This Monday, We’re Mixing Things Up
“The trend this year is mixing unexpected materials such as quartz and wood.”
Mixing Stone and Wood in Design, by Element Surfaces
Since the beginning of 2018 the home design industry has experienced a rapid growth in mixed media design. We recognize the importance of countertops as a focal point of kitchen design, so this month we’ve crafted a beautiful Mixed Media element to help you visualize the way you can integrate multiple textures in your space, and take your design to the next level.
Zebrano is a perfect countertop to integrate a natural look and an organic warmth. Its soft tones with light veining are stunning. Torano‘s soft veining won’t feel too harsh in the space, but will allow it to blend well while it’s soft grey undertones will coordinate perfectly with the black hardware that we’ve chosen. In order to contrast the wood countertop, and tie in the Torano we’ve chosen a unique tile floor. Shape is very important to design because of the visual interest that it brings, and this floor does just that.
We would paint the cabinets in this space Silver Marlin (2139-50), it’s soft look adds calmness to the space, and it’s a gorgeous compliment to the Zebrano. Ice Mist (2123-70) will pair perfectly with the light green of Silver Marlin. This white wall color has a greenish undertone that will tie the cabinets in to the space.
We’ve chosen a sleek black faucet with a concrete sink to contrast the warmth of the Zebrano wood, and offer visual interest to the space. Sleek black hardware will pair well with the faucet and bring consistency to the space.
Lighting is the perfect way to add a touch of fun. We’ve chosen these gorgeous circular hanging balls that can be customized to complete your vision.
The ideal bar stool to tie this room together features a wooden seat and metal legs, bringing in every element of your design.
