Designer Tips...What’s Hot<br />

Why Not Navy Blue<br />

When we think of the new year, we think of<br />

fresh starts, and when we think of fresh starts,<br />

we think of fresh paint. There's just something<br />

about the new year that makes us want to repaint<br />

every wall in our homes.<br />

Deep hues can work wonders in a living<br />

room to create a cozy, inviting feel, and navy<br />

blue is a stylish choice. Use it as a backdrop<br />

for bold color and pattern or complement it<br />

with soft neutrals for a space that looks warm<br />

and harmonious.<br />

Blue tends to be a go-to color for bedrooms<br />

because it's an ideal shade for lowering stress<br />

and promoting mellow vibes. Since that's<br />

a feeling you probably want to experience<br />

throughout your home, why not consider the<br />

bold hue for your living room, too?<br />

The above quote is widely attributed to the ancient philosopher Socrates, but<br />

in reality, those are the words of world-class gymnast Dan Millman who wrote<br />

them in 2006. Since then, Millman has become a successful coach, self-help<br />

author, and lecturer.<br />

No matter the source, these words may never ring truer than they do at the<br />

launch of <strong>2021</strong>. This is a time to reassess and adjust.<br />

Housetrends, and all of the clients who support us, definitely went through<br />

changes in the past year. While our first impulse was to try to get back to the<br />

way things were, after some consideration we decided this was actually the<br />

right time to look optimistically forward. After a definite lull, builders, remodelers,<br />

and designers got back to their booming businesses as homeowners made<br />

plans to add function and comfort to their nests.<br />

We’ve decided to celebrate the boom in home renovation and this special<br />

<strong>Idea</strong> <strong>Book</strong> issue of Housetrends reflects that. In a subtle variation from our<br />

typical content, this publication focuses on how the home and garden industry<br />

is changing….what’s trending, what’s new, what there is to look forward to.<br />

Experts have shared with us what they see happening in kitchens and baths<br />

over the next three years. Color professionals have selected their hot hues for<br />

<strong>2021</strong>. And builders and kitchen planners are telling us that working pantries<br />

are definitely worth considering.<br />

We’ll be back with a more traditional version of<br />

Housetrends in March, but in the meantime, we<br />

hope you enjoy this special edition.<br />

Ranked #1 Locally by Coldwell Banker Heritage Realtors<br />

4 Reasons People are Buying Homes in <strong>2021</strong><br />

1. Record-Low Mortgage Interest Rates<br />

In 2020, interest rates hit record lows 16 times, continuing to fall further<br />

below 3%. According to Freddie Mac, the average 30-year fixed interest<br />

rate today is 2.65%. Len Keifer, Deputy Chief Economist for Freddie Mac,<br />

advises:<br />

“If you’ve found a home that fits your needs at a price you can afford, it<br />

might be better to act now rather than wait for future rate declines that<br />

may never come and a future that likely holds very tight inventory.”<br />

2. Working from Home<br />

Remote work is a new normal for many businesses. Many are discovering<br />

they don’t need to live close to the office anymore and they<br />

can get more for their money by moving a little further outside of the<br />

city limits. David Mele, President at Homes.com, says:<br />

“The surge in the work-from-home population has rewritten the playbook<br />

for many homebuying and rental decisions, from when and where<br />

to relocate, to what people are looking for in their next residence.”<br />

3. More Outdoor Space<br />

Another new priority for homeowners is having more usable outdoor<br />

space. According to the State of Home Spending report by HomeAdvisor,<br />

of the households surveyed, almost half reported spending 27% more on<br />

outdoor living over the past year.<br />

This is a trend that’s expected to grow in <strong>2021</strong> and beyond.<br />

4. Avoiding Renovations<br />

Many homeowners would rather buy a new home than go through<br />

the process of renovating. According to the National Association of<br />

Realtors (NAR), 44% of homebuyers purchased a new home to “avoid<br />

renovations or problems with the plumbing or electricity.”<br />

Depending on what needs to be addressed, today’s high buyer demand<br />

may make it possible to skip some renovations before selling.<br />

Many of these homeowners have prioritized buying over renovating<br />

for convenience and potential cost savings.<br />

Bottom Line<br />

It’s clear that homeownership needs are changing and more Americans are expected to move in record numbers this year.<br />

