The days of metal monogamy are over. Metal mixing is chic, modern, and ideal for those who can’t just pick one. For the most cohesive look, select one metal for each kitchen category—hardware, faucet, lighting, and appliances.

More home-cooked meals mean more food and cookware that need putting away to keep clutter at bay. Larders are coming back as well as more creative storage solutions including larger structural spaces like walk-in pantries and butler’s pantries. And while open shelving is still popular and on-trend, expect to see a shift to closed cabinetry that extends to the ceiling for closed-door storage.

While marble in the bathroom isn’t exactly novel, large-scale applications are cropping up that are luxurious and full of high drama. Walls of beautifully veined stone that traverse from floor to ceiling, full-marble vanities and showers, and contrasting marble tile floors serve as a take away from the day’s stress to a favorite getaway (at home).

This popular feature in commercial and hospitality design has made its way to homes, and it’s easy to see why. Floating vanities and cabinets create a seamless and upscale look to any bath, and are made in a variety of styles, from modern to traditional. Their wall-mounted installation also opens up a room and creates the illusion of more space.
Purposeful comfort is at the forefront of the Japandi aesthetic, which combines Scandinavian utility with Japanese cozy minimalism (Japan + Scandi). It’s a mindset that emphasizes the investment in high-quality but fewer natural materials in soothing and subdued palettes. Think combinations of soft curves and clean lines—soaking tubs with simple silhouettes, handle-free cabinets for a streamlined look, textural elements, creamy whites, and warm woods.
