11. Location: Los Angeles, USAWhy we love it: Case in point.
Bold colourArt Deco-style interiors were anything but boring. They were brought to life with splashes of vibrant colours in bright and exotic shades. Popular hues included bright yellow, peacock blue, turquoise, emerald and red. In the kitchen, colour was sometimes introduced in the splashback, with the use of high-gloss colourful tiles in geometric shapes or with exotic flora and fauna patterns. Highly contrasting colours such as green and orange were often used together to create maximum impact. Designer tip: If bold colours are not typically your first choice then consider introducing colours in the form of easily changeable accessories.
2. The benchtopWhere: In the kitchenWhy: The use of black marble in a contemporary kitchen can provide a strong design focus and also allow complementary fittings and fixtures to stand out. If used as a benchtop, you can then surround black marble with a variety of different materials, such as timber, tile or other metallic fixtures, as well as colour, contrasts and textures, as seen here.See more on the kitchen marble trend
1. Precious metalsMetals and metallics have been hugely popular over the past few years and it looks like our love affair with chic finishes and hues isn’t over just yet, says interior designer Anne Ellard of Anne Ellard Design. The Queensland designer predicts that warmer metallics like brass, gold and copper will continue to outshine cooler metals such as silver and stainless steel in the kitchen next year, as they “add a sophisticated warmth to a space.”