If you’re trying to decide if now is the right time to buy a home, let’s connect today to discuss your options.<br />

The National<br />

Kitchen & Bath<br />

Association reveals<br />

top trends to<br />

impact kitchen and<br />

bathroom design<br />

decisions over the<br />

next three years<br />

Recently, The National Kitchen &<br />

Bath Association released their annual<br />

Design Trends study. The report<br />

takes a deep dive into all aspects of<br />

both kitchen and primary bathroom<br />

design, with the goal of highlighting<br />

styles, features, materials and innovations<br />

expected to be most popular<br />

over the next few years. The survey<br />

included over 700 respondents from<br />

across North America. More than<br />

half the participants were designers<br />

and the remainder were architects,<br />

remodelers, showroom professionals<br />

and manufacturers.<br />

Here are some highlights from<br />

their research:<br />

It’s no big surprise that the COVID-<br />

19 pandemic will have a substantial<br />

lasting impact on kitchen and<br />

bath design. As homeowners spend<br />

more time at home, kitchens and<br />

primary bathrooms are getting larger,<br />

the volume of outdoor living projects<br />

is increasing significantly and there<br />

is a need for easy-to-clean surfaces,<br />

flexible living spaces and seamless<br />

technology integration for added convenience<br />

and peace of mind. ➻<br />

housetrends idea book <strong>2021</strong> 21

Aesthetically, design preferences in both the kitchen and bath will continue<br />

to be more contemporary and transitional in style, with the added influence<br />

of a new leading trend of “natural/organic.” This combination feels more<br />

European in style and scale, with clean lines, minimal detailing, the warmth<br />

and texture of natural finishes, and larger windows to bring the feeling of<br />

the outdoors inside.<br />

Traditional design, which consistently had been one of the top three<br />

kitchen and bath styles for more than a decade, is now anticipated to be<br />

one of the least popular. “We expect designs for both the kitchen and<br />

bath to continue trending toward a more modern, organic feel that is both<br />

streamlined and adaptable,” said Bill Darcy, NKBA CEO.<br />

“The kitchen has long been the heart of the home. But especially during<br />

the pandemic, it has emerged as the most prominent, multitasking room as<br />

well,” Darcy says. “We see this continuing with more open-space concepts,<br />

an extension into multi-season outdoor living spaces, larger kitchen island<br />

hubs and increased functionality and storage to allow homeowners to cook,<br />

eat, work, home-school and play, all in the same vicinity.” ➻<br />

Additional emerging trends for<br />

the kitchen include:<br />


Gas and induction cooking methods<br />

are nearly equal in popularity, with<br />

induction expected to replace<br />

traditional glass electric cooktops.<br />

Ventilation hoods will become the<br />

new decorative focal point in the<br />

kitchen.<br />


Finishes are matte and brushed in<br />

stainless steel or black. Functions<br />

include motion-controlled, handsfree<br />

or touch/tap. ➻

serious cooks. 3 A simple wave of a hand—<br />

or an object such as a pan—turns Kohler’s<br />

Space is dedicated for device charging and viewing. It’s important to have seamless video<br />

communication. Also, incase of an outage in your area, plan for an emergency power<br />

backup.<br />


Quartz, particularly in lighter colors, will continue to be the driving material for<br />

countertops. Backsplashes go large scale, featuring a solid slab or long subway tile.<br />

