Interior design from the 1960's and 70's is hip now. The newest trends  feature anything in acrylic: tables, legs, trays etc. Furniture finishes in white lacquer and gold are strong contenders. Slender lamps and lower chair backs complete the look. See below... 

Large stylized gold ferns in the wall art create drama for this dining room by Williams Sonoma. Low backed dining chairs, acrylic table legs and the combination of chrome and gold is refreshing and bold. Very Mod! 

Acrylic is everywhere as furniture and accessories and often combined with glass. Very 70's glam.  Collins bench  by Kravet.

I love this brass cube in "gold" by Interlude Home. It can be moved around where needed as an extra table or as a piece of sculpture.

The Campaign look is back and is especially appealing in white lacquer, with gold handles no less! Perfect as a night stand or as an end table in the living room. Savoy by Kravet

The Trend Setter table lamp by Currey is a fresh new interpretation of the Sputnik light. So original! The slender legged dining chair by Schumacher is a reproduction from a 60's chair my mother used to have. So I am partial to it. Another piece in white lacquer is the 70's Geo cube by Miles Redd for Schumacher. For that 60's look you can't miss with the tripod floor lamp in metal. By Currey.

Hang groupings of pictures in different sizes for the most up to date way to handle a large wall. It's more work but so much fun. Makes a real design statement. Furnishings by Hickory White.

1. Kitchens are more sleek and pared down for both contemporary and traditional style kitchens. Bold lines and less clutter are the norm as seen in this modern, euro kitchen by Thermador.

2. The most popular color for kitchens today is white, but soft pastels and grays are new and fresh.

3. Stainless steel range hoods are eclipsing built-in  wood mantle hoods, providing a new design element.   Kitchen by Wonderful Kitchens 

4. Hidden or streamlined appliances continue the theme of less clutter

5. And we are seeing more drawers and less cabinets for ease of use.

6. Induction cooktops offer the very newest in technology for the cook. They are more efficient, flexible and powerful. Thermador

7. Deck mounted pot faucets save time and are easy to use. Kohler 

8. For traditional kitchens where a large sink is required, the farmhouse sink is the way to go. Its adds an exciting new design elementwhile reminding us of the past. Kohler.

9. Under counter refrigeration units with softclose drawers provide a new level of luxury. Thermador  

 

10. Kitchen design utilizes open shelves in combination with upper cabinets to create a more open, spacious feeling. Kitchen by Thermador.

11. LED under cabinet lights are an efficient and long lasting way to provide task lighting for food prep and clean up. 

 

12. Porcelain "wood" tiles in 6" x 36" sizes are the hottest floor covering for kitchens now. They are inexpensive and easy to clean, and they look great!
