Now that summer is upon us, do you think lighting trends tend to be gravitate and how so?

Interior lighting is a central aspect of your home’s design. You can manipulate your home’s atmosphere just by how you position the lighting and the kind of fixtures you use. What works in the living room will not necessarily work in the kitchen or the bedroom. The lighting must reflect the functions and feel of each space.

A few tips for 2018
-This year rose gold is the key colour; it brings its own elegance together with a sense of decadence.
-Modern décor is based mostly on clean forms. Whether it is a modern couch, a modern kitchen or modern lighting, excessive ornamentation is losing favor.
-For certain areas of the house, I would recommend bigger fixtures. The aim is to create a “Wow” factor and attract instant attention. More than lighting, these fixtures act as centerpieces.

What kind of fabrics and colour palette can you suggest for the summer season?

Ice-cream pastels, indigo blues, glittery golds and super zingy color pops, these are all trends for 2018.
Reflecting colorful approach to design your fabric is paramount. Velvet & linen fabrics feature abstract & geometric patterns in both neutral and vibrant colors and perfect choice for summer season.

What's a big no no for summer decor?

Symmetry creates a sense of order and calm, but too much of this good thing can make a room feel static. So, shake things up. If your furniture is arranged symmetrically, hang wall art asymmetrically, or go free-form with the furniture and let your artwork add grounding symmetry.
