We get it. You love the Scott Brothers. We do, too! In fact, we can’t get enough of them, hence their newest competition show, Brother Vs. Brother. (But don’t worry, Property Brothers fans; they’re filming new episodes of PB as we speak.) The whole concept of Brother Vs. Brother was created because of Jonathan and Drew’s pure, competitive nature. Yes, they throw playful jabs back and forth, but they like to have fun on set, too. We heart them.

This season of HGTV Star has been a whirlwind! We’re already down to the final three designers, Brooks, Tiffany and Jeribai, one of whom will have their own HGTV show after Sunday night’s showdown. For this week’s final challenge, the designers are headed to Palm Springs, Calif. where they’ll each make over a huge suite in a resort hotel in just three days. Each designer will have their former competitors to call on, plus the guidance and expertise of our favorite brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott.

Another season in Knoxville, Tenn. (home to HGTV Headquarters) means a brand-new design vignette by a talented pair of interior design students. Each quarter, HGTV’s Home Studio university co-op program allows up-and-coming talent from the top design schools in the country to work closely with industry experts to create interactive, educational and flat-out beautiful displays for employees and visitors. (Each vignette mixes a current design trend and an iconic piece.) This spring, University of Cincinnati students Jill Roebel and Kylie O’Keefe showcased the mod metallic and urban natural trends with a classic light fixture that you probably thought was more recent than its 1958 creation, the Artichoke Lamp.

DIVE INTO THE TRENDS

HGTV Home Studio Interns: Kylie O’Keefe and Jill Roebel

Kayla Kitts for Design Happens: What influenced you to choose the mod metallic design style? What about the urban natural movement?

Jill Roebel: After researching an iconic piece of design and choosing the Artichoke Lamp, Kylie and I decided to take the natural aspect of the lamp’s form and the metallic in its finishes and base our trends off that. It was our approach to narrowing down all the trends that are happening this year.

MOD METALLICS >>

HGTV Home Studio Design Vignette - Mod Metallics

KK: What has caused, in your opinion, the current metallic trend?

JR: I think it’s because of all the great metallic products on the market. Metallic paints, papers and textiles have come a long way. These products make it easier to achieve a chic and expensive look on a budget.

KK: How much metallic is too much metallic in a room?

JR: I think it’s all based on personal preference. You can design a room where all the surfaces have a metallic quality or finish to them (like in the ‘Mod Metallic’ vignette). Or, you can take a more subtle approach and add metallic accents to your space.

KK: Can you mix various metals, or should you stay away from that entirely? If you can mix, how do you do it successfully?

JR: You can absolutely mix metals! The key to mixing is to use different colors AND sheens; this gives your eye a visual break from all the shininess and adds depth to your space. Pieces with a silver or chrome finish are great places to start when mixing metals. Because they reflect the colors around them, they mix with warmer tones of metallics almost seamlessly.

URBAN NATURAL >>

HGTV Home Studio Design Vignettes - Urban Natural

KK: What do you think has caused the rise of natural, unadorned wood pieces and raw, natural elements in the design world?

Kylie O’Keefe: The influx of natural, unadorned wood pieces and raw, natural elements reflects an increased desire for people to reconnect with the natural landscape. There is a great sense of warmth and comfort that natural materials can bring to a space, which I find to be one of the most appealing elements of the trend.

KK: What advice or tips do you have for people trying to mix various natural textures, like wood grains, hides, burlap, etc.?

KO: When it comes to mixing natural textures, balance is key. Using the environment as your inspiration, concentrate on showing a variety of different textures to create a sense of depth. It’s important to embrace the imperfection found in nature by mixing different wood grains and patterns within one space.

KK: How can people successfully achieve an “urban natural” look in their home?

KO: I would first encourage people to think about what natural environment inspires them. Nature already has a perfect balance of color and texture, so after defining your central source of inspiration, I would then encourage someone to search for accessories and furniture that incorporate similar natural textures, and in an honest and organic way.

ARTICHOKE LAMP >>

HGTV Home Studio Design Vignette Artichoke Lamp

KK: Tell me about the Artichoke Lamp. What was your inspiration for choosing this fixture for your iconic element?

JR: The Artichoke Lamp was designed in 1958 by Poul Henningsen. Each ‘leaf’ on the lamp is perfectly positioned to hide the light source and decrease the amount of glare. Kylie and I chose this piece because it fits with so many different aesthetics because of its timeless design. It was the perfect choice to share between our two contrasting aesthetics.

KK: What can you tell D-Happ readers about the designer, Poul Henningsen, or the lamp that they may not already know?

JR: Poul Henningsen was actually trained as an architect but is only known for his light fixtures (his Artichoke Lamp being his most famous). The Artichoke Lamp was created in Denmark where it’s called the PH Kogle, which means conifer cone or pine cone.
