WHAT HAP­PENS WHEN the gospel of max­i­mal­ism meets daily life, or when you can’t de­cide whether to de­clut­ter or add prints and pat­terns to your home? Should you own less or sim­ply up­cy­cle? When it comes to decor and de­sign, dilem­mas are com­mon. HOME comes to your res­cue. Our 11th An­niver­sary Spe­cial maps trends that will de­fine 2017-2018. We’re not just help­ing you stay far ahead of the de­sign curve, but also break­ing down the trends to help you adapt them to your habi­tats.

If ce­ment has bro­ken the shack­les of ba­nal­ity, graph­ics have be­come all the rage in decor pieces. At one end in­ter­na­tional de­sign brands are eye­ing the In­dian mar­ket, at the other de­sign­ers are restor­ing royal ed­i­fices. In the eco-friendly do­main, re­cy­cled prod­ucts, sus­tain­able ar­chi­tec­ture and rough and rus­tic home tex­tiles are in vogue. Look­ing ahead, as the next gen­er­a­tion takes over, smart home au­to­ma­tion is as pop­u­lar as cre­at­ing a healthy home with vi­ta­min show­ers. That’s not all, ur­ban gar­dens are also trend­ing this year.
