Your Guide to Today’s Rising Home Trends

As Heidi Klum would say just before crushing the dreams of some fledgling designer on the Project Runway catwalk, “One day you’re in, and the next day you’re out.” As it is in fashion, so it is in home design. Some trends endure (we’re looking at you, stainless steel), some evolve and some are forgotten as quickly as they’re taken up
Here’s what our Drees Homes design experts are seeing as today’s rising trends in home design:

Trend 1: A Color Expansion at the Heart of the Home


While white cabinets are still a lasting favorite, we are starting to see new colors in the kitchen. You’ll start to see pops of blue and green that compliment an earthy style. Most notably, the island, backsplashes and décor accents are easiest places to infuse meaningful and memorable color.

Trend 2: Introducing Relaxed Organic


A more relaxed organic look is starting to creep in. Whether you consider your style casual or sophisticated, organic touches of natural wood, earthy textures and clean lines is going to mix well and elevate your look.

Trend 3: Mixed Metals – A Must!


Gone are the days when all of your lights fixtures, plumbing, and hardware accents must match. We are starting to think of these pieces more like jewelry and want them to shine! For example, try mixing brushed golds with bronze, or a matte black with chrome. This dynamic and variety creates layers of interest in the home.
