Aly Velji at The Living Kitchen Show in Cologne, Germany – Highlights Part 1Posted by Blanco Canada on Feb 15, 2013 in About, Blog, Design Centre, Exhibits and Shows, Kitchen Trends, Showcase, The Kitchen Design Council, Uncategorized | 3 comments
Being at the show in Cologne really opened my eyes to the fabulous new trends that I really hope to see coming to Canada. One of the big ones, which is also my favourite and something I must incorporate into all of my interiors is the introduction of patterns and textures in a space. Now, for most, you would think this can be done through fabrics, which is very true. At the show however, I was seeing pattern and texture introduced in tile, flooring, hardwood, backsplashes and other wall coverings. I even saw it on kitchen cabinets and counter tops. I feel it makes a space feel more dynamic and put together. It is the last details that really make the space feel cohesive otherwise, it just looks bland and boring.
