New Year Stone of the Season
From Fall to Winter and into the new year, Bianco Superiore Quartzite remains a hot ticket item when it comes to countertop selection. Although this material resembles marble in appearance, it is much harder and more durable making it perfect to use in high traffic areas without the worry of scratching and staining. The white canvas with gray and taupe veining brings a touch of modernity to even farmhouse and rustic kitchens and can easily be paired with several design elements due to the neutral color scheme.
2021 Pantone Dynamic Duo
The well-known color trend forecaster, Pantone, announced its Color of the Year for 2021. For only the second time in this program’s history, they brought together two colors instead of one. These top two spots are Ultimate Gray, a familiar neutral color, and Illuminating which is a lemony yellow shade that symbolizes hope for a brighter year. These two colors set the tone for the year by influencing what we buy from clothes to vehicles, to home design and decor. Pantone Color Institute vice president expressed that one color alone could not express the moment we are living in but that “the pairing of two independent colors helped to highlight how different elements can come together to express a message.”
Top 3 Kitchen & Bath Trends for 2021
Chic & easy to clean: As we continue to be mostly home-bound while COVID-19 continues, one's home is becoming more of a sacred place. Homeowners are investing in non-porous and low maintenance surface options for kitchens. Quartz is continuing to be a top contender because it’s a non-porous, engineered stone that is easy to care for without sacrificing the beauty of the stone.
Marble Marvel: Say goodbye to the all-white kitchens and hello to wood, nature toned colors, metal accents, and a modern vibe. Marbles that feature dramatic veining will be mostly desired this year to create a rich warm feel.
Mood-boosting jewel tones: Designers and homeowners are on the hunt for rich, saturated hues from jewel tones such as our Cosmopolitan and Tiffany Quartzites to earthy tones such as our Mont Blanc and Taj Mahal Quartzites that are sure to be the bold, statement piece of the home.
