Sachin Gupta, Founder and Principal Designer of Beyond Designs gives us his take on décor trends, his personal preferences and some great tips to accessorise your living spaces

Where colour scheme is concerned, my style is to keep the surfaces and backgrounds neutral with trendy shades of mushroom, deep grey, soft charcoal, pale blue, etc, and then use pop out colours for furniture, accessories, art works and such. The colours of the accessories can either complement or contrast the background. A few touches of bright shades and metallic sheen create interest.

Neo-classic or vintage classic is very much in vogue. This is something I have been doing for a long time – contemporarising classic or vintage pieces is my forte. Wing chairs, winged beds and deep sofas in chesterfield style… are all back in fashion. Pair these with modern furniture to create a wonderful fusion. For example, a modern table with vintage style chairs is an eye-catching combination.

Wall Art and Accessories:
Indian contemporary art is something that will never go out of style. Even traditional art with modern or contemporary frames­ – large, out of the ordinary frames, repeated patterns of art works / photographs are always in. Going quirky with the art is another way of introducing a surprise element.

Table lamps, candle stands, glassware are the smaller accents that you can choose to create eclectism. Apart from that, a signature console or a piece of furniture, a wall paneled in wood or embossed leather, dressed up ceilings with fabric cladding or gothic structures, can also act as great accessories. Western classic style with all its details and layers is in, minimalism is going out.

Beyond Designs will be exhibiting at India Design ID 2019!
