Q:  What is your favorite trend at the moment?

A: It just so happens that my favorite style is actually trending as we speak.  Straight lines and natural materials make for a warm, contemporary environment that appears sleek, sophisticated and clean.

The combination of flat surfaces in solid colors with natural uneven surfaces makes for a great mix when designing a kitchen.  Stone in various colors, the utilization of wood for counter top materials and perfectly painted finishes done so well in Italy make for a fantastic combination.  Stone in various colors, the utilization of wood for counter top materials and perfectly painted finishes done so well in Italy make for a fantastic combination.

 

Q: What type of budget do clients need to achieve this look?

A: This look can be accomplished with a moderate budget, but is limitless in possibilities! Offering numerous domestic and European manufacturers at varied price points, we can ensure that the outcome will be beautiful no matter what the budget.

 

Q: What room can you use this trend in?

A: This contemporary trend can be used in every room in the house… from the mud room to the attic and everywhere in between.

It’s nice to see this trend finally peak here in the US. I was born and raised in a modern environment in the Netherlands and moved here at the age of 17. This is the first time since I moved here that I have seen the contemporary trend become so popular.
