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.

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.