Complementary colors and materials mix on perimeter countertops and islands. ➻<br />

customized to run all aspects of life directly from the fridge. 2 The countertops and backsplash in<br />

this kitchen are in Cambria's Queensbury quartz. The pattern is inspired by abstract shapes that<br />

emerge from London's fog.<br />

IN THE<br />


There is increasing value<br />

on a more hidden, but quite<br />

powerful feature in the<br />

kitchen—connectivity which<br />

means your smart apps talk to<br />

your appliances. Wi-fi enabled<br />

appliances allow everyday tasks<br />

to be streamlined and keep<br />

errors to a minimum.<br />

“For example, artificial<br />

intelligence is used to inventory<br />

the contents of a refrigerator.<br />

Connected food apps then<br />

suggest recipes for dinners<br />

based on those contents,”<br />

says Ken Rieman with Custom<br />

Distributors. “A range can be<br />

connected with a hood to signal<br />

the start of the exhaust fan.<br />

A refrigerator can serve as a<br />

command center with a touch<br />

screen featuring Wi-Fi, voice<br />

activation, cameras and more.”<br />

Does “connectivity” mean<br />

there’s more to break? “It’s<br />

really the opposite,” says Darin<br />

Rieman, Ken’s brother and<br />

partner at Custom Distributors.<br />

“Smart technology monitors the<br />

performance of the appliance<br />

and suggests the most efficient<br />

settings. The most recent<br />

technology will be downloaded<br />

to the appliance to keep it at<br />

peak performance.”<br />

glass shower screen from Basco.<br />

Additional emerging trends for the bathroom include:<br />


In demand are roomier freestanding showers to accommodate two<br />

people with zero-clearance entry, integrated seating and grab bars.<br />

Surrounds are larger-format with fewer grout lines. Stylish linear<br />

drains work by allowing the water to flow into a trough beneath<br />

the shower floor.<br />


Similar to the kitchen, bathroom faucets are going toward voice-activated<br />

or hands-free, in black or nickel, matte or brushed finishes. ➻<br />

form of bidets and toilets with selfclosing<br />

Floating vanities come to the<br />

Wonderful<br />

to have<br />

Wines<br />

on hand<br />

A selection of six premium wines that<br />

are perfect for intimate dinners or<br />

long-awaited gatherings<br />

As the pages turn on our calendars, many of us are beginning to<br />

anticipate a shift from zoom happy hours to face-to-face gatherings<br />

that we’ve missed so dearly. With that in mind, there has<br />

never been a better time to consider taking your wine selection up<br />

a notch. Nicholas Gantenberg, wine director of The Wine Cellar at<br />

The Spicy Olive, suggests these wines that cover all the bases—red,<br />

white and bubbly. Prices range from $50 for most of the selections,<br />

to over $100 for the Cabernet. All are perfect to have on hand for<br />

celebrating the days to come.<br />

Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc<br />

Round, lush and vibrantly balanced<br />

across the palate. Richness and weight<br />

counterbalance bright acidity supported<br />

by flavors of tangerine, lemon zest,<br />

candied orange peel and sweet pink<br />

grapefruit.<br />

Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay<br />

Elegant tastes of apple and pear<br />

characters are balanced by fresh acidity,<br />

with pork, poultry, or creamy dishes.<br />

and fruity vanilla aromas. Fantastic<br />

champagne for cheeses, with a salmon<br />

dinner or any special beginning.<br />

We’re all crazy for a<br />

Charcuterie<br />

While traditionally a charcuterie is a collection of cold, cooked meats, that<br />

word—and the board it sits on—recently have exploded into a visual and<br />

gastronomical feast.<br />

When it comes to entertaining—small groups or large—it’s hard to beat the<br />

fun and flexibility of these platters. Portions can easily be scaled, and ingredients<br />

selected can be as affordable or high-end as you see fit. Here are a few guidelines<br />

