True luxury means, combining the finest quality pieces with a functional design which is able to create a proficiency that overflows identity. This delicate word ‘luxury’ represents and defines the everyday reality in collaboration with opulence and grandeur. Sleek and uncluttered interiors influenced by mid-century modern designs make for a raging luxury home decor trend at present.
In the modern-day open-plan interiors, a sense of luxury is established with the use of superior finishes like marble tile, custom wood flooring and installing them seamlessly renders a luxe appeal to the expanse. Hence, contemporary residential trends revolve around a mixture of textures and finishes to choose from. Honed and polished, chiseled and smooth, the use of these materials is a great way to add a subtle richness and glamour to the residential space.
While designing a residential space, there are abundant themes and ideas to abide by. The concept of home decor keeps evolving with each passing year, bringing in new interior design options and trends that can be used to transform spaces. However, despite the diversity in décor options, one thing remains constant and that is the eternal appeal towards luxury. A multitude of options are available based on the personal taste that acts as catalysts, rendering a bespoke charm to the space. The concept of a neutral palette for the overall expanse is a classic idea that is used time and again. Neutral colors are whites with cool or warm undertones and primary shades of grey and beige. The power of this neutral decor is such that it makes an excellent statement for walls and a great option for furniture and furnishings. Leading by example; located in Noida, The Seventy is a residence that is the epitome of elegant modern architecture. Designed by And Studio, it glorifies the use of neutral shades in their entire space. Bedrooms have a subtle color palette and unique bifurcation of spaces that conceal some elements inconspicuously, yet displaying a certain holistic grandeur.
Moving on, another trend that is here to stay is the monochrome color palette. Black and white are the beginning and end of the color spectrum. The clash between light and dark is a gift from the interior design gods as there couldn’t be a starker contrast between any two colors. The elaborate use of pristine Statuario white marble in the lobby areas of the Seventy exude a very calm and tranquil effect. A combination of superior white and exotic brown marbles along with hints of black granite has been used to design the royal bathrooms. The monochrome trend offers endless possibilities into the perspective of home decor. Hence there are a lot of variations that combine these two colors and pan out an aesthetically pleasing sight.
Lastly, a new trend “biophilia” incorporates human design and natural elements in a way that doesn’t seem manufactured, is doing the rounds. It incorporates organic elements from the environment and attributes towards a more sustainable design model. In the past few years, our society has grappled with climate change and the use of recycled wood for chairs, tables, and floors can contribute to the home’s organic aesthetic while promoting a clean, environmentally friendly home. The use of vertical gardens by And Studio is a brilliant thought executed to perfection as it minimizes the overheating effect of the summer sun. As one enters the house, exquisite design language and ravishing light immediately relaxes the mind and feeds the soul. 2020 is all about giving back to nature. Hence, bedrooms and bathrooms are transformed into ethereal spaces created by using rich earthy elements including metals, wood, and stone.
Minimalism is out and maximalism is in. While minimalism focuses on toning things down and making it simple and straightforward, maximalism is the complete opposite. Maximalism is about embracing the grandeur. Big, bold, bright colors and patterns, gaudy decor and colorful abstract paintings are used as statement pieces that accentuate the look of the expanse. Regardless, the transition has happened from less is more to more is more. The residential design should satisfy the needs, desires and functions required in homes. Personalization is key as the version of luxury and decor can vary from person to person.
