For fall and winter 2011/2012 the color choices are bold and expressive. Bazzèo, a leading U.S. maker of sustainable cabinets, just unveiled its color trends for the coming months: As seen already for the fashion and clothing industry, the trend is bold, colorful and lively.
Bold infusions of bright hues, vibrant as fall foliage, the trend of true colors will last beyond the fall season.
Ranging from pop art inspired hues in yellow and orange to the palette of scarlet reds and dark purples, the choices are a long way from the neutrals the industry has seen for the last year.
A new trend as well, is a large spectrum of indigo blues in tints ranging from turquoise to pale aqua (see photo above). “Blue in a variety of tones and shades has had a huge come back due to the popularity of nautical and ocean inspired design,” says Iko Aviv, president and principal designer of Bazzeo, when presenting the fall trends earlier this month. “At Bazzeo we started to combine shades of blue with white, already last year, as it gives kitchen design a fresh, clean and appealing look; now we see customers wanting more color in their living environment/ kitchens, and the trend of colorful cabinets with white counter tops is taking off.”
Consumers are particularly interested in making a fashion statement with their kitchens. The kitchen is open to the rest of the home and functions on several levels—from food preparation to social interaction, from entertainment center to living room. Bazzèo recommends that you blend your kitchen seamlessly into the living areas of the home, striking a balance between form and function. Keeping in sync with color trends all the time is part of the commitment to the ever evolving living environment.
Kitchen design is no longer just about form; it has transformed into a process that integrates technology, function and color aesthetic into a single interpretation, the company believes. If you are want to provide green cabinetry in your homes, Bazzeo is a solid choice: The company manufactures its line of cabinets in Secaucus, N.J., using recycled and regenerated wood from certified resources as well as the use of non-toxic laminates, aluminum, glass, and technical veneers. The cabinets may contribute towards specific credits under the LEED criteria.
