So you’ve flipped through in­te­rior de­sign­ing mag­a­zines, read up on quick ways on how to do up in­te­rior space, searched on pin­ter­est, and you’re still won­der­ing how to glam your home space. Well, don’t fret, we’ve got ex­perts to help you un­der­stand the im­por­tance of how to get it right while do­ing up your space. Don’t for­get — homes talk vol­umes about your aes­thetic and also re­flects who you are as a per­son.

Talk­ing about keep­ing it min­i­mal­is­tic, Su­nil Sethi, FDCI pres­i­dent, says, “We of­ten see in In­dian homes, peo­ple have a habit of stock­ing goods they no longer use. Hoard­ing is very fa­mil­iar to most houses in In­dia. Then came the era of min­i­mal­ism, and the younger gen­er­a­tion seems to em­brace it. How­ever, I took in­spi­ra­tion from ar­chi­tects Le Cor­bus­ier and Tadao Ando and back home it has to be Charles Cor­rea who have de­fined min­i­mal­ism the best. And, it’s in­ter­est­ing to see many young In­dian ar­chi­tects are fol­low­ing the same. Make sure that the walls are made of ex­posed con­crete, and use a lot of whites in your decor.”

Pick orig­i­nal art­works by lo­cal artists wher­ever you travel, to dec­o­rate your home. Don’t in­vest in mass-pro­duced sou­venirs or repli­cas, in­stead buy lo­cal craft. Bring back mem­o­ries that you can talk about.

Use elec­tic pieces, don’t be afraid of ex­per­i­ment­ing, be­cause that re­flects your in­di­vid­u­al­ity.

Be a proud home owner, no mat­ter whether it is a room apart­ment, or a bun­glow. Try to use In­dian craft, rugs, tex­tile, dec­o­ra­tion. QUICK TIPS TO SPRUCE UP SPA­CES
