Each year, the National Kitchen & Bath Association reveals the latest standout design trends culled from the 2011 NKBA Design Competition. Representing what’s currently fresh and forward-thinking in kitchen and bath design, distinct visual elements and color, unique design details, personalized products and materials, and an architecturally artistic approach to proportion are among the strong themes seen in the nearly 500 entries received in the competition.
Among the specific trends NKBA identified from this year’s competition included detailed ceilings and tactile appeal through textures. These are definitely trends we are seeing here at Habersham too. Take this lovely kitchen design by designer Allison Belans, owner/founder, Dream Home Interiors, Inc.
She felt that Habersham’s custom-designed cabinetry was the perfect choice for a kitchen with 12-foot ceilings, a coffered ceiling detail that is 14 feet high, and a floor plan that opens into the family room, dining room and breakfast area. Because the kitchen is the center of this entire space, it allows for 23 to sit down and enjoy family, friends and great meal.
Belans looked to Habersham’s rich finishes and hand-painted elements to help create the actual and implied textures that truly complete the look. “One of the architectural points that I love the most is the massive mantle in the kitchen that features exquisite hand-painted Lombardy Art by Habersham. They offer such unique touches, color palettes and custom-crafted artistry that it’s often hard to make up your mind,” says Belans. “Habersham’s options are amazing. And there’s always something to match the sensibilities of my clients.”
