Contemporary design features continue to hold sway, although the move away from minimalism, harsh lines and a clinical ambiance is replaced with a touch of old world warmth. Modern design meets mid-century interior concepts to create spaces that give us the best of both worldsâ€¦old and new. Eclecticism is in. This is the time when that colonial/antique piece of furniture can be placed alongside your contemporary straight-line sofas, and not look out of place. Mix and match is the trend as aesthetic independence becomes more pronounced. Ornate fixtures and accessories alongside straight-line minimalist metal furniture would not be incongruous.Â Colours are bold. Green is the dominant colour this year. A deeply vibrant green. Followed by pumpkin orange, bright redâ€”in tones from terracotta to cayenne. Orange, Yellow, Goldâ€”dominating the palette. Deep cinnamon, luxurious violets, turquoise and of course the other colour that is hotâ€”Pinkâ€”bright and daring.
