KITCHEN LOVE

There is a growing trend in kitchen design ruled  by minimalism and innovative storage solutions. Unlike classic kitchens, the modern versions usually do without top cabinets or simply replace them for some sort of open-shelf unit. This serene kitchen, designed by Danish company Kobenhavns Mobelsnedkeri, is a gorgeous example of this trend. I do love the idea of a simpler kitchen, although I know it's not optimal when space is an issue. Are you loving the trend, or not so much? Have a phenomenal weekend!

DRAMATIC AND SEXY

There's always room for dark and handsome interiors in my book. Although some people might feel a dark color palette can make a room look gloomy and smaller, this sexy French home makes a good case for the opposite. The secret is in mixing different shades of gray and black to create dimension and interest in every room. In this particular abode, the use of white, cream and wood accents add the right amount of light to complement the stunning dark hues. Talk about drama!

DANISH DESIGN TO LOVE

I can already feel the crisp air of Fall in the mornings and the bright Summer sunlight has started to transition into a softer and more subdued color palette. And with it the Autumn/Winter 2013 home collections have begun to show up in stores and online. One of my favorites this year is from the Danish house Ferm Living. Their collections is a bit edgier than in the past with materials such as brass, wood, leather and marble in the mix. Ferm Living's iconic geometric shapes still play an important role for Fall and Winter but with a few new surprises that you will love. These are some of my favorite pieces from their catalogue, but there are plenty more to drool about in their look book. Trust me, it's worth browsing through just for their gorgeous vignettes. Enjoy!

A SPLASH OF COPPER-TONE

Metallics have always played a strong role in home decor, but the on-trend metallic for the incoming season seems to be copper. This precious metal has evolved from a patina-like finishes to a very sleek and shiny surface. Thanks to its new renaissance, I've been seeing an avalanche of copper furnishings everywhere I go. From kitchen appliances to trendy bicycles, the selection is quite extensive. Its beautiful color makes it easy to mix with other natural materials and works beautifully with pastels, grays and earth tones... and of course, black. Now, there's no need to go crazy with this trend, adding one or two touches of cooper in your decor will be just right. Here are just a few of my favorite picks from the trend. (Love the bike!)