for getting started. ➻<br />

housetrends housetrends idea book <strong>2021</strong> city 39

40 housetrends.com

Cheeses: Choose 4+<br />

Selecting a soft cheese, a semi-soft cheese, a firm cheese,<br />

and a blue cheese will provide for a balanced combination.<br />

For example: a brie for the soft, a Havarti or mozzarella for<br />

the semi-soft, and a cheddar for the firm selection. If you<br />

don’t care for “stinky” cheeses, consider one with added<br />

wine, herbs or fruit. Have fun with the cheeses. These<br />

selections seem to generate the most buzz among guests.<br />

Meats: Choose 2+<br />

Consider a reliable classic such as ham or turkey, then add<br />

a spicier selection or two—possibly pepperoni, salami,<br />

prosciutto, cured sausage, chorizo, or even bacon. While<br />

some of these meats can be a bit pricey per pound, you<br />

really don’t need a large amount of each. Guests will be<br />

enjoying tasting portions.<br />

Bread and crackers: 2+<br />

A hearty bread, such as a baguette, ciabatta, or nutty whole<br />

grain loaf, sliced into small sections is great for creating<br />

tasty masterpieces using the meats and cheeses along with<br />

a smear of jam, chutney or mustard. A few clusters of<br />

gourmet crackers work well for staging those smaller bites.<br />

Fruits: 3+<br />

Fruits are great for adding splashes of color to your board.<br />

Clusters of red or green grapes and berries add a visual<br />

punch. Apple slices might work well with your Cheddar<br />

cheese. Pears accompany your brie. Also consider dried<br />

fruits in the form of figs, cranberries or dried apricots.<br />

Spreads: 2+<br />

You should include at least one sweet and one savory<br />

spread. In general, a spicy whole grain mustard is always a<br />

good pick to satisfy the savory side of things, but a hummus<br />

or tapenade will work as well. The sky is the limit on the<br />

sweet side— anything from a local honey to chutney or jam.<br />

Final touches<br />

Small, but mighty details to add include pickles, veggies, and<br />

olives. Add in a variety of nuts—walnuts, cashews, almonds,<br />

pistachios, and pecans—there’s not a bad choice in the<br />

bunch. A sprig of rosemary, or another fresh herb add a<br />

perfect finishing touch.<br />

Assembly<br />

Find the right board to build your platters. Large cutting<br />

boards, marble slabs, slate boards or ceramic platters are<br />

great options. Start with one of your larger items as a focal<br />

point, place the items in order of biggest to smallest. Meats<br />

can be sliced, folded or rolled up in individual tasting sizes.<br />

Soft cheeses should be served with a spreader or butter<br />

knife. Hard cheeses can sliced, cubed, or served with a<br />

knife. The smaller items, such as bread slices, crackers and<br />

nuts should be in a couple different areas so that they are<br />

easily within reach. Mustards and jams can be placed in small<br />

ramekins scattered around the board with spreaders nearby.<br />

While assembly may seem intimidating, you really can’t mess<br />

it up. If you’d prefer to have a visual staring point, find a<br />

version online to use as inspiration. Enjoy!<br />

Aqua Fiesta by Glidden<br />

44 housetrends.com

It should come as no surprise,<br />

heading out of 2020<br />

and into a new and hopeful<br />

year, that experts in the<br />

paint and color industry have<br />

chosen colors for <strong>2021</strong> that<br />

are described with words<br />

and phrases including: inviting,<br />

tranquil, wellness,<br />

natural harmony, reflect,<br />

reset, and calming. Two soft<br />

watery blues suggest wellness<br />

with their spa-like style.<br />

An understated gray-brown<br />

has an anchoring quality that<br />

conveys a sense of comfort<br />

and sanctuary in bedrooms,<br />

living rooms and dens, or<br />

calm concentration in home<br />

offices–which are a definite<br />

space getting plenty of attention<br />

these days. See if you<br />

are ready to make a splash<br />

in your own home with one<br />

of these picks.<br />

Urbane Bronze<br />

2<br />

Bold and understated at the same time, Urbane Bronze from<br />

Sherwin-Williams is a warm, grounding shade of gray-brown<br />

intended to reflect our current need for serenity and stability.<br />

“The home is now the ultimate retreat from the world,<br />

and color is an easy and effective way to create a personal<br />

haven,” said Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at<br />

Sherwin-Williams. Gray undertones balance the earthy<br />

brown to create a dark, deeply comforting color reminiscent<br />

of burnished metal or timeworn stone. ➻<br />

