Elkay kitchens... global design influence

Making the Most of Your Kitchen for Holiday Entertaining

Pantone is the master prognosticator of color trends; both fashion and home design are influenced by the company’s predictions. Emerald green is a big one, but lots of saturated jewel tones are in the future mix. One blog cites the “on-going interest in food and nutrition…color nuances that emerge from the so-called super foods: acai, grapes and berries.” Pantone’s colors surely bring these healthy shades to mind. Check out Pinterest’s Colorful Bathrooms section for lots of great examples.

Luckily Lacoste is tuned in to color, a great example of fashion forming home design. Their towels are luscious shades that’ll spice up any bathroom.

Mosaic tiles come in rainbow shades of fall hues. Line the shower wall with a cascade of color, mixing tiles of various intensities of the same palette—plums, emerald greens, berries.

Just for fun (and something totally unexpected), hang a “Red Cumulus” lamp in front of the bathroom mirror—two for the price of one! ABYU (And Bob’s Your Uncle) Lighting makes it from red feathers with a white and red diffuser at the bottom.

Nina Tolstrup Seating using March Jacobs textiles was shown at this spring’s trend-setting Milan Furniture Fair. The exaggerated back is emphasized by the graphic, colorful fabric. A modern take on the old “slipper chair,” perfect to dress up any room in the house.

This paper clock is put together using hundreds of hand-rolled magazine paper beads, rhinestones, a quartz clock and an old record. Silver hands keep fine time, and the intense colors will be sure to wake you up when you check on the time

Tea lights are glazed in an array of the best colors of the day—or night. In a dark room, these little candles glow with the inside color, a dreamy nightlight in a color-filled bath.

This Greenwich Village townhouse, designed by John Beckmann of Axis Mundi architecture, may be in a prime NYC neighborhood, but the inspiration comes from abroad: perhaps a Turkish bath fitted with a Japanese inspired soaking tub?

Tiles are often used on floors, walls and even ceilings abroad—hot climates/cool tile. Certain patterns are “native” to Mediterranean countries. Think the Alhambra. Or Marrakesh. Or even the mosaics in Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice. This “Majolica” floor tile is made by Fap Ceramiche in Italy, but distributed world-wide.

Speaking of Marrakesh, this Moroccan inspired lantern is aptly named “Casablanca.” The pierced tin allows the light to form fabulous shadows. Hang one or group of different sizes and shapes to cast spells in any room.

Hermes, best known for its impeccable scarves, ties, clothing, bags and even saddles, also has a huge commitment to home goods. This collection is part of “les Necessaires d”Hermes” designed by Philippe Nigro. Definitely a necessity for any global room.

This dragonfly bowl was hand painted in Levanger, Norway by Kathrine Elverum. The black glaze on one side is balanced by the transparent glaze on the other. Norwegian with a slight Japanese accent, it’s a natural in any international setting.

Lacquer is an time-consuming, age-old technique practiced in both the far East and Europe; lacquered objects are meant to be heirlooms.. This elegant planter is lacquer over polished brass; use it to store towels.
