A trend continuing from last year, wood and butcher-block countertops are still hot. It’s a beautiful look for the kitchen in addition to it being an amenity that home chefs love. If you’re looking for a sustainable countertop option, reclaimed wood is a great addition to the kitchen.
If you’re having an island built from scratch, consider adding a hideaway table to the design. The piece slides out for meals or when you need extra space for food prep, and tucks back in when not in use.
Any blank surface can become an inspiring spot with the addition of a mural. Stencil or handpaint a design on a wall or the kitchen island, or choose a scenic wallpaper to give the look of a mural without the painstaking painting.
That extra surface area is perfect for prep, but you’ll want it to be well-lit. Add a row of striking pendant lights to brighten up the entire kitchen.
Lovely details elevate the basic palette of this living room and make it something special: nailhead trim on the sofa, a golden arc lamp and a feathery fern.
If you decide that you'd rather invest in some money in outlandish chairs, then a very understated and classic dining table is absolutely the way to go. Dark wood is never a bad move!
You may not have space to expand or add a full island, so think about bringing in a table that can do double duty as a spot for prep and dining. Even a narrow console can work as a spot to set tools and ingredients on while you cook.
Picking a grey for your walls is rather like choosing a white paint – there are far more to sift through than you might ever imagine. To get the best look for your space, try out plenty of samples on your walls and see how they work in different lights...

Vintage metalwork supports and an imperfect, rustic wooden tabletop have combined to create a striking, unusual and eye-catching dining table here! We love the mix of different seating options too....
