Hidden Beauty

In 2022, refrigerators typically trend one of two ways: The traditional stainless-steel route (sometimes outfitted with giant touch screens) or the “search and find” type—where the
massive, must-have appliance is disguised and hidden behind perfect panels of cabinetry, just like in this Martha O’Hara Interiors design. For a seamless, integrated appearance, ask your designer about these paneled refrigerator options.

Heating Up Home

We know fireplaces aren’t anything new, but we are seeing a shift in the way they’re designed and incorporated into dens, porches, sunrooms, living spaces, and more. Cue Eminent Interior Design with this elongated, thin, and oh, so modern electric fireplace installed into an open, airy great room.

Hey, Josh!

Skip the personal assistant and give at-home artificial intelligence a serious spin. Josh.ai, for example, a before-its-time smart home system able to respond to more than a million voice and app queries, is changing the way of life within the family home of Peter Crain, owner of Trestle Homes.

“As a custom home builder, I believe voice-controlled automation is the future of home management,” says Crain. “Our home is one of the first Josh installations in Minnesota, and it’s a great product—it’s like Alexa and Siri on steroids. We can tell Josh to turn off the lights, lower the shades, and turn on the TV, and he answers instantly in a polite British voice. We can even ask him to tell a joke, and he responds with a lame Dad joke!”

The Rage on Ranges

Whether it be Lacanche, La Cornue, or another global brand, ornamental and elaborate stoves and ranges that emit vintage vibes are on the rise. This steely gray-blue option (above) incorporated by City Homes beautifully demonstrates the appeal of this functional, yet flair-filled kitchen appliance.

Shower Smarts

Everyone deserves to live in luxury, especially when it’s combined with unmatched convenience and easier-than-ever functionality. This shower system by Kohler (featuring voice-enabled technology with various steam, temperature, lighting, and preset options) delivers a customizable, can’t-beat showering experience that offers ultimate relaxation.
