Make a style statement
Anshu Choudhury, Stylist, Craftsvilla.com, shares the top home décor trends of 2016 and suggests ways to personalise your residential interiors
Home is where the heart is. And nothing is more satisfying than doing up your home with a touch of your own style. While there are multiple options to choose from, here are the top trends of 2016 that can help you get started. You can pick and choose the ones that suit your home and style the best.
Closer to nature
Getting closer to nature is a trend that is here to stay. Home décor with untreated wood and stone, plants and flowers can create an aura of calmness within your home. If you don’t want to go all out, you can also choose nature-inspired décor like curtains, cushion covers with floral prints and wall decals of trees to spruce up your home. If you are a lover of gardening, then an indoor garden is a great option too. Wooden cabinets, wood panelling and bamboo furniture is a great way to keep your decor close to nature.
Metallics are not only creating a wave on the ramp, but are also ruling home décor this year. Zari embroidered or brocade fabrics can be used to aesthetically add some sparkle to the living room and bedroom. Bronze and silver table ware are excellent options for the living and dining room. If you are up for some experimentation, you can also have metallic coloured furniture in your home. Do ensure that you do not place too many metallic shades in one room. If you do, pick one master shade and use the rest to complement it. Keep things understated with matte metals. A thoughtful combination of copper, gold and silver tones can work wonders as long as you follow the matte rule.
If you thought it was only your boss who wanted you to multi-task, think again; furniture that are dual purpose have made a big comeback this season. Products like sofa-cum-bed, bed-cum-storage are finding a number of takers in the market. Such additions are a boon if you stay in smaller spaces. And with the multitudes of design options available in this category, one is only spoilt for choices. Going for multi-purpose furniture will not only help you save space, but also cut the clutter down by organising your living room necessities without having to stuff the room.
Soothe the mood
Pastels, nudes and dreamy whites are the favourites of the season. These colours helps calm the mind and reduce tension. You can choose a wall colour, which is the pastel shade of your favourite colour, to get the best of both worlds. Shades like soft blue, pink, pastel green are some of safest bets for beginners.
Bathe in Style
The bathroom is usually neglected or last on priority when it comes to home décor. But with minor additions, you can make this space beautiful, just like the rest of your home. A huge mirror with an antique frame or colourful hanging lamps can add the much needed character to this very personal space.
Make it your own
Last but not the least, the most important aspect to keep in mind at all times is to let your home showcase your individual tastes and styles. It is great to adopt trends but never let it overpower your own choices. Make each trend truly your own by blending them with your own tastes and likes.
