Is it just me, or does it feel like everyone is trying to remodel their kitchen right now? We’ve had tons of requests from clients lately regarding what cabinetry they should use in their kitchen instead of shaker-style cabinets to have it feel more updated and custom. Of course, there is nothing wrong with shaker cabinetry, as it gives a timeless, simple feel and works with many design styles. However, this style of cabinetry is commonly used in most builder-grade homes and we’ve seen it used over and over. It’s time for something a bit more unique to come into the mix when designing kitchens or bathrooms!
Mixed metals have been popular in the design world for a few years now, and this is a trend that we don’t see going away any time soon. Pairing different metals together can really add visual interest and contrast to a space. But, sometimes mixed metals can look a little tacky and over the top if they aren’t executed right. Have no fear, BANDD is here to share our tips for how to mix metals.

Although international travel is at a standstill right now, that doesn’t mean you can’t get your cultural fix through design.

Each year, Pantone announces their “color of the year” which is forecasted based off of the popular trends in all areas of design for that year. Back in December, they announced not only one, but two, colors of the year for 2021 – ultimate gray and illuminating yellow. This color choice has much more meaning this year than ever, as these shades were carefully chosen to express a feeling of strength and hopefulness after a rough, uncertain year. To me, the gray resembles a rather gloomy year, ya know, with the pandemic and all. While the sunshine yellow symbolizes a bright future ahead and a joyful, cheery outlook on the months ahead.
With everyone spending a lot more time at home, I think that we could benefit from incorporating these colors into our spaces, since this bold yellow sparks a feeling of excitement and joyfulness and the gray brings a calm, soothing ambiance. Considering gray is an easy neutral to work with, we’re going to be focusing on the trickier color, illuminating yellow. Whether you want to mix this shade in subtly or go bold, your friends over here at BANDD are here to tell you how you can incorporate this color into your home.
