Vasant Panchami has set us in the mood of welcoming the change and embracing the goodness of the spring season. And when we talk about change, Interior design is an area that has witnessed different shades with our ever changing demand and style over the years. There was a time when the spaces used to be filled with grand furniture, heavy curtains and huge chandeliers with tweaking happening every then and now. After the interior design world saw multiple shifts in human taste, a breath of fresh air came with minimalism which aims to cut down on the hoarding nature of an individual.
Our home space has always been an integral part of us. But since the pandemic devoured us, our casa also became a place of experimentation with people looking to break from the usual setup of their house and changing its interior appeal more frequently. Moreover, with the passing time, we have realised the importance of the environment and how it impacts our lives.
Human beings started from the lap of nature and are slowly moving back to it by bringing in greenery inside their home. Biophilic designs are the new trend in the market and as an interior designer, it is of paramount importance to understand the demand of the market and deliver unique style with your own individuality.
Hence, here are a few things that interior design landscape will witness post the onset of Vasant Panchami:
1. A Way For Natural Light:
Nowadays people vouch for natural lighting more than the use of heavy chandeliers or diffused lights during the daytime. Natural light boosts the mood and productivity of an individual and ensures well being of the household. An interior designer should factor it in and produce the same in his/her work. The strategic arrangement of furniture, orientation of relaxing areas and more should be done as such that the bountiful rays of sun should fill up the space. Celebrating Vasant Panchami, let’s also talk about the Indian system of interior designing. According to Vastu, natural light should not be obstructed while the lighting in the bedroom should be soothing and subtle.
2. Inclusion Of Green:
The colour green evokes a feeling of harmony, freshness, growth, prosperity and more, all going with the vibe of Vasant Panchami and spring. Inculcating it the design creates a soothing effect for the residents. As millennials and Gen Z are growing more aware of the environment, decorating the space with indoor plants is also in vogue. As an interior designer, you should create such space inside the home where plants can easily thrive because not everyone has a green thumb. People are also going for indoor plants that purify the air. Moreover, the kitchen gardens are also gaining popularity. Space for hydroponically grown plants should be created inside the kitchen to serve the residents better.
3. Sound Absorbing Solution:
Most of us today look for a life away from the hustle bustle of the city, however, it is not possible due to various factors. To provide you a calm environment inside your home, interior designers are going for a sound-absorbing solution. Installation of various materials that prove helpful in reducing or blocking the constant noise creates an acoustic environment. Moreover, even in the office spaces, theatres, concert halls, auditoriums, the sound proofing or sound absorbent materials are used to reduce the reverberation time.
4. Use Of Upcycled Product:
Houses and workspaces are evolving everyday to sync in with the goals of sustainability. Use of upcycled products is becoming a trend that none of us can overlook. Interior designers are also aligning themselves with the same goal and are strategically placing upcycled materials inside your home. Moreover, even in structuring a building, sustainable and upcycled products are used.
Interior design is an elaborate field that helps in improving the landscape. As a designer, the responsibility of improving the aesthetics of a space falls on you which you have to align with the latest trend as well as staying responsible towards nature. The population of millennials and Gen Z are more inclined towards the beauty of nature and want to inculcate it in their happy and safe spaces.
An interior designer in today’s challenging time is required to embrace the needs of the demography and understand the market to the core to deliver the impeccable work. As the spring season has entered today with the celebration of Vasant Panchami, biophilic designs are making a way into our life.
