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!

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: Jewel Tones

In the fashion world, jewel tones are almost always on-point for fall. But this year we’re seeing a cross-over into the home. With emerald green selected as 2013’s Pantone Color of the Year, rich blues, purples, greens, browns, and rust oranges have infiltrated the home. Whether it’s a small pop in the form of a pillow, blanket, rug, or small decor like vases, or a large piece of furniture or paint on the walls, it’s easy to blend this trend into your existing home decor. Jewel tones provide a level of rich sophistication to any home.

Design Trends: Incredible Kid Spaces

Design Trends: Incredible Kid Spaces

When most of us were growing up, we were happy to have our own room. Happier still if we had a play/game room or additional space to call our own.

These kids truly have it all.

Customized, designer kids rooms are the stuff Pinterest was made for. Whether it’s a race car bed, jungle canopy, pirate ship in the clouds, castle retreat, or something else again, we can’t image your kids complaining about being sent to their rooms.

Design Trends: Masculine Spaces

Design Trends: Masculine Spaces or, Man Caves

In recent years, there’s been much talk about the designation of man caves, games rooms, and other decidedly male retreats within the home. The successor to the bachelor pad, the creation of these spaces serves to alleviate some marital strife. While the decor and design of the home is often given over to the female, the male sanctuary allows the man some control over his space and what goes in it. Your collection of hunting rifles? On the wall. That crude sign you’ve been holding onto since your college bachelor days? Hang it up. Your signed sports jerseys? Display them. A big screen television with surround sound to watch the game? Go for it. That cool beer bottle lamp you can’t even remember where it came from? Anything goes.

Man caves have many incarnations, from the more traditional garage or tool shed, to a private office or otherwise enclosed room to a basement or attic. These spaces allow for moments of solitude, escapism, or simply a place to relax or actively pursue hobbies.

Do you have a man cave in your home?
