MeredithTransitional Kitchen, Austin
What Houzz contributors are saying:
6. A new kind of tradition. While it’s no surprise that present-day kitchens are embracing simple design, Lockhart expects traditional spaces to hop on board too. “Even traditional kitchens may experience a slightly cleaner feel with bold lines and less fussy details,” she says. But Lockhart says it isn’t the end of traditional design as we know it. It just means homeowners will opt for fewer frills and more calculated, strategically placed details. “Traditional designs will always remain popular, but future renditions will be more deliberate with an emphasis on key elements like hoods, islands, cabinet crowns and so on,” she says.
3. Bertoia stool. The wire structure of these chairs is modern, but the fact that you can see through them means they can adapt to a space — they’re like the stool version of a chameleon, letting the colors and patterns of the things around them show through. You can also play with upholstering the seat cushions in more traditional fabrics to help them blend in even more.
