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.?
