DESIGNER TIPS ON SPRUCING UP YOUR FALL DÉCOR

Like every year, fall is everything beautiful, everything sober, everything mellow.

Fall Article 06-11-17

The general trend for the seasonal look as far as interiors are concerned is a subtle aesthetic that has a warm vibe to it. Let’s look at some of the most trending designer tips for a guide to a sublime fall look.

Autumnal Aesthetics: Colors, Textures, Motifs
There has been a seasonal aesthetic associated quite liberally with fall. The typical color (or lack thereof) is white or gray. For 2017, more and more interior artists are going for a colorless design wherein the whole play is in texture and shape. This paints a mellow scene– typical autumnal.

Get the look: Here’s a wall adorned with wallpapers from Nirmals range of home décor.

Fall is Layers, Fall is Warmth
Adding more layers symbolizes empathy and comfort. A common motif this fall will be layered. Layer up using cushions, blankets, high rise mattresses and warm colors for bedspreads.

Outdoor Décor

Fall Article 06-11-17 3

Décor for your balconies or front/back yards is a hit! Bedeck your porches with wooden tables, eclectic benches and throw pillows. Host guests outdoor on a couch adorned with bright, funky upholstery to create a contrast with the dull scenes outside.
Window Treatment

Fall Article 06-11-17 4

The window sill has been a constant favorite fall/winter spot for many. Do away with blinds and contrast your curtains with the rest of the décor in the living rooms. Use a stand-alone chair to enhance the lost-winter-traveler look as you take in all of the seasonal beauty of changing leaves and covered pavements sitting by the window this fall.

RUSTIC MEETS REFINED
Most definitely, the most trending look this fall season will be the Rustic-meets-Refined look.

Through Miss Anwesha Kapoor’s eyes:

Somehow that wall wasn’t making sense anymore. It stares at us blankly when we dine out in the hall, having nothing to offer. I wanted some fresh inspiration to shake me up and that’s when I thought I would want my wall to be articulate.

Through Nishant’s eyes:

Every morning I woke up, the wall facing me comes crashing down on me as if I am supposed to bear its weight of melancholy. This very wall is supposed to inspire me every morning like a vision board. That’s when I decided I need it all to be done anew.

Through Nikita Parekh’s eyes:

I like loftier things, the extraordinaire because life’s too dull already to settle for monotony. I like to paint my canvas with all the colours to create a chimera of abundance and beauty. I did the same with one of my living room walls.

Through Tam’s eyes:

I had to amp up the mood of the walls in my jamming studio.  That is the only place in my house I hang out at most of the time, with my friends. So, magic happened! The gigs also happened!

ADVENTURES OF A GALA DINING ROOM

Behind every beautiful home, lies a speck of inspiration.

On a summer day, Natya came home along with her bunch of school friends as it was their sleep-over day. When led through the stairs to the dining room for dinner, it was a jaw-dropping experience for Natya’s friends.

article 04-05 pic 2

The interior décor of the dining room and the hallway was an aesthetic delight: drapes with metallic royal tones emphasized with chic tie-backs, an artifice that sat in a corner nuanced with traditional motifs and lush colours against the wall covered with a bewitching turquoise wall-cover neatly designed, a fluffy and soft-hued rug underlining the two sets of flower vases that stood at either sides of a magnificent dining table.

The view was picturesque and looked like a post-modern celebration of artistic fragments culminating to produce an eclectic whole.

article 04-05 pic 3.jpg

It was Natya’s mother who had gathered inspiration for her interiors as she was a connoisseur of the arts. A mental picture of a gala dining room was its inception and, getting the different furnishing ensembles was the next step. It was an ad on a popular décor magazine of the Yugantar collection at Nirmals Furnishing that led her to the Nirmals Studio. The rest was a dream sweetly manifested into becoming a melange of aesthetically enriching décor ensembles. Nirmals Studio houses an exhilarating range of inspiring décor ensembles from internationally recognised brands such as Sunbrella etc. Stop by at the store for some much needed inspiration!
