Some trends dictate an era, but some trends will have a perennial chapter in the books of history. Whether you are a design traditionalist or a decor maverick, these 6 trends will surely grab your attention.
There is no ‘design-law’ that forbids you from mixing two elements who by nature are opposites. Pair aged, distressed hardwood floors with stainless steel elements, ultra-modern tables and chairs, or retro glass chandeliers. Although not an entirely new approach, pairing muted neutrals with bold, primary colours is another example of clashing complimentary elements. Incorporating different patterns into your decorating scheme can be incredibly intimidating. But layering patterns is an art in itself and pays off in the end. The trick is to combine prints in different styles and scales. Trust us with the right choices the finished space will harmonise the pairings in unexpected ways.
We are always focused on the fixtures and fittings for the kitchen; take care of even the smallest details, but never experiment a lot when it comes to colour. Spoiler alert: You can use every possible colour of the rainbow and still get a gorgeous looking space to make your most favourite dishes. From splashy modernism to rustic industrialism, we have seen it all. Yet those brightly coloured cabinets are the ones that get stuck in our minds. This trend is in its true sense the underdog in decor trends.
Ever since Pantone declared it as the one of the hottest trends, you might have started to see simple shapes like circles, triangles, hexagons, etc. picking up speed and adorning everything from wallpapers, home furnishings to decor. Geometric patterns have always held a particular fondness with decor enthusiasts. They are intriguing which makes them have the ability to become the focal point in your home even if it subtly added in an art print, end table, or a wall hanging. With brands making out-of-the-box decor pieces, these simple shapes are not simple anymore.
When it comes to bedroom styling, the bed is the one that has our most attention. There are times in life where headboards aren’t exactly a priority. But you have to agree that if you have to elevate the style quotient of your bedroom, a bed with a headboard should be in the cards. Whether you go for a wall mounted one or a free standing one, traditional or contemporary, wooden or upholstered,
one thing is for sure what you choose will make a design impact on the entire bedroom’s design. So choose wisely because at the end of the day, we all wanna “sleep in style.”
How can anyone resist an all-black bathroom with gold tapware? That’s right! Nobody can. The monochromatic trend has stood the test of time and how. The statement that black and white make is one the most iconic of the lot. But with people experimenting, a lot of other monochromatic hues are bringing a glamourous update. From sofas to bedcovers, decor pieces to rugs, monochrome is a sure-shot way to amplify the style quotient of your abode.
We know, we know. We’ve talked about a single colour dominating the decor palatte and ruling it. But like a prodigal son of the family, the colour saturated blue, which is a subdued version of this primary colour has the ability to make a soothing and nostalgic first impression. The best thing about this colour is that it fits in both the categories of vintage as well as modern. It also responds beautifully to changes in light. At night it is quite restrained and elegant, and daylight brings out its exuberance.
