Ever heard the saying, ‘the kitchen is the heart of the home”? Although this is undoubtedly true, alongside the prolonged, lazy Friday dinners and the sunny Sunday afternoons spent baking, comes the clutter and chaos that make up everyday life. Well we’re here to say that not all of those things are worth tearing your hair out to clean up and store away! We’ve put together a list of ten things to leave out on your kitchen counter that will not only add to the beauty and decor of your home, but will have you feeling organized and at ease in your kitchen once again.

Who says the fab life is just for the celebrities! Here at FLOFORM, we say that anyone can capture the glamour of the Hollywood lifestyle, right in their kitchen! We love the look of shine and sparkle in the kitchen, and showing off your glitzy side is a great way to enhance the look of any room. This Cambria kitchen is a perfect example of modern glam in a contemporary home. The Snowdon White countertops are stunning in this exquisite silver kitchen, and the sleek fixtures and accessories add a charm, perfect for the modern day family.

And if you want to go for something that’s full-out glamourous, why not try an outdoor kitchen? This idea from Kohler is lavish, lush, and looks ideal for glitzy evenings spent looking at the stars. Whether it’s a stylish accessory or an extravagant rooftop lounge, there are countless and simple ways to add some luxury to your home, and concrete your own star status.

How would incorporate glitz and glamour into your home?

Cottage Life

July 24th, 2013 | No comments

Here we are in the heart of the summer, and the only thing getting us through those long work weeks is the thought of spending a nice long weekend at the cabin. City dwellers tend to flock to the water any chance they get, and we love the relaxed and casual feel of beach house style. Whether you’re sitting pretty on a dock or enjoying a fun-filled beach weekend with friends and family, your perfect cabin style has to fit with your exciting summer plans.

Another way to create an awesome lake house is to design it around your favourite cottage activities. We love this stylishly nautical living room, which works as a great traditional space but adds the perfect balance of sport and family mementos to give it that homey feel. A great example of giving the classic cabin look your own personal twist! 

Whatever your weekend escape plans, interior design can be a great way to create the perfect space for you and your family, and add your own personal style to the look. So get out there, and enjoy those summer months while you still can!

Global Bathrooms – From Coast to Coast

July 3rd, 2013 | No comments

Although you may not live in an exotic location, you can still relish foreign and interesting design elements inspired by international countries. We especially love global trends within the bathroom, as it can be a great escape from your typical home décor. For example, this intriguing look from Kohler showcases an Eastern vibe, that is sure to put you in a relaxed mood, and helps to create that perfect oasis.

For a more Parisienne flair, you could try this look from Cambria featuring Stafford Brown that will transport you to a wholly elegant and luxurious time. Vintage inspiration is a great way to play up a dream quality to your home, and we love this look of French beauty within a classic bathroom for two.

What do you think of these featured international looks?

On Trend: Black & White Décor

June 17th, 2013 | No comments

The Black and White trend is prevalent in fashion these days and is a great style for modern home décor. But, what most people think is that it is limited to only those highly contemporary types looking for that cutting edge look. Here at FLOFORM, we wanted to take a look at some different home design ideas for this striking colour contrast.

Here is a stunning example of how this strong look can be softened with more traditional home styles.  We love this modern meets function bathroom by Cambria, and how the robust tones of Flint Black are perfectly tempered with the elegant white tub that completes the room.

Another great way use of the black & white trend in a more conventional home is as a blank canvas for eye-catching accents within the room. To keep your space within the season, try adding some bright toss cushions or fresh flowers to add that perfect pop of colour to your monochromatic look.

There is a variety of looks to choose from within this trend, and we love to see how families can incorporate this fashion-forward look in their homes.

Would you try the Black and White trend within your space?

Kitchen Style: From A to Zany

June 10th, 2013 | No comments

Your kitchen should be completely your own, and we love the different individualized touches different families put on their spaces. At FLOFORM, we like to expand on those personal elements with countertops that perfectly suit the needs of you and your family. Here are some of our favourite kitchen looks that draw on the individuality of distinct family styles.

For the clean and effortless look many families go for, we love this Corian design, featuring Sagebrush, in a simple yet classic kitchen design. When you’re a busy, on-the-go household, you don’t want to spend your time organizing a cluttered home, and this kitchen would work perfectly for the no-fuss, no-muss family.

A more traditional family might be more intrigued by this rustic, and ornate look by Cambria. A main focal point of this stunning kitchen is the intricate woodwork and timeless fixtures that cement this style into the design dynasty. We think this kitchen would work for those longing for times long ago, or maybe just fans of Downton Abbey.  

A total divergence from the classic kitchen is this bold look from Kohler. The modern retro décor would work great for any eclectic family looking for something fresh and new for their kitchen. We love the bright and lively energy this style exudes, while still tying in all the colours to create a seamless and fun look.

What style would you love for your home’s kitchen?
