Trends. I don't love the word, BUT it is so interesting and important to know what's about to hit your kitchen this year! My advice in a nutshell is -- don't get too trendy. You want to love it for longer than one week. Have fun with it & let it reflect who YOU are -- trendy or not.
On that note, this is what 2018 has for us! I'll share my designer perspective on every trend under the coordinating photo. Oh! And click on the photo to see the source. Here we go!

I hope you enjoyed looking at these pretty photos & learning about the kitchen trends for this year of 2018! It's portraying a lot of unique design elements & I can't wait to see how it all enters the world of design!
I love the way My Domaine put it; "Personalize it," she says. "My number one rule about decorating for others is this: The client is first. Ignore the trends. What's in, what's out, what's on the way in, what's on the way out, it's all irrelevant. What matters first and foremost is what the client wants, needs, have, loves, feels good in, feels attached to. Work with that first, and then the actual space is second. Listen to your client, then listen to your house. It will tell you what it needs to feel good, and it's usually texture, white paint, some personal treasures, and incredible lighting."
