Design trends: nautical stripes, contrasting stair cases and layers of lighting

.

Focus on a Center Piece

YORKVILLE PENTHOUSE I by Cecconi Simone.

Create a focal point, such as a piece of art, a fireplace or even a statement light fixture. All other pieces in the room should be smaller, complimentary fixtures—not to take away from the star of the show.

Nothing says summer like nautical striped linens!

 

Contrasting Stair Cases

Somerset Cottage

Refinish your old staircases with a bold black and white contrast. They’ll look better than ever!

 

Bright and Bold

Roundhouse open plan kitchens

Sprinkle brightly colored pieces in a dark, contemporary room for a bold appeal. 

 

Layers of Light

Sea Cliff Hideaway
Add layers of lighting to your kitchen: Highlight the backsplash and cabinets to add volume and depth normal overhead lighting couldn’t achieve.
