Our motto at The Ace of Space has always been to “live a life well-curated” which translates to a life well-lived. I believe that interiors should evoke a sense of timelessness, as relevant ten years from now as it is today. One of the most important things I’ve learned as a devotee of design is that if you love something, there will be a place for it. And that applies to trends, there are some that are timeless, and others that have simply run of time. But, if you love it, embrace it.
“If you love it, embrace it.” – The Ace of Space
One of my favorite trends in kitchen design is the use of mixed materials. It layers the kitchen in warmth, a welcome departure from the classic all white kitchen. While white will always be the hallmark of classic kitchen design, it’s adding some unexpected pairings that make a home ultimately more inviting. The classic kitchen for 2017 has been reinterpreted for modern day homes and has been replaced by updated versions of country, basic British, and even Shaker.
And we’re sharing our favorite kitchen trend for 2017 (and matte appliances are a close second!). So whether you’re inspired to make a change or fall into the category of “design curious,” read on.
