Whether your kitchen is New York City closet sized or vast and expansive, a skillful use of color can make it pop with interest or blend into adjacent areas. Bold colored cabinets are certainly a commitment to say the least but also remember that a little goes a long way.
Our annual Kitchen & Bath Industry Show known as KBIS was held last month in Las Vegas. I’m hearing that attendance was much improved over the anemic showing of the last couple years. This show is traditionally where new products and design trends for the kitchen and bath are introduced to the world at large. Here are some of my new faves from the show!
One of the most exciting debuts this year is Bornholm Cabinets, conceived of and created by fellow blogger Susan Serra and her daughter. They are a couple of smart cookies who know what’s both hot now as well as basic and unique enough to be timeless. The line is Scandanavian inspired but American made. Simple yet elegant and designed to blend into and enhance any environment. I think we’ll be seeing more of this. You can see more here.
I also love this beautiful bit of black.
Yes it’s a toilet! When it comes to commodes the Japanese have definitely got it going on and this example is no exception. We all know what a “smart” phone is, well meet the “smart” toilet! The REGIO by Inax features a sound system, heated seat, double power deodorizing, automatic seat and flushing, and dual nozzle bidet. Geez, what more could you want? Oh, yeah it’s also environmentally responsible. Check it out here
Here’s a new fun way to add a little glow to that backsplash area between your cabinets and counter top.
The °eluma RGB DecoSplash illuminated backsplash is the first fully customizeable color changing LED backsplash. You can change your color as you change your mood from fuschia to lime green! This LED light is dimmable and you even have your choice of decorative inserts. Find out more here.
Dark rich wood finishes continue to be a popular choice. I just love the Asian vibe (of course!) of this kitchen by Wellborn Cabinets.
