And brown is the new black.
Black and white are still all over the place but the rules are changing on how they are being used. I know — try to keep up – if you can.
Take a look at this kitchen from homedit.com:
This is a typical country kitchen, and you would EXPECT to see white cabinets. These are a light gray instead and they work beautifully with the rest of the room. So if you’re tired of white, try something a little cooler.
Another place famous for using white is in the bathroom. What if we mixed in some gray there? Take a look at this bathroom from houzz:
We still have the usual white on top in the mirrors and upper cabinet, but the lower cabinets, backsplash, floor and walls are all done in gray. The end result is clean and fresh, but not cold.
What about the new trend in brown? Well, we’ve seen a ton of black and white rooms with colorful accent pieces. Here’s a gorgeous bath from myhouseidea.com that does it in brown:
Isn’t it beautiful? It’s much less of a contrast, and much warmer. Here’s another one from DIY Craft and Home Design:
Rather than introduce another color, they kept the accent colors the same as in the baskets and walls. Very simple.
So don’t be afraid to use colors in your home that suit YOU! I’d love to see what beautiful rooms you have created!
