The colour of the year as announced by Benjamin Moore for 2019 is metropolitan AF-690, a stylish grey with cool undertones. This colour is understated yet glamorous which creates a soothing, impactful statement in any room
Wall and ceiling detail is something I also see emerging even further in 2019. People are looking to make an impact and a statement on their walls and there is no better way than with wall treatment, statement baseboards and ceiling details. Metrie has great options and styles to fit any space and I have a prediction that their New Traditional line will be hot in 2019
Shopping Canadian, the idea of supporting local has become even more important. Done are the days of supporting off shore products. We want to know where our products are being made, and by whom. We want faces to the products we are supporting and a story to the brand. (alcornhome.com)
2019 will see more flooring in lighter tones. They hold the key to the pared-back simplicity of Scandinavian style. The lighter colour also also brightens and freshens up any space with a clean simple style. Recently I worked with Neue Floors who have stunning flooring options. I chose their Crans Montana which is a European White Oak.
Heading into 2019 people are looking for ease and simplicity. Household items that take the guess work out of everyday household chores are top of mind. Whirlpool has hit the mark on this one. They have a 24-inch washer and dryer that is all-in-one which helps you do laundry in fewer steps and with a smaller foot print in your home. It’s WiFi-enabled with smart features so that you can access from anywhere on your smartphone or tablet using the Whirlpool App. Looking for a little more laundry capacity? Whirlpool is releasing a 27-inch version of this model in March 2019.
Soft hues and beautiful countertop appliances continue to be the latest trend in the kitchen. Whether it’s a mixer, blender or coffeemaker, a soft pop of colour turns any countertop appliance from a kitchen tool to a decorative statement piece. The Limited Edition Heritage Artisan® Series Stand Mixer in Misty Blue hue is a soft blue with a hint of green inspired by the first KitchenAid Stand Mixer colours ever introduced, in celebration of the brand’s 100 year anniversary. Available at KitchenAid.ca
The trend is to create a light & airy space. If you don’t want to cover your entire windows to get privacy, and keep as much natural light flowing in as possible, Budget Blinds’ exclusive Trilight honeycomb shades allow for Top Down / Bottom Up operation that is also cordless, so there's no messy strings (www.budgetblinds.com). It’s the perfect solution to get the best of both worlds.
Happy 2019 everyone!
