Decor Ideas That Are in Trend This Year

Your home is a reflection of your taste in aesthetics; it displays your sensibilities and your desires. Envisioning of how you want your home to look is the easy part, but it may take days even months to make it practically possible. The design and decor of your home should also reflect your personality. So, if you are planning a revamp session, it is time to discuss some decor ideas with your interior designer and bring something unique on board.


Till a few years ago, the Indian design industry was largely undeveloped, as there was no market for local crafts and products. The homes used to look like clones as each house stressed on minimalism and large empty spaces with touches of Italian decor. But more and more people are looking for individualistic touches with an inclusion of handcrafted furniture made in India. The idea is to diminish the influence of the western world, take
the traditional art and craft of India and blend it with contemporary style. Local materials like marble, leather, wood and brass are finding their due places in the studios of the creative designers. An embroidered sofa would sound improbable a few years back. Things have changed; traditional motifs like the paisley print are making
way to Indian houses.


The demand for metal art is also on the rise. Eclectic art pieces with a modern touch have become quite popular in urban homes. Metal table tops and asymmetrical shelves are also finding their way in the urban landscape. One good thing about the local-made products is that customers the choice of customizing their products as per their budget and requirements. A marble lampshade may not suit your budget, so you can always ask to customize it and make it less ornamental. Mix and match style will dominate home design; the young urban group of customers do not want to adhere exclusively to one single decor idea. Rather, they would love the mix of elements which will bring out a unique style.


Although soft pastel shades are still used for bedrooms; bold jewel tones which create a dramatic effect on the walls are becoming extremely popular. According to interior designers, there should be at least one wall with bold colours which will act as the center piece of the entire house has become a trend these days. As a contrast to the bold swishing colours, matte-coloured appliances are preferred in the kitchens.

Looking To Decorate Your New Home And Seeking Thematic Inspiration? Here Are Four Interior Design Styles That Are Popular in Modern Homes

Modern Minimalist Style

Minimalist interior design is one of the architectural centre pieces of the 20th century. Spare and streamlined while still being inviting -minimalism is charming in almost any space.With less clutter to wade through and process mentally, the innate beauty of each piece of furniture or art in the home really starts to stand out.

Rustic Style

Rustic interior design creates an eclectic look that emphasises nature: homespun, timeworn, handcrafted, distressed items constructed of natural materials or finished in a natural hue. Rustic interior design furniture normally consists of wood, reclaimed lumber and stone. However, bamboo, rattan, sisal, nubby cotton, wool, paper, glass, clay and various types of metal can also be incorporated to embellish the look. Metalworked furniture is another great option to use with this concept.

The rustic look features wooden beams and columns as well as hardwood or stone flooring. If you don’t have these elements in your home, it is possible to put up faux beams or columns to achieve the look.

Industrial Style

Industrial interior design is popular for decorating lofts and old buildings converted into living spaces, although it can be used for traditional apartments and houses too. What you need for this style is to create an illusion of rough surfaces and materials that suggest an industrial past. The simplest way to show roughness is to leave some walls or surfaces unfinished. In addition to some rough metal elements that will create an industrial atmosphere, you are looking for old, industrial-looking objects that are made from steel, metal or wood.These items are preferably worn down or have been salvaged and recycled.

Medieval style

Medieval interior design draws its inspiration from the Middle Period of European history which lasted from the 5th to the 15th century. It began with the collapse of the Western Roman Empire and merged into the Renaissance and the Age of Discovery. Medieval interior design creates a dramatic look that recalls the grand stone castles and wooden dining halls of the era.Remember that the best interior architects will frequently bridge different styles together.So liberate your mind and approach your design from creative angles.

Sushil Jhunjhunwala Interior Designer

As an interior designer for the past 30 years, I have come to realise the immeasurable importance of finding that niche state of mind that makes for good design. What works for one client is anathema to another. So, what’s the formula? Having been involved in creating some of the most considered residences, work spaces and private lounges in the city, one discerns they are as unique as the individuals who inhabit them. My personal design philosophy lies in zeroing in on those subtle distinctions of luxury and style and leveraging them to the utmost with intelligent planning, innovative architecture, and bold colourisation.

Want to Make Your Room Look Bigger? There Are Few Decorating Tricks with Optical Illusion

It is easy for modern architects and interior designers to cultivate their design skills on large spaces, but small areas are tough to decorate where spaces seem to be too small but necessities are many. It is a great challenge for the designers to come up with clever design ideas. Designer should consider several important factors that affect the optical change in the size and proportions of rooms. It is possible to correct interior without redesigning the entire structure but with the little help of optical illusions which can totally change the visual perception of the interior space.

A room can be visually enlarged, heightened, deepened, broadened, narrowed, or lowered by using the proper colour, lighting, materials, pattern, shapes, horizontal or vertical lines, mirrors, etc.

Colour is such a fascinating facet of decorating that it can create a believable illusion. The right colour combination can change the visual size and proportions of the room, making even the smallest space seem large, airy and attractive. Designer can easily manipulate the length, width and height of painted interiors by pairing with perfect hues and contrasting colours.

Lighting is the most important aspect of interior design; it not only creates an ambience of a living space but also creates a visually larger space. Creative use of lighting can enhance everything in the room and helps in achieving a perfect balance between style, comfort and beautiful interiors. Incorporating a good interior lighting can increase the brightness of the room and can also create ideal mood sets.

A very prevalent and obvious way of decorating a small room is by hanging mirrors on the wall. This is a simple technique to make the room look larger than it is. It can create fascinating optical illusions and can also bring a wow factor to a well-proportioned room.

Do not spoil the interior with excess accessories and equipment’s. Keep it simple but trendy with this few tricks.
