A design discussion sponsored and hosted by Elmira Stove Works.
To color or not? That is the question. It is an age-old query in the design industry that receives varied responses from consumers to designers to builders. Benjamin Moore recently declared ͞Simply White as its Color of the Year for 2016 while Pantone provided a plethora of vivid tones for spring 2016 and announced pastel-toned Rose Quartz and Serenity as its Colors of the Year. It is no wonder the battle between color and neutrals is never ending. The questions provided below are designed to start a dialogue to determine where the kitchen industry stands currently, so we can predict, or perhaps just contemplate, where upcoming design trends may take us. Enjoy!
Q1: What is your favorite kitchen color scheme? What color palette would you choose for your dream kitchen?
Q2: Have you seen or noticed an impressive kitchen project recently? Tweet the photo & tag the designer / product manufacturers!
Q3: What was your favorite ͞wow factor of a past kitchen project? A custom colored appliance? A bold accent to a neutral kitchen? Let us know!
Q4: In your experience, what color, pattern and design rules are worth following when planning a kitchen?
Q5: Beyond color, how do you work shapes, curves and lines into a kitchen layout? Do you prefer linear or non-linear…or a mixture?
Q6: In 5 years, do you see kitchen trends more color saturated or veering toward achromatic palettes with subtle color included?
