WHAT’S NEW / TRENDING? Blue & Gold!
Blue and gold is a classic color combination, but it’s a relatively new one in our kitchens and bathrooms. Cobalt blue cabinets paired with gold-colored faucets and hardware give these spaces an elegant edge.
Painted vanity cabinets from reputable cabinet makers and manufacturers will withstand the slightly moist environments found in bathrooms and are a worthwhile investment.
Although polished brass has been a steady standby for years, there are new finishes in the gold-toned family that include brushed, French, satin, and polished golds, brasses and bronzes.
Just a little word of warning — gold colors and finishes from different manufacturers may not match. That’s not necessarily a bad thing! A little variation in color and texture can add interest, but be sure that it looks intentional and not accidental (not all design accidents are happy ones!).
A white countertop is a classical complement to our blue and gold combination. A porcelain or fireclay sink-top provides a clean and crisp white surface, while natural stone or quartz offers a softer white with veining or subtle flecks of color. Porcelain tile slabs are a newer option with stone-like looks and quartz-like durability. Gold-colored veining or flecks in the stone, quartz or tile slab that match your golden faucet would look fabulous!
