Every year I look forward to seeing what the color masters over at Sherwin Williams are going to deem the coming years color of the year. This year, it is a very bold choice! The Sherwin Williams 2018 Color of the Year is Oceanside (SW 6496). It is a bright, deep blue color, reminiscent of a mixture of robin’s egg blue and turquoise. It would be a nice addition to an office to keep things bright and exciting, or for a living room to add some pizzazz and depth.
These trend-setting faucets will make you want to over-wash your hands, except for the fishbowl one, where the water drains out of the fishbowl as you wash, making you think about water conservancy as the fish’s water is draining rapidly. I guarantee that all the other faucets will make you want to turn on the water and just watch, they are so cool! In the world of faucets, there are so many to choose from. There are LED-lit faucets, 3D-printed metal and glass faucets, faucets that create a vortex of water, faucets that ration your water use, or at least make you realize and ponder your consumption. Regardless of which one you select, it’s bound to be a conversation starter, and just plain fun to use.

Bri’s Perspective: This fabulous Mid-Century Modern home in Fruit Heights is in pristine original condition, and has only had one owner since it was built in 1969. It has the ideal bones for an easy remodel. The lucky new homeowners have a lot of great elements to work with, like vaulted ceilings with wood beams, metal and wood Mid-Century light fixtures, wood paneled walls, a polished stone fireplace, brick and terrazzo fireplace, and open, floating stairs.

Bri’s Perspective: This home is a nearly untouched Mid-Century Modern original Westshire house, designed by the one and only Ron Molen. The one level concept is an entertainer’s delight, with a galley style kitchen at the heart of the home, surrounded by the living room, family room, entry, and den. A detail that is sure to be a favorite is the posh sunken living room a.k.a conversation pit, which has an appealing wood burning, brick fireplace at its center, flanked by wooden built-in shelving.
