Architecture & interior design are often two sides of the same coin, where architecture is more of a generalized subject, interior design is more personalized as compared to architecture, landscape design or any other design engineering. When it comes to interior designing, a designer has to come up with a strong concept that epitomizes the personality of an individual. Sometimes a client faces difficulty to decipher what they want, hence they hire a designer for their aid. Each individual has a diverse taste in design and everyone wants their space to look unique and exceptionally good. Some like classical designs, whereas some like hard core contemporary design.

With more exposure to the western culture, people have started adapting to innovative ideas. See any pub/bar, dance club, a restaurant, homes, or even a building lobby, everything is designed around a particular theme. Concepts have become pre-requisites to design any space.What I see around the city these days, is vibrancy in design. Most of the night life places have a hard rustic texture towards it.The use of wood and stone as primary materials have taken over the entire entertainment industry. Most of the designers are going contemporary but are using the same age old materials like wood, glass, bricks, fiber and stone. The rustic look is the new happening trend. These elements with proper focus lighting give out a vibrant look, which is essential for such places.

On the other hand, residential and commercial spaces have chosen subtlety over vibrancy. Simple, yet bold designs have paved way to what we call these days, minimalistic designs.  People have realized the true nature of simplicity in design and minimalism is the most upcoming concept in residential spaces. Indirect lighting with a dimmer controller to adjust the intensity of the lumens thrown by the lights as per the mood in the trend that’s been followed.

Some designers also trying to have a rustic concept for the residential houses. The rise of textures in paints have given many options to designers and it has become very convenient to find textures replicating concrete, stone, and metal using paints. Due to high competition in the market, innovation has been achieved in the material industry using simple techniques to uplift the designs. With a wide variety of materials & lighting options available in the market today, the designers have abundant options to play with their designs.

In a nutshell, the designs have become simpler (minimalistic) but with bold use of materials and lighting. It expresses all characteristics of a human being be it the ego, boldness, harmony, simplicity, humbleness, precision and even confusion.
