Although we’re not quite seeing the leaves begin to change yet here in the Triangle, for all intents and purposes – fall is upon us. After a hot summer, we are looking forward to the crisp, cool days of autumn. Along with changing seasons come new trends both inside and outside the home, which is what we’re here for!
Due to its minimalist yet rugged style, industrial-style building has quickly gained popularity over the last few years. This style combines aspects of modern buildings with the beauty of classic style. Industrial style typically entails an open floor plan, minimalist elements, and rustic finishes. Warm, neutral tones are typically the top choice for homeowners looking to achieve an industrial style home.
Because the kitchen is viewed as the gathering place where families spend most of their time, we’re seeing homeowners design their kitchen to be the focal point of their home, and that means thinking outside of the box. Most Triangle-area builders have design studios with expert professionals to help you achieve all of your must-have kitchen dreams. Whether it’s taking your backsplash to the next level by tiling all the way up the wall, or if you desire an open, luxurious pantry, there are many ways to add eye-catching features to any kitchen!
As we’ve navigated through the pandemic, many of us have worked on not only making our homes more functional but also more personal. Just like clothing trends that come back in style, we’re beginning to see a lot of vintage decor styles resurging from the past. Whether that means the large candlesticks your grandma gave you for Christmas or an antique piece of furniture, vintage decor is a sure way to bring a cozy, homey feel to any space – especially if your home is new.
We’re seeing many people that are being drawn to natural textures and soft fabrics to bring a sophisticated, yet chic cozy feel into their main living spaces. Wool blankets or Sherpa pillows are just two great ways to bring natural textures into your home. Especially with the weather cooling off, now is the perfect time to switch to some of the chunkier textures in your home.
When you think of earth tones, throw out the misconception of neutrals in your head. When it comes to bringing earthy tones into your home, your options are endless. Rust red, forest green, and sea blue are all colors included in an earth tone palette, which has become increasingly popular in the last few years and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down if we’re taking any hints from seeing some of the 2022 Colors of the Year. We love how earth tones warm up any space, bringing a sense of comfort to any space.
