautiful kitchen with plenty of room for circulation! Rich countertop adds a sophisticated addition to the space!

Some of the beautifully custom-designed elements in the home include the barn door, master bath vanity, stair railings and guest loft bar. Working with the builder, the design team and the client were able to create pieces that will begin and grow with the home.

Master Bathroom Vanity creating contrast with the focal while adding a unique touch to the space!

A bathroom is a special place in a house, where we renew ourselves and get ready for our routines. It is wonderful to start the day happy and full of energy after a fresh shower. Likewise, there is nothing quite like coming home from a long day and relax after a hot shower! Therefore, we were committed to dedicate this space to inner peace, serenity and positivity. Beauty lies in details; thus, to achieve a bathroom that evokes nature and positiveness, we carefully pick stunning natural stone tiles to create a focal point for the shower! We simply had to highlight our selection of clean and warming tones of ceramic tiles for the master bathroom.

We used a mixture of neutral tiles to create a natural feeling and the illumination highlights the stone and tiles! Dark Floor tiles contrast with the natural stone and resembling real nature!
