The year gone by had made our home a safe haven during tough times – any hopes of that situation
changing seem to have been rudely dashed by a certain virus! As we continue to work, live, and play
out of our homes – experimenting with our personal spaces can offer us a much-needed way to keep
things fresh and help us channel our inner creativity. Making our world a happy and cheerful space
to be in.
We’ve collated five of the best and the most important home décor trends with the help of industry
experts and our creative designers. Take a look at what this New Year has to offer when it comes to
styling your home!
Maximalism- is it
It’s time to stop being shy. Or making safe and low-key choices. Ditch the subtlety. You’ve got your
life. Make it large and max it out in the way only you can. Choose furnishings and accents that are
bold and striking. Vivid and contrasting colours, textures and materials can add to the maximalist
vibe and ensure statement spaces for your lifestyle.
Let’s handle Curves
The trend is now all about soft, fluid and curved shapes and lines – which are very different from
angular lines and defined shapes. The trend of curves is about softness and is seen as being warm and
welcoming – that’s especially important in these challenging times.
Keep it Earthy
We all yearn to go back to our roots – cherishing our past and trying to relive it in its most true form
possible. Capture the feel in the form of earthy tones, nature-inspired hues, and pieces
that fit naturally into our environment. Bring back the wonder years and the joys that came with it.
Something Old, Something New
It’s human nature to want to be different and to create one’s own individual style. The trend that
manifests this is one where we mix up the old and the new. Be it in design, in accents, in colours,
fabrics, and materials used. The two sides come together to contrast and complement each other –
and create an elevated signature style.
Keep it Sustainable
Staying indoors for the better part of 2021 has taught us to live more sustainably and appreciate
all things natural. Using sustainable and biodegradable materials like wood, hemp, cane and sourcing
products locally takes precedence over unsustainable items and products especially those sourced or
purchased from far-off locations.
As life remains in a one-step-forward-two-steps-backward mode – we will still look ahead with hope
and faith but with no let-up in our safety and prevention protocols. Tweaking the old saying a little…
“ When life gives you lemons, paint walls yellow and live it up a little.” We hope you’ll be able to look
ahead and start planning your interiors and reward your home a little – for continuing to offer you
protection and sanctuary in this year.
Have a Happy 2022 !
