Why Some Homeowners Really, Really Hate Concrete Countertops. Blame Pinterest, blame Joanna Gaines, blame marble madness overload — but concrete countertops have taken over farmhouses in the past few years. It's easy to see why: Installing concrete counters is a sure way to infuse your home with a rustic yet industrial feel that's at once trendy and unfussy.

Pantone Just Released Its "Color Of The Year". It's an interior design moment we wait for all year, the Pantone Color of the Year. This is the defining hue that takes its cues from the year behind us, and attempts to set the tone for the year ahead.