Aegean<br />

Teal<br />

Benjamin Moore’s Aegean Teal marries the tranquil<br />

nature of blue with green's association with wellness,<br />

while a gray undertone keeps the color modern.<br />

Hannah Yeo, color marketing and development<br />

manager at Benjamin Moore, calls it "an intriguing<br />

blue-green that creates natural harmony and invites<br />

us to take a moment to reflect and reset." The color›s<br />

calming qualities make it an excellent choice for bedrooms<br />

or home offices, and its casual elegance shines<br />

on kitchen cabinetry or built-ins. ➻<br />

Pantone, which standardizes swatches for the design industry,<br />

“It’s a combination that speaks to the resilience, the optimism<br />

reimagine and reinvent,” said Laurie Pressman, vice president<br />

of the Pantone Color Institute. “Two extremely independent<br />

Aqua Fiesta<br />

2<br />

3<br />

For its first ever color of the year, Glidden has chosen an<br />

accent color: Aqua Fiesta. The Glidden team describes<br />

it as a “vibrant aquamarine that works best in small<br />

doses when combined with other neutral paint colors.”<br />

They suggest pairing this tropical turquoise with a cool<br />

gray to create an inviting spa-style in the bathroom. In<br />

bedrooms or living areas, the addition of cream-colored<br />

fabrics and neutral accessories helps soften the paint’s<br />

boldness.<br />

Working Pantry:<br />

an out-of-sight<br />

solution<br />

54 housetrends.com

If you're a neat,<br />

clean-as-you-go<br />

cook, you may not<br />

need a dedicated<br />

space for meal prep<br />

and staging, but for<br />

the rest of us, a<br />

working pantry could<br />

just be the perfect<br />

solution for keeping<br />

the mess at bay.<br />

No longer tucked away from the<br />

action, cooks and their kitchens are<br />

now front and center in living and<br />

entertainment spaces.<br />

No walls separate them from family<br />

members and guests as they enjoy<br />

their meals in a less formal dining<br />

area. That’s a big upside for the<br />

homeowner. The downside is that the<br />

kitchen—and any mess one might<br />

make—is visible to everyone at the<br />

table.<br />

Ranging from a walk-in room with<br />

abundant shelving to a decked out<br />

“messy kitchen” or prep space which<br />

includes additional appliances, these<br />

rooms provide the amenities to move<br />

unsightly kitchen tasks out of eyesight.<br />

Countertops and electrical outlets<br />

provide the working space to<br />

accommodate small appliances, such<br />

as mixers, toasters, blenders and coffee<br />

makers. ➻<br />

This expansive “kitchen annex” features a<br />

sink, an under-counter refrigerator, an ice<br />

maker and an abundance of open shelving<br />

which is accessible via a custom-built<br />

ladder. J&K Custom Homes photo by Greg<br />

“Once you get your<br />

food prep and storage<br />

areas in order,” says<br />

Erica Winchester<br />

from Closets by<br />

Design, “Cooking and<br />

cleaning will never<br />

be the same.”<br />

Amped up pantries might include a<br />

second refrigerator, oven, microwave or<br />

dishwasher. While entertaining, homeowners<br />

can clear the table and place the<br />

dishes in the pantry and move on to<br />

dessert with a clean backdrop. (If they’ve<br />

played their cards right, they could have<br />

one of their teenagers load the dishwasher<br />

out of sight while guests enjoy<br />

an after-dinner drink.) These pantries<br />

also work beautifully as a staging area or<br />

catering kitchen for parties.<br />

While it may sound like a splurge,<br />

incorporating a working pantry when<br />

building a new home or remodeling a<br />

kitchen might actually allow homeowners<br />

to cut a few corners. Since these areas<br />

are meant to be out of sight, owners can<br />

opt for more affordable options such as<br />

metal shelving and laminate countertops.<br />

And when small appliances and entertaining<br />

supplies—such as serving platters,<br />

barware and the “good” china—are<br />

housed in the pantry, the kitchen may<br />

not need as much cabinetry and countertop<br />

space, says Michelle Moran, partner<br />

at J&K Custom Homes. ➻<br />

Even if these rooms don’t include a<br />

lot of bells and whistles, the additional<br />

counter space alone comes<br />

in incredibly handy while hosting<br />

gatherings. If you want to take the<br />

party prep up a notch, this is a great<br />

spot for a including a wine rack or<br />

a wine fridge and possibly an ice<br />

maker which is an increasingly popular<br />

appliance for homeowners who<br />

entertain frequently.<br />
