Scandi Nest

The Scandinavian theme is dominated by white and pastel and is a minimalistic approach with a sense of sophistication and a sense of satisfaction and calmness into the space. The theme uses pastel as it brings softness and enhances the grace of the living space and this is all about clean lines, materials and patterns. Ar. Tushar Kothawade, Co-founder, Studio Infinity tells us more.

Urban Elegance

This trend is influenced from contemporary and minimalist design style and is all about grey tones. This palette represents a strong character with the inclusion of marble and terrazzo, that brings confidence and sophistication. Anna Drummond, Director, CoLAB Design Studio tells us more.


Influenced by ‘handmade’ trends that have craft at their core Artisan is a response to a cultural phenomenon of people wanting to come together to craft. These designs instantly add a distinct and personal touch to any interior space. Minnie Bhatt, Design Director at Minnie Bhatt Design tells us more.

Wild Side

This is a very unconventional, distressed and bold design direction, that creates a raw and discerning look that makes any space stand out through the nobility and glamour of the materials used. Akshat Bhatt, Principal Architect, Architecture Discipline tells us more.

This trend represents a durability and evergreen in terms of spaces that never go out of style. Think of a warm, very farm house kind comfort with use of Teak, Walnut and Mahogany woods that is mature and classic. Rahul Menon, Co- Founder & Chief Architect, studio TAB tells us more.


This trend is in the space of elegance and redefined sophistication. It is fusion of materials like wood, marble, metallic, bright and contrasting colours. Ar. Manisha Hakim, Associate & Head, Interiors, Urbanscape Architects tells us more.

Black Magic

Playing with drama, grey tones provides the greatest contrast when teamed with white. If you use it in a smart way, black gives an elegant and sophisticated air to interior space. Amardeep Gulri, Founder & Principal Designer, Deco-Arte tells us more.


Based on the contrast of material and colour, this trend plays with two different elements of design that are completely opposite to each other. Contrast is great for creating a focal point, giving objects a greater visual weight while balancing the ambience. Indrajit Kembhavi, Managing Partner, Kembhavi Architecture Foundation tells us more.
