A large contemporary kitchen features a Calcutta marble waterfall kitchen island seating five white and gray upholstered counter stools sat on blonde wood floors lit by two nickel and glass diamond pendants hung from a tray ceiling.

The kitchen was remodelled and a long island bench installed to direct the eye through the house and out to the sunny courtyard.

No uppers. Marble waterfall island. And is that a pull out, eating bar made of reclaimed wood? I hope so, cause I totally need it!

The MR Direct TruGranite sink comes in many different shades, all of which have the same exciting features; not the least of which is its TruGranite composition. A balance of 80% quartzite and 20% acrylic, makes for a very dense, nearly impervious substance with a smooth non-porous finish that provides the sink with anti-bacterial properties.

Design Trends: Chevron Tile Layouts

Chevron tile is one of the most popular design trends for homes at the moment.  Chevron is a zigzag pattern that comes to a sharp point: imagine the letter “V” on repeat. The neat way the tiles fit together, the sharp central line where the V meets, and the textured zigzag horizontal pattern all work together to make this tile pattern super chic. Using slightly contrasting tiles colors to subtly define the zigzags, or blending block-color tiles with wood-look ones are very on-trend ways to work this look. Chevron tile can be used in flooring, on a backsplash, in rugs, or even on your walls!

Design Trends: Black and White

The black and white color combo is often associated with clean lines, simplicity, and sophistication. Black and white pair well together in spaces, but can sometimes come off too stark and boring. When composing a palette of black and white monochrome, it’s important to mix in a few complimentary patterns to keep the space interesting. Symmetry in furniture or object arrangement helps to keep it grounded. To keep the room from seeing too cold and uninviting, use some plusher, more inviting fabrics like velvet, knits, wool, and faux furs.
