Posted on 15 March 2018

Here’s a round-up of the top 5 interior design trends to look out for to help you stay ahead of the curve in 2018

We're done with 2017 and what a year it had been. Undoubtedly, there were some lows but the highs had been definitely great. And, now that we are in 2018, it's going to be another roller-coaster ride for all of us. As the New Year dawns, it's not just about reflecting on our accomplishments but also an opportunity to look ahead and set new goals for health, career, relationships, and of course our 'Home!' Being a perfect sanctuary and a place to retreat, the home needs to feel special and beautiful. So, when you start to get the old out and be in with new, it is good to update yourself with the latest interior design trends. Well, we don't suggest you to rely meticulously, as interior designer and author, Nate Berkus once said, "all about living with what you love - with what best represents who you are."

However, if you’re looking to overhaul your home entirely, or just give it a few fresh updates, here’s a guide to the hot-hot looks, thanks to the design pros.

Brights

Grey may still be the favourite for many interior enthusiasts, but colours are set to be brighter and bolder this year. Neutral tones are giving way to bolder, more vibrant hues, which take their cue from Pantone’s Color of The Year for 2018, Ultra Violet, a vivid shade of purple. Perfect to achieve a moody interiors using many jewel tones, it's time to feel braver with colour choices - on both walls and furniture pieces. Exciting tones for 2018 are emerald green, rich amethyst purple, indigo blue, and mustard yellow.

Choose from the range like Elixir Fuschia, Akasa-Rust if you want to have brightly brave appeal. However, we also have Akasa-Blue and Ayna for bright flooring affairs.

Maximalism

Luscious spaces, unabashed layering and sensuous shapes, maximalism marks a move away from the Scandinavian-inspired minimalism that has been a hit in past years. It's time to wrap your abode with more texture, colour pattern, embellishment, comfort and eclectic style to create a purposefully over-decorated look. Apart from living spaces, we will also see the trend in kitchen and bathroom where the cabinet hardware, plumbing fixtures and lighting are done in multiples hues ranging from brass and nickel to bronze etc.

Tip: If you are not too sure about the look, start with the floor. For bold-on-bold carpets and rugs, check our website (www.hands-carpets.com)or carpet showroom in Delhi.

Monochrome

One of the few forever-in-style trends that is constantly being reinvented, monochrome is taking over the design world yet again. While styling in this trend, it is crucial to stay sharp yet refined as the palette takes a lot of discipline. But the result is very stylish and sophisticated. Be brave and add the palette to your kitchen space to attract many eye balls.

Tip: Monochrome luxury carpets and rugs or designer carpets are available with many carpet dealers in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Bengaluru. You can also visit our showroom in Delhi that will have a range of monochrome magic. Well, the best-buy is Atia Carpet.

Natural & Sustainable

Back in 2015, designers were using reclaimed wood for everything, starting from bedroom to kitchen counters. Sustainability was one of the leading trends in the whole of home design. The trend is here to stay again. From using recycled to re-purposed material such as chair upholstered with denim tags and wall covered with reclaimed bamboo, the idea is a way of responsible living to save mother earth more than a fast catching trend. 2018 will also see a shift to fresh natural materials such as stone, copper, concrete and granite to bring a serene ambiance to any space.

Tip: Going sustainable does not mean replacing everything. Just add an accent piece for an unusual appeal.

Outside In

2018 will see organics as hot topic when it comes to interior design circles. Making your home have an outdoor feel, organics such as plants and flowers will add nature's best without overpowering the sanctity of your house. One can opt for colourful or hard-to-kill plants with ornately patterned leaves. With this, planters and stands will enjoy a creative revival.

Tips: Go for low-maintenance indoor plants or air purifier plants that will serve dual purpose.
