January 20 at #KBtribechat – Colors for 2021

A design discussion!

Hosted by Amy Wax of Color 911

Amy’s #KBtribechat Questions:

1.) The Black color trend started last year. Architectural Digest featured an article saying black kitchens will replace white kitchens in 2021. Do you see that happening?


2.) I’ve read people will not be holding back when it comes to colors and patterns in interior design this year. Many see the color trends of 2021 as exuberant and bold.  How do you see this influencing kitchen design? Do you see this as a passing trend?


3.) How has our spending so much time in our homes influenced design?


4.) More people are finding comfort in the color palettes of nature: hygge. How can we apply this color trend to kitchens and baths? 

5.) As 50 years from the post modern movement, some materials are coming back, glass block etc. Do you see this happening? In what way?


6.) Seeing gutsier personal expression as a design trend, how can we  apply this to kitchen design? For examples murals, personalized elements, etc. 


7.) Sitting in the kitchen is a common Zoom background. Colorless kitchens are boring and colorful kitchens can be distracting. Does zooming in the kitchen influence your design?


8.) In 2020 we added many features to our home, kids learning spaces, home gyms, better home offices. What have we added to kitchen design? 


9.) As we are rethinking the use of our spaces at home, do you see kitchen features installed in other rooms? Fridge in a home office? Full home bars? Cabinetry & counters in kids play area, etc.?

Out with the old, in with the new. As homeowners continue to spend significant time at home adapting to work, school, and leisure, it’s no wonder the remodeling market has not only bounced back… latest research shows continued growth through 2021. Material consideration and space selection, design harmony, color, project timing, and client rapport are vital to successfully “reimagining” a space. Let’s discuss trends in residential remodeling.


Please share your projects, your photos, and your ideas. We can’t wait to discuss inspired remodeling… together with you at KBtribechat!

Our KBtribechat questions:


1.) Let’s kick things off on a serious note. Like most sectors of the economy, the home improvement segment has been affected by the pandemic. In what ways has the remodeling industry been permanently changed?


2.) Business. For remodelers, firms or independent designers: What’s the first question you ask a potential client who’s looking to remodel?


a.) Flashback to 2019…. Was it the same first question?


3.) Emerging Trends in Luxury Kitchen Design. What trends in luxury kitchen & bath are you most excited about for 2021+? Share photos and specs!

5.) Let’s talk interior trim detail, specifically craftsmanship & style: How can transitional trim create visual interest through proportion? Does proportion = beauty? Is less always more?

July 15 at #KBtribechat: COLOR CUES – Colors influence in our lives!

A design discussion

Hosted by Paula Kennedy, CMKBD, CLIPP, CACC

Add a little bit of body text-11

 

Given how much we are all staying at home now it has been fascinating watching the DIY projects shoot through the roof. I would love to see some statistics on DIY paint purchases.

Most of us have been through many Color 101 classes and trend reports. You likely have a basic understanding of hues, tints, shades, and complementary or tertiary color palettes, along with what this year’s color of the year is. Once I received my certification as an Architectural Color Consultant my perspective of the world of color was blown away! As interior designers in the kitchen and bath industry, we know we can’t select wall/paint colors in a vacuum from ALL the other finishes that we specify every day.

We must consider ALL the elements! Outdoor landscaping, reflection, region, window direction, time of day, CRI, CCT, wood undertones, metamerism . . . and the list goes on. How can we best support the vision of our aging population, or support the mental wellbeing of our children? Do we want to stimulate our appetites in our kitchens and dining rooms or decrease our appetites?

“Color is the REACTION that light is having to an object or within a space, without LIGHT there is no color.  The type and amount of light affects the perception of color.”

No color is inherently wrong, although its amount, intensity, or depth may indeed be wrong for the LIGHT of a space. By manipulating the variables that create color, any number of combinations can be achieved that will bring life and light to the architectural space.

Let’s break it down by room or “issue”.

QUESTIONS:

Q1: Considering Biophilia and Wellness trends, how can we utilize color in the home to help bring the outdoors in, to replicate and mimic nature inside the home?

Q2: Thinking specifically about our ever-growing Aging in Place population, how can we utilize color and color combinations to aid independent living?

Q3: In understanding how to best support our children’s wellbeing what are the best colors for their bedrooms?

Q4: Now that we are all working from home what colors best support productivity while also reducing stress in our home offices?

Q5: What are the best colors psychologically in supporting the occupants of our kitchens and dining rooms, which must support so many different activities from morning till night?

Q6. In thinking about the various activities in the bathroom what are the best colors
