Before Allison and I head off on our annual holiday break (we return Jan. 6) I wanted to look back at the most popular Atticmag posts for this year. For that metric I used pin-love — between 500 and 5000 pins. Topping the list is Custom Kitchen Cabinet Ideas 2 [above] which focused on special features that give added value to a kitchen. The other twelve should also provide good browsing — click on the link or the photo to see the post. These standouts indicate a strong emphasis on practicality and making our homes more functional and comfortable. I was surprised by the attention given to rustic wood for cabinets – a vote in favor of texture and homey style. Plus, gray continues to be a popular neutral personalized by accents of bold color.
Looking forward to next year, the design world knows that color authority Pantone declared “Radiant Orchid” it for 2014. I’ve been writing about purple and lavender for quite some time so that’s a familiar surprise.
My Mostly Mauve post has links to previous takes on fuchsia, shocking pink and other violet family hues.
Before signing off, I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year. Thanks to you all again for stopping by. I look forward to giving you fresh ideas in ’14! — Jane
