RUSTIC FURNISHINGS and designs are ruling interior concepts at present. With rustic finishing to tiles, textures and colours, handloom and handmade stuff is also making its way into living rooms and bedrooms.
Interior designer Shreya Bhargav from Vidyanagar (Gujarat) said this at a three-day free interior and architecture consultancy being organised by Fabindia at its showroom at 580, MG Road, from today. Shreya would give tips on home décor and interiors to the customers visiting Fabindia.
Shreya explained that interior designing depended largely on décor and colours of a place. Still, rustic is in at this time whether it be for tiles, textures or fabrics. Jute, cane and banana papers are also being used largely.
Shreya told Hindustan Times that wooden finish in rough form is becoming popular for furniture. The latest colours used for walls or tiles are purple, shades of pink, exotic shades of crimson, violet, deep maroon and plum.
The style for curtains has witnessed a change and has shifted to sheer curtains. Sheer curtains are one layer of curtain made of thick fabric and the other one with light, transparent fabric to let the light come in.
Embossed fabrics are used for the secondary curtain so that the light comes in form of different patterns like flowers or other shapes.
Fabindia store manager Manu Hasija informed that there was a lucky draw offer at both the Fabindia showrooms (in Treasure Island and at MG Road). The customers would be given a lucky draw coupon on a billing of Rs 1,500 or more and draw would be held in the first week of July.
The prize for the draw would be a room setting of the winner’s choice worth Rs 10,000. The consultancy sessions would be held up to June 4 between 4.00-7.30 pm everyday.
