Whether you are choosing the finishes for your home, or just like to look at pictures of beautiful homes, this slideshow is a fun look at what is trending now.   In the kitchen, black matte or brass fixtures are popular.  On the kitchen island, painted cabinets and wood or butcher block countertops warm up the space.

“I’m finding my vision for kitchens is less full upper cabinetry and more moments of beautiful tilework, art or even open shelving for decorative pieces.
