Try­ing to keep pace with lat­est home decor trends can be over­whelm­ing. While do­ing up the in­te­ri­ors of a house is re­flec­tive of one’s likes and dis­likes, trends do play a role. This year, it is all about cre­at­ing a rich lay­ered and or­ganic look, right from us­ing unique tex­tures to a fas­ci­nat­ing range of colours.

Al­though neu­tral tones such as whites, beige, pale greys, camel, and blush pink will be in de­mand this sea­son, com­bin­ing them with metallics such as rose gold, bronze, and bluish sil­ver will also be in play. The in­tro­duc­tion of spiced shades such as dull saf­fron and muted desert shades will bring in the calm in­te­ri­ors. Still the use of jew­elled hues such as green, navy and aubergine ac­cents will be high­lighted to com­ple­ment this med­i­ta­tive pal­ette. What will also trend this year is more or­ganic ev­ery­day ma­te­ri­als and open lay­outs for a re­laxed home liv­ing. The re­turn to ar­ti­sanal, ground and lowtech is a change from the dig­i­tal in­flu­ences that sur­round us. The need to move away from pho­to­shopped per­fec­tion to a more nat­u­ral and health­ier lifestyle is the ‘in’ thing.

Sim­plic­ity works won­ders for your home—adding an ac­cent wing chair, a few cush­ions or even a lamp­shade can give the room a makeover with the new colour pal­ette. Know how to give your liv­ing room, bed­room and child’s room a fresh, new look.
