As society evolves, so does the definition of the American home. The New American Home 2017 and 2018, both of which we are honored to be a part of, embrace this idea. The homes feature today’s modern residential trends, while also incorporating timeless classic elements.

Explore, with us, three trends surfacing in these alluring abodes.

Whether guiding the eye down the floorway or inviting guests to experience the kitchen, linear designs achieve a comfortable feel in a contemporary home. Esplanade visually connects shared living areas in The New American Home 2017 with earthy veins, while alternating subway tile and stainless steel ribbons pair for a large-scale backsplash with clean lines in this year’s modern space. 

Warm Neutrals
