Shab­nam Gupta, who launched her flag­ship out­let of Pea­cock Life in Ban­dra, has to her credit a list homes of ac­tors Pari­neeti Chopra, Aditya Chopra, Rani Mukher­jee, Ir­rfan Khan and many more. She tells us what to look out for in 2017. 1 Go Green Named the 2017 Pan­tone Colour of the Year, "Green­ery" is meant to represent re­fresh­ment and re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion— some­thing we all could use in a com­plex so­cial and po­lit­i­cal en­vi­ron­ment. Thus, 2017 will be about this cheery shade of green in home decor, fash­ion and com­mer­cial de­sign.

2 Tech Savvy Re­defin­ing the user's life­style with state-of-the-art tech­nol­ogy, prod­ucts and ma­te­ri­als, making the home not only live­able but also lux­u­ri­ous. Tech­nol­ogy has also mas­sively en­hanced the process of de­sign by en­abling cre­ative ideas to be­come tan­gi­ble in ever speed­ier time frames.

3 Up­cy­cling/Re­cy­cling Peo­ple are look­ing for more sus­tain­able fur­ni­ture and in­te­rior ideas. Reusing, re­pur­pos­ing and up­cy­cling will re­main a key el­e­ment. We live in a world im­mersed in tech­nol­ogy and dis­pos­able items so peo­ple are look­ing for a bal­ance.

4 Min­i­mal­is­tic Bath­rooms The trend is going in the di­rec­tion of smaller and more pri­vate spa­ces. The shape and the size of toi­let sinks and bath­tubs are con­sid­er­ably re­duced, not only to fit bet­ter in the smaller ur­ban apart­ments but also to in­tro­duce a sense of re­strained ele­gance and in­ti­macy.

5 Mo­du­lar Fur­ni­ture Mo­du­lar fur­ni­ture al­lows us to per­son­alise in­te­rior de­sign in no time with­out spend­ing lots of money. Mul­tipur­pose fur­ni­ture de­sign give us the free­dom to save the space-sav­ing ideas for dec­o­rat­ing, re­flect­ing the in­te­rior trends. 6 The Art-in­spiredWall Art/Wall­pa­per truth is wall­pa­per or wall art can make or break a room, ren­der­ing it time­lessly chic or per­ma­nently tragic. A fo­cal point is able to at­tract the eyes into the space and give the view­ers a sense of what to ex­pect. In this case, a piece of wall art can be po­si­tioned as a fo­cal point for your room.
