The Themed Interior Choice

When, we design interiors for our homes, we do not go with a theme that say, it should be Indian folk style, Scandinavian or French Country style. There can be several reasons for it, to begin with it is hard to maintain and if the entire house has that theme, it can get quite boring to live in after a while. You don’t feel the need to have that scenic perfection that tends to fade, as if you are constantly living in a hotel. No doubt, these themed interiors do have a certain appealing effect on us. There are certain restaurants we often tend to visit not just because of good food, but mostly because the interiors are comfortable, classy, everything is proper and meticulously kept to perfection with the theme. It’s this artistic work that plays on the human psychology and gives a good feeling. Just like a vacation, everything about the hotel room or the holiday home that was perfect and you had a wonderful time.

Themed homes can be difficult to maintain and have a monotonous effect on us. Although, we don’t go with specific themes, what makes home interiors fun, special and exciting is that to our sub conscious mind it is all themed in a certain way. It can be contemporary, traditional, modern, but in gestures of maybe just a wall in the living room or a bedroom.

Our Kitchens can have a certain theme, but there are always going to be more cutleries and kitchenware that do not blend in but needed. So, in this journey of creating something new, perhaps with a theme in mind that can give your home a refreshing look for a longer time.

It comes with small steps- it can be your balcony, you can have the Tuscan themed balcony. It sure will add as an excellent feature to your home. You can create the French Country Style theme bedroom wall that has soft colour with portraits or painting above the headboard or a popular favourite now is the black and white contemporary styled His ‘n’ Her bathrooms. Each one has its own theme and yet, there is a truth to the individuality to the interiors of your house that has been crafted into your home.

So, if you are looking for a refreshing touch to the interiors of your home, try this trend of themed walls. It might just be what you are looking for.

Are your home interiors positive energy compliant?

It’s not just the 4 walls of the house that makes it your home. It is the atmosphere and ambience you create within those walls the energy, the environment that dwells in your heart. While, having the architectural position of the main door, the kitchen window, the locker location properly placed as per “vaastu”.

The new generation, is not about the rules and regulations of religious beliefs (no offense to those who believe and follow) but majority are more into positive energy. It is more about getting that positive vibe, when you leave home for work in the morning, the good positive feeling when you return after a long day of work. It is believed that colors do play a major role in emitting positive energy or, just a placing certain furniture in a certain way.

It is a growing trend to keep wind chimes at certain windows, while keeping certain show pieces and not painting walls of a particular color. Now, while my colleague believes that yellow color in the wall at the entrance of her home emits positive energy to her family and the people who visit her home. My friend believes purple is lucky as per her star sign. I have found that different people have different needs, beliefs and each need to be prioritized and respected.

While colors work for some, for others it is more about the furniture placement along with combining different styles of furniture that is urban latest. On a recent stay at a holiday home, I fell in love with the way the place was styled – so chic, urban and yet had that gentle emit of classic, rustic look. I kept thinking the entire time it was the combination of old and new that gives this place classy, comfy yet urban modern look. During a brunch conversation with the owner, my curiosity got me a very interesting topic to do a bit of research on. The 70’s style wooden chairs in the portico, the early 1900’s wall light fixtures in the bedroom, the rose wood cupboards  polished and shining. You could tell they were a few decade old but classic designs. The bed, the dresser, the flooring everything looked very up to date and urban. The owner had mentioned that it was her way of keeping positivity by not getting rid of the furniture, light fixtures of the older generation. Of course, not every item will stay beyond a certain time but what can be retained. It was more about the Mix ‘n’ Match of classic style with the urban.

At Flapto, its these needs and beliefs that are given a heeding ear and we respect and make sure that whatever style helps bring positivity in your homes. Our experts will do that for you interiors.

No doubt, in that bargain we got some very good interior designs for our homes. But it is the day and age where it is more about comfort and style in the right blend. It can be a simple bachelor pad which is not only comfortable for the person living in but also speaks of a classic sense of style or displays the urban lifestyle of a workaholic man.

With all the new designs for each season, most of us love our houses, bachelor pads, apartments, condos to look stylish in every season be it summer, winter or monsoon.

To keep all these concerns as a priority I did find myself looking into some basic yet interesting new designs of wardrobe for my bedroom and cabinets for my kitchen. Basically, it was the simple new rug in my living room and the new set of cushion covers that are good to make a style statement all year round but also give my room a whole new look and feel within the budget.
