From big entrepreneur homes to hippest of restaurants, Studio Osmosis in its 7 year journey has transformed spaces with a knack for providing that X factor that makes them stand apart from the rest. Even homes as small as 450 sqft elude luxury and pent houses transform into cosy spaces where the families enjoy interacting with each other. Every office designed by StudioOsmosis has at least one element of design that leaves an impression in the mind of the visitor while for their fantastic restaurant designs the only testimony is repeat customers. Here, Shilpa and Sameer Balvally, Founder Partners of Studio Osmosis tell us 7 trends in interior design that are going to be BIG in 2017
1. 2017 is going to see a lot of monochromatic colour palettes with some functional highlights. The focus will be on using different materials and textures, but of the same colour subtly tickling the senses.
2. Natural materials will continue to be a popular choice. The key will be in using the same materials more creatively and using technology to further highlight their natural beauty. A good example would be laser cut marble with modern patterns.
3. Lighting will see a focal shift in 2017. Ceilings will do more talking, while the floors can rest in peace with cluster lighting being replaced with sleeker and innovative in ceiling lights, one or two big lights that not just illuminate the space but also make a statement. Mood lighting will play an important role with highlighters as opposed to evenly distributed lights.
4. Offices are turning into boutique spaces where use of material and concepts are turning mundane office spaces into a fun space. 2017 will see designers experimenting with materials even in offices, and natural materials and finishes will make their way to office spaces as well.
5. Gloss is out and matt is in. Be it metal, stone or paint. Add to that a touch of green, be it through a vertical garden or a hanging planter light and you are sorted.
6. Geometric compositions will rule 2017. Designers will play with not just materials but juxtapose patterns in textiles, flooring and wall cladding to make a statement design.
7. Art will rule in 2017. Focus will be on commissioning upcoming artists and promoting new material and interesting concepts in art that flow with the space. Further customising soft furnishing complementing the colour palette of the art, will be another trend that will see its presence felt in 2017
