STATEMENT LIGHTING

Statement lighting comes in many forms and styles and, one thing is certain – your guest will take notice!

They are an unexpected element to add color, texture and tiny bit of drama to your space. You can use them to add a glimpse of glitz and desirability, a bit of contemporary flair or use them to create a more rustic vibe.

THE SLEEP REALM

Our bedrooms are as worked up as we are, uplifting us in the post hours of con call or just because we could take a quick nap or even to Netflix and binge! So the focus for bedrooms this year is to give back its original form of retreating, a soothing space with shades and forms that invite calmness and rejuvenation.

So simplify your bedroom space, remove the clutter and add layers of textures that don’t impose heaviness. Focus on beautifully styled but simpler bed forms, invite cushions and throws. Introduce hints of nature either on the headboard upholstery or bedside table lampshades and live plants. 

SHADES OF SEA BREEZE

To be honest any nature-inspired softer but hues are the key to Zen-inspired homes. We say sea-breeze is the one of the ways to go. This color supplements the space with calming vibes and are aesthetically alluring. And somehow this shade goes with almost all colors.

We recommend using it sparsely like in smaller curios or amidst a certain monochrome featuring sea breeze on one main furniture piece. Either way the very look of it will add a plethora of underlying elegance. 

COTTAGECORE

On one of our last few blogs we have spoken exhaustively about how cottage style and cottage core is the focal design mantra of interior experts. This style is a foretaste of dreamy homes and quaintly charming vibe.

Embracing delicate floral prints and patterns, lighter wood finish surfaces, organic textures and woods – creating a wholesome, idyllic and mindful rural vibe.

SUSTAINABILITY

More and more people are moving to sustainable materials and accepting the styles that celebrate handmade, responsibly sourced and supporting local communities. There is a clear shift toward conscious living and sharing spaces that are wholesome as opposed to insalubrious.

This also translates to how we buy furniture pieces; there is a move toward natural but sustainability procured wood, celebration of age-old techniques and crafts, and décor items made of reclaimed wood, glass and metals. Also forms that revel rusticity and natural designs.

DO IT YOURSELF

For some time, we all had limited access to ordering food online or calling a handyman for repairs – and have experienced the beauty of do-it-yourself. Whether you have made origami with your kids or baked your first cake or repaired the Air Conditioners (courtesy YouTube) we are becoming increasingly confident in our own abilities and the positive effect it has on our happiness reinforces the importance of doing things independently.

Hence, this year we envisage a surge on fixing, building and crafting a more mindful interior environment. Whether focused on DIY furniture or customizing a furniture piece to one’s own personal liking.
