The most popular nursery photo of 2016 balances straight lines and gentle curves. The crib, trim and two-toned wall paint provide a clean-lined backdrop. The circular shaggy rug is a soft spot for baby to learn to crawl. To round things out more, the glider, pouf and chandelier bring in just the right amount of curves.
As popular as modern farmhouse style was this year, contemporary style topped it for Houzz readers in the powder room category. This most popular design’s textured wall, Caesarstone counter and shelf and sculptural sink enchanted Houzzers. Another growing trend worth noting here is the backlit mirror — it provides light without fixtures, which would have interrupted the textured tile wall.
Hangers show up front and center in the No. 1 laundry photo of 2016. Underneath, the laundry supplies are corralled in a basket, making them easy to reach when it’s time to do the wash.
The most popular kitchen photo on Houzz in recent months is full of light and sophistication. Brass fixtures and hardware and dark gray paint on custom Shaker-style base cabinets steal the show. White walls and open shelves and a custom marble backsplash and countertop lend an airy, clean feeling, while a vintage runner rug on a floor of reclaimed heart pine creates warmth.
