GRAPHICS AND DESIGN It is wonderful to see an upswing in graphic design detailing across contemporary living spaces today. This now has an almost prescient presence over any kind of expression, be it in furniture, wallpapers, floorings, furnishings, rugs and home accessories. Graphic detailing helps define or create a product language. Without this detail, a product is almost voiceless.
CURRENT TRENDS Detailing in the new neutrals of taupe, ivory, beige and sand, gives detail without calling too much attention to itself. Geometric shapes—a mix of different details—in contrasting or complimentary textures are some of the key emerging trends. Another emerging trend is graphic art in homes. All kinds of wonderful renditions ranging from typography to illustrations are all taking pride of place in homes.
