>2) Foodie kitchens. The growing interest in fresh organic ingredients and eating for health promotes cooking at home.
The Food Channel is inspiring more people to try different foods and entertain at home. For more on how you can make your kitchen more “Foodie Friendly check out these two blog posts:>
<3) Matte gold and brass metal – its been coming and now it’s here, not like you can go to Rona and just pick it up on your hardware run, it’s still a specialty product and needs to be specially ordered. Gold metal pulls, handles and faucets are sure to turn heads in your kitchen or bath.

There are lots of websites to see examples of these trends.
One of my favourites is Pinterest.
Open your own account and save your favourite things to your idea boards. When ready, share your board with me, email an invite. I will post to your board any time I find something I think would work well in your interior. We can work on your dream interior together online.
I know you are busy so this can be a tool to help you in your home improvement projects.
Another great website where you will find me is
Whole New Home, more on that in my next newsletter
