  1. Colour in the Kitchen

While white is classic and safe, this year homeowners are leaning towards colour in the kitchen. Adding an accent island in greys or blues, or even bringing in different wood tones like mahogany. Whichever you decide designers are encouraging big risk-takers when it comes to colour.

3. Area Rugs that stand out

Rugs that blend into the floor are out, artwork rugs are in. Try buying a rug with bold colour, different textures and work with the size. Fill the entire room or get a very bold but smaller rug for a great conversation piece.
