With soooo much on the market - with so many styles and tastes - it can be hard to decipher what really should go together in a home. I believe there is an adage with many American tastes...more is more. The more colors, materials and textures - blending Italian ornate with American colonial etc...it can make one disoriented to say the least. However, I do see a back lash to that - with kitchens done in white on white on white with that added gray. It is beautiful...but safe...and it's what every Jone's is doing lately.
If I did, I would not be doing Pavé at all...but importing white tile and white stone from China. In the end...for there is that...we leave a design legacy for future generations. There is a design legacy in France, in Italy, in Morocco...but what is it in America? We are of the people who can meld and recreate - like mixing old world Europe with modern cool...now that I love and I term it frankly the 21st century aesthetic. There is nothing like the sleekness of cool metal next to old wood and terra cotta tile....It's also called Industrial and you can find some wonderful examples on Houzz under that style rubric.
