Green is the Flavor of the Year!

The color that is making the biggest impact in homes in 2021 is undoubtedly green and it is a color that works beautifully through fall months a swell.

White with Woodsy Warmth

Another color palette that is as popular in kitchen as it is in the bedroom or the living space, the wood and white look is one that you can easily fall in love with. A trend that has emerged in the late 2019’s, the color combination is still running strong and is showing absolutely no sign of slowing down.

Dazzle of Gold

Yes, we know that gold is not the first color you think about when it comes to kitchen hues. But you still would want to add a bit of golden glint and a dash of dazzle to this space this fall with kitchen fittings and faucets in brass. You can even turn to pendants and other smart finishes in the kitchen for an ambiance that is brighter and far more engaging. Just a hint of this metallic magic can make a huge difference in your modest kitchen.

Reliable Orange Goodness

Yup, we know this sounds a bit too clichéd, but the classics are so for a reason. Orange never fails to impress this time of the year and adding it to your eat-in or social kitchen ensures that you have a backdrop that is just perfect for Thanksgiving and Halloween parties as well. As is the case with orang every single time, you would want to use the hue in modesty and just a splash of orange is all you need to enliven the kitchen in neutral hue. Restraint coupled with the right style is the way to go while using orange in the modern kitchen.
