Trendspotters: Light Grey + Pale Wood

Welcome to Trendspotters. A round-up of interiors inspiration on a given theme, by your friends at White Black Grey. Oh, and spoiler alert: modern, minimal and monochrome are the order of the day, so no bright colours here #sorrynotsorry.   This edition, our theme is Light Grey + Pale Wood, inspired by the  STUNNING kitchen above by Zephyr & Stone, Australia.  Combining neutral shades with timber accents is a classic Scandinavian look, and for a more modern vibe, you can't beat going pale.

Waste Not Want Not: The Material Recycling Revolution

Whilst dreaming about my Grand Designs house (more on that here), I've been researching furniture and materials made from waste plastic and other waste materials, and it has been fascinating!    Kitchen in 'Alba' from Smile Plastics. Designed by Indie & Co.   Since 3D printing has become more accessible in recent years, all sorts of awesome projects have been popping up around the globe, using post-industrial or post-consumer waste.     This is the "Print Your City" project by The New Raw, for Coca Cola Greece. Using waste collected from around the city of Thessaloniki, the company created an installation of...

Our Favourite Kitchen Trends from Pinterest

Hello and welcome to the second post in our "Trends from Pinterest" series. The first one was about bathrooms, check that out here.    Image by My Paradissi.  Today we're here to talk kitchens. As always, monochrome is pretty much all we're interested in. You do have to be careful with going too stark on the black and white in a kitchen though, especially if brightly lit, it can end up looking a bit like an abattoir - yikes! So most of the looks we've gone for here are a little bit softer, more on the cozy side. We'd love to...
