Make a design statement with bolder elements of color on walls and in the kitchen. Sam mentions homeowners are craving a little bit of "pop" in their kitchens to make a gorgeous presentation within their spaces. A wonderful way to incorporate vivid pattern and color is bolder backsplashes of tilework paired with deep colored cabinetry in the kitchen. There are so many intriguing patterns, and we are delighted to share some beautiful examples from a few industry professionals who we admire.

A popular interior design trend we are seeing is more fabulous geometric patterns with richly colored subway and hex tiles. The industry is abundant with unique patterned tile, and there are so many gorgeous options to suit the personal design taste within your home.

Over the last several years, we have seen a large rise in white and neutral coloring. Although still popular, bold color and distinct patterned tile is on the rise. Backsplashes can expand from the countertop all the way up to the ceiling, and the bolder the better!

This same principal of going bold with patterned tile could also be applied to a fireplace surround. Not only will this create a stunning focal point, it is beautiful bold artwork built right into your space.

Particular tiles can even be adjusted and installed to a pattern that suits you best simply by flipping the direction it runs. Playful pattern is always a visual delight and instantly brings a backdrop of art into your space.

Another helpful designer tip Sam suggests is go for bolder color with deeply-hued cabinetry. Color palettes are transitioning from bright white to sharp blacks! Whether you choose the lower cabinets or both upper and lower to have a bold and appealing look, this is a great way to stay on trend with a bit of modern flare.

A great paint suggestion would be Black Berry by Benjamin Moore. This color is deeply saturated and will deliver that urban and edgy classy feel to your space.

The key to achieving a sharp and crisp bolder presence within a room is to create contrast! Keep your walls light and neutral as this allows for those bolder colors to be showcased with designer finesse.

Black is the ultimate bold, but if you are feeling it may be too much for your space, try a deeper forest green or an intense navy blue. Proufound color will give you the same dramatic effect without sacrificing style.

A fresh new idea this year is to ditch the traditional bold accent wall. Instead, Sam has a great tip to paint every wall in the room with a bolder "on trend" color such  as Benjamin Moore's Newburg Green! This gorgeous color will give you all the design drama you crave and will complement your space perfectly. Try rich coloring in a hallway or powder bath. Experimenting with smaller spaces first will lead to an easier transition when applying color to other areas of your home.

Trim and crown moulding can also be included with beautiful bold colors. Expanding the paint color to your mouldings will make an impressive showing that is sure to have your guests intrigued!
