Creative Kitchen Storage With a Bold Color Palette

Posted by Steven Schrenk on Dec 2, 2016 10:51:59 AM

What do you give a homeowner who loves bold primary colors? A clean white canvas and ALL the cobalt blue. 

Located in beachfront Tequesta, Fl, Patty Anderson of Waterview Kitchens is used to designing bright coastal kitchens with a sea glass look and feel. But this Jupiter, Fl luxury beach condo packed the most color punch of them all. The ocean loving homeowner Gayle Fravel already had a bold palette of yellow, blue and red against crisp white. So when it came time to do a kitchen update her daughter Lindsey Diebler who is an interior designer said, “Mom, you have got to check out Vetrazzo.”

2017 Color Trends: Pairing BEHR Paint Colors for Recycled Glass Countertops

Posted by Steven Schrenk on Nov 4, 2016 10:00:00 AM

If there is one thing Erika Woelfel knows, it’s color.

For 20 years she’s been playing with color and building palettes, in graphic design, merchandising, color consulting, and for the last eight years, as the Vice President of Color and Creative Services at BEHR Paint.

She and her team design everything from the color card at the store and the home sets where the colors are showcased, to the actual paint colors you use, often test driving those colors in their own homes.

(Right now BEHR’s Polished Aqua lives in Woelfel’s kitchen where it’s paired with white cabinetry and earthtone granite surfaces.)

When Branding Drives Design, Color Leads the Way, and Sustainability Follows

Posted by Steven Schrenk on Sep 23, 2016 10:31:00 AM

Nowhere is color more important to design than in corporate branding. It energizes workers, inspires customers and reinforces brand identity. From coffee shops to financial offices, the color of surfaces underpins the look of a brand, and in some cases communicates the company’s commitment to sustainability.

When Quicken Loans opened a new office in Washington, D.C., designers went beyond red decor accents to represent the company. The nation’s largest home lender is probably best known as an industry innovator that approaches mortgages from the perspective of a modern consumer looking not just for a loan, but a new kind of loan experience.

When A Kitchen Design Is Too White, Add Color With Glass Counters.

Posted by Vetrazzo on Dec 1, 2015 4:19:18 PM

Although neutrals and greys may have been receiving a lot of attention in color trends lately, images of gleaming all-white kitchens and interiors continue to pervade the pages of design publications and more products are offering their own 50 shades of white. The thought of having one of these pristine, picture-perfect kitchens is enough to make most homeowners glaze over with envy, or for others it may make their skin crawl with all that nerve-wracking perfection just waiting for the kids to come home from school and break out their latest snack concoction. But what about those of us who harbor our own guilty pleasure of incorporating pops of color into our lives while embracing some of that bright aesthetic, are we doomed to suffer at the hands of these white-washers and fade into starkness, how do we add some life to a sterile palette?
