  • Color, color what color do you choose?

A color palette, when used rightly, is the most powerful tool in your arsenal to create any mood, look and feel. It’s vital to understand the mood of each color and what it adds to the overall design. Modern designs are all about class and sophistication with a bit of personality. Upcoming color trends include muted palettes and neutral tones with bold color blocks.

  • Perfect Imperfections

Adding a  touch of old to new brings out the best in your designs. From cafes to restaurants, modern work spaces and even homes have started to include rustic touches to the interiors. You can draw your inspiration from natural surroundings in terms of colors, textures and materials. Some things to keep in mind are having open spaces, bringing in organic elements, choosing earthy tones and most importantly keep it light and fresh!

  • Play 20 questions

Always remember to ask yourself the holy grail of w’s – why, what, where. 

  • Why do you need a certain piece of furniture or a certain color? 

[Think about need, usage and function]

  • What will help you achieve your desirable outcome?

[Think about textures, materials, elements, colors, lighting etc]

  • Where does this fit into the bigger picture? 

[Think about space, composition and budget]

  • Less is more!

Making a statement is Declutter and opt for simple yet striking designs.  A modern, contemporary interior is all about standing out. Accentuate spaces with a neutral palette and a bold piece that makes a statement!
