Similar to a previous point using warmer metal fixings, I’m going to be more specific here in saying we’ll not only see warmer fixings become more popular, but copper in particular. Copper accessories, utensils and bold outlandish copper kitchen hoods will be in.
Again, we’re going natural black countertops here using black granite or quartz. Whether left glossy, or has a dull matte finish, in contrast with a cool white interior, oozes a timeless and clean cry of, ‘I’m not new, but I’m here to stay, and I look GOOD!’. It’s not a fresh trend but it’s popular and with anything popular, the trend isn’t going to expire without a fight. Still in for 2014: black countertops (leaning towards a matte finish).
This year there will be a shift toward warmer metal tones such as brass and copper, edging away from the brash, stainless steel and chrome colder metals. Iron and similar tones are making a come back, very much learning towards the timeless traditional.
