It is the rugged natural edge of the vanity top that gives it a unique identity and allows you to create a custom bathroom that is truly exceptional. But it is important to ensure that the lighting around the live-edge vanity is absolutely perfect to bring out its very best and highlight all those knots, nicks and cuts that make it so very special.
There are plenty of advantages to embracing a black and white color scheme, and they range from simplicity and design flexibility to having a backdrop that need not be altered frequently just to fit in with the changing trends. Giving even the tiniest of powder rooms a spacious and charming vibe, we delve today into the beautiful world of black and white powder rooms at their mesmerizing best.
One of the colors that the world has been falling in love with all over again is orange. The last few seasons have seen homeowners and designers turn to this bright and vivacious hue that was shunned in the 90s as a symbol of the past. And unlike the ascent of gray to the top of the trend charts, this funky color divides opinions and evokes strong ‘love it’ or ‘hate it’ responses from everyone. If you are one of those who adores orange, then the powder room inspirations that we have on offer today will surely delight and enthrall. And if you are skeptical about orange, maybe it’s about time to give the hue a shot!
For those who follow interior design closely, the ‘Rule of Threes’ is something pretty familiar and basic. In case you haven’t heard of it yet, it simply states that any design element needs to be repeated three times to pull off both visual impact and balance. Most people do tend to us the rule of threes pretty blindly when it comes to pendant lights over a kitchen island. But there is more to the number of pendant lights that one must utilize than this.
There is plenty of planning that goes into the design of a modern kitchen. Most kitchen designs tend to continue the ‘contemporary’ look that home owners chose for their living and dining areas. This pretty much makes a sleek and stylish cabinet with glass-front the perfect options. Glass is an integral part of modern home design and with current residences using it in an extensive manner; it makes sense to incorporate cabinets with glass doors in your kitchen as well.
Black is not one of the first colors that come to mind when thinking about new kitchen cabinets. Yet it is probably the most natural fit in any contemporary kitchen with clean and well-defined lines and glossy, lacquered surfaces. Bringing together both black and white kitchen shelves is a classic design choice that will never let you down. A more daring approach to using black would be to couple it with dashing red that is equally audacious and prominent. Posh and urbane, black is for those who love a hint of minimalism in their kitchen.
And finally we arrive at red. Having recently flipped through some stylish retro kitchens, we can vouch for the fact that red is a great color for that look. Red kitchen cabinets are right at home in either a classic, retro setting or a classy, contemporary space. Most often, finding anything in between this spectrum can be a hard task. If you are choosing red for kitchen cabinets, keep the space as organized as possible. Black and white often tend to balance red beautifully and should give you the poise you are looking for!
We once tried to figure out all the shades of blue that can be used in the house, and as you might have guessed, the list is simply endless. Blue is an eternal favorite, and a hint of this beautiful color in the kitchen can have an uplifting influence on the ambiance of the room. Teal, turquoise, robin’s egg, navy and cyan; the list goes on and on. Blue kitchen cabinets are a welcome addition to any kitchen that seeks to embrace a coastal or nautical look. The color even works radiantly in a country cottage-style kitchen. Rejuvenating and energizing, white seem like a natural complementary hue for the eternal shades of blue!
Next, choose a table. Remember, a breakfast nook is supposed to be small and quaint, so you won’t need a table rivaling the size of your dining room set-up. Generally a nook is not a place for entertaining guests, so a small café table should suffice. Arrange two or three small chairs around the table opposite the window set. If you do not have a window seat, you may choose to add more chairs. However, remember that a breakfast nook can also be one-sided.
A nook is a cozy space designed to provide an intimate meal space for just two or four people. Generally a breakfast nook is tucked away in the corner of a kitchen or within a bay window. If possible, start by adding a padded window seat. This provides you with a great opportunity to show some personality and add some color to your space with an interesting fabric pattern and a few charming pillows.
