The summer is winding down. The nights are cooler and it’s time to for kids to go back to school. This is the time of year we take a look inside our home. We have been outside all summer. The summer has flown by as usual, and fall is right around the corner. It’s a great time to start a home project you have been thinking about for years. Maybe a remodel, new construction, or just freshen up your interior before the winter gray sets in.
These are some of the trends you’ll see here in the gorge this fall/winter.
Metal finishes are a hot trend. Mixing them together is the biggest thing. You’ll see warm golds, brasses and copper accents. No doubt, cooler tones like chrome, nickel, and stainless are here to stay. A metallic purchase will always add a touch of interest to your home. It could be a brass tray like the one pictured below, a picture frame, votive’s, or similar items.
White, off whites, grays, and “grayge” (Gray/beige) are classics. You will continue to see these light and airy neutrals throughout 2017. Gray is the new white. Some popular colors by Benjamin Moore are, OC-52 Gray Owl, HC-172 Revere Pewter, OC-17 White Dove, HC-166 Kendal Charcoal, HC-173 Edgecomb Gray.
Clean neutral walls create a nice backdrop to add a splash of bold color. Brightly colored throw pillows or painted furniture are fun ways to add color, like the red chairs in the stylish kitchen featured below.
Outside in, Inside out.
One gorge trend is to seamlessly integrate open interiors with roomy exteriors. Large sliding doors are intended to be transparent moving walls. Large casement windows create a large unobstructed viewing of the outside. Adding multiple windows to a wall can create a “wall of windows” effect. This idea is taking full advantage of the amazing gorge views. Homeowners want to blur the lines between inside and out. This design can accommodate both contemporary and traditional designs.
Why not add some color to the windows? High contrast interior window casements are hot. Dark gray or black interior windows casements create sharp contrast. These dark colors paired with white or fir trim look superb.
