A preview of things to come

I ran across this picture on This Young House yesterday and felt a tiny bit (OK a lot) of excitement as it is so similar to what my kitchen will look like when it is complete:

Will this be a new trend?

in my work as a faux finisher i have seen this trend for about 3 years in the wealthier parts of the city and metro area.
Ann Sacks and Waterworks inspired i'd think.

its a pretty stunning classic look.
while i'd agree its a trend, i dont think it will come to look dated. real materials used in a tradition way + limited color = timeless.
