It’s the end of 2020 and the New Year brings in hope and merriment. SURFACES REPORTER (SR) looks forward to 2021 as the knight in shining armour, having the aspiration of diminishing the pandemic and bringing prosperity on cards. With the new year, let’s celebrate the resurgence of new trends as they come. Ar. Sumit Dhawan, Founder & Principal Architect at Gurugram based architecture firm Cityspace’ 82 Architects talks about the new design trends coming in 2021.
Blue is the New black
Though ‘aqua’ might be the colour of 2021, its contemporary ‘blue’ will always be the new trick for creating elegant spaces. The versatility and sophistication that ‘Blue’ offers, provides the perfect ambience for an interior space. The juxtaposition which this colour can bring out through furniture pieces or soft furnishings can completely transform a dramatic new look. This colour fits everywhere, from a bedroom to private dining.
The Good Grey
Grey is a fashionable colour associated with minimalism.
This warmed tone of colour serves as a counterweight to balance out other vivid colours in the palette. It brings nuance by stimulating calming reactions. Ultimate Grey is also the Pantone Colour of the Year 2021.
The Gold Fever
Decorating with metallics and golds is super trendy. It’s nice to add a wee of “gilded age” splendour to your house without going overboard.
Adding the gold fever to your living room and at the same time offering a mid-century look adds an extravagant look for your house. Gold accents can also be added in the form of headboards and art pieces, denoting luxury.
Headboards & Headboard walls
Playing around with headboards & headboard walls enhance the overall bedroom aesthetic.
Syncing the patterns on the headboards and the background wall with a tweak is a stylish way to get a cosier and snug vibe to the entire bedroom.
Industrial Look for Rejuvenating Spaces
The industrial look has also become a popular trend for rejuvenating spaces where designers get their freedom of design and the occupants get a place to savour upon and vaunt.
These spaces can have an entirely different spirit from the rest of the house and can still be the trace the comprehension of the house perfectly.
Clear spaces have become decor enthusiasts’ favourites today. The idea of amalgamating luxury with minimalism can be achieved through statement decor pieces as these pieces become the focal point of any living space.
These pieces also invoke identity and taste of the inhabitants, making one’s house distinctively a ‘home’.
With an uptick in remote working today, home offices and studies have become an integral part of interior design schemes. It has become a need for formal working areas to coexist with other living areas. Chic spaces that kindle with natural light are being fabricated to become home offices today to give home-owners a pro-active working environment from their houses.
Trends are transient in nature, and they serve as a basis for interior designers & architects to build their ideas upon. There is no fixed formula as to what might guide the design of a home but a mix and match of some classic or personalised design elements can be a perfect fit for one’s desired aesthetic.
