  • 5 Kitchen Trend Obsessions | Farmhouse Sinks | EyeSwoon

    As a prime hangout spot in Athena’s home and the site of swoony recipe creation, the kitchen is always a focus for us at EyeSwoon. But between Athena’s upcoming cookbook and the remodel of her new townhouse, we’re even more steeped in all things kitchen than usual! And with this deep-dive into the space, we’re seeing some stunning trends start to emerge. So, here we’re sharing five of our favorites. From pale hues to barely-there fixtures, the overall mood is one of lightening up, paring back and embracing more minimal surroundings.

    1. Farmhouse Sinks

    Kitchens are incorporating a nod to country living with deep, functional farmhouse sinks. We’re especially enamored of the look in modern, minimal kitchens, and also when the sink color contrasts with the cabinets below — the juxtaposition is so swoony.

    It’s seems we’re collectively experiencing Scandi interior fever as of the late, and with this influence we’re seeing the softest of gray hues cladding kitchens. The hints of marble that often accompany this look make the trend even more elegant.

    Why tuck away all your beloved pots and pans when you can conveniently hang them up instead? In the same vein as open shelving, the hanging kitchenwares trend lets you put all those pretty tools front and center. The first image isn’t even a real kitchen, (it’s a 3D rendering!), but we’re still so obsessed with the look.

    Ahh, clean, simple and stunning. Although there is still a place for rustic wood in our hearts, its sleek, pale counterparts are certainly having a moment. The material looks equally as chic outfitting entire cabinets and walls as it does in small doses.

    5. Disk Pendant Lights

    The minimalist look of bare hanging bulbs is giving way to ever-so-slight ornamentation in the form of disk pendants. Sometimes flat and sometimes slightly rounded, the look keeps with the pared-down aesthetic and offers a tiny geometric touch to the kitchen. And it’s everywhere! Scroll back through this post to spot even more examples.
