WHITE IS THE NEW SILVER - TRENDSPOTTING

 I just read the most interesting article about how the popularity of the Iphone has changed how we feel about the color white. Call it the Iphone effect!  White has replaced silver as the most popular car color sold world-wide, but what does this have to do with your kitchen?

White is the new silver with cars...and your appliances. Stainless steel has been the go-to choice for so many years, but now companies are introducing a super sleek, lacquer-like white finish. The updated white has a glossy sheen that almost looks like a sheet of glass, this is not the bumpy white we have seen in the past. Its sleek, stunning, and all the rage in Europe.

I love the look of these glossy white appliances, stainless can be so hard to keep clean! And I think its nice to have the option instead of feeling like stainless is the only choice.

Will stainless become the new avocado? Guess we'll have to wait and see! 
For now lets check out these gorgeous kitchens. What do you think about this trend?


     I love how the white appliances keep the fresh, bright and clean look of the white cabinets.


The hardware really stands out against the white. 


Looks so beautiful mixed with wood.

  4. I love the idea of white appliances- no more obsessing over every fingerprint from the kids! My only concern is the color of the white appliances. Are they a stark white or a warm white? I would imagine you would be very limited as to what shade of white you use on your cabinets.
