Current favorite design Trend
Wanna know what else I’m loving?
- The first time I took notice of this design trend was on Pinterest when I saw it being used on bathroom vanities. Some of my favorites include this tight fluted or reeded pattern mixed with the black honed stone. I also love the wider look of this fluted floating vanity. The curved plaster fluting of this beauty mixed with a marble top is some feminine and elegant.
- I absolutely LOVE how Shea from Studio McGee used fluted moulding in a new and creative way. Their contractor cut the pieces down so they were thinner and used them as an inset on the paneled walls of their master bedroom vestibule. They also did the same above the doors and it all feels so fresh and modern!
- Athena over at Eyeswoon created the most beautiful passageway between her closet and her bath with hand-troweled fluted plaster walls. She could have easily left the walls blank but by adding this detail she’s elevated the space and created something really special.
- Sarah Bartholomew’s use of fluted plaster walls in the living room of the Kips Bay Show House is STUNNING! By treating all the walls with a 1″ fluted plaster treatment she added tons of texture and architectural interest to the space.
- Jenna over at Jenna Sue Design Co shared the ultimate look for less fluted dresser DIY. Proving that anyone can get the look with a little bit of elbow grease! Her tutorial got my wheels spinning on how I could incorporate a bit of this into our own home!
How to incorporate fluting moulding into your own home
Here are just a few ways you can incorporate this design trend into your own home!
- Use as wainscoting for a fresh, modern look.
- Add it to the inside of larger case openings between rooms for extra architectural interest and detail.
- Have a piece of furniture or cabinet with inset doors? Have the pieces cut down like Shea did from Studio McGee and add them to the panel so they are flush with the border to add texture.
- Incorporate a thin piece below crown moulding or above the header of doorways and windows for a bit of drama and interest.
- Dress up your doors by replacing your standard door casing with fluted casing and decorative caps.
- Elevate columns in your home with fluted moulding.
- Add fluted moulding to a kitchen island for a modern, sleek look.
- Don’t want to make a big commitment? Bring this trend into your home through the use of side tables and small accessories like vases.
I can’t get enough of this classic design trend. I love the different uses and applications I’m seeing and the new and creative ways in which it’s being used to make it feel so fresh and modern!
