Home improvements: The latest luxury trends

This year will redefine luxury, with trends that will tell a story of authenticity.

This year will redefine luxury, with trends that will tell a story of authenticity. Designers are shifting away from an exclusively aesthetic approach. There’s a much-needed balance between comfort, aesthetics and iconic lush attributes. Although the interior-design market continues to demand luxury, comfort is the key to making a space inviting.

To strike this balance, it’s important to avoid underestimating the quality of materials. A fine craftsman will always ensure that their product is pleasing both on the interior and exterior.

This year will see an increase in the use of oversaturated natural hues, soft curved lines and organic shapes, with stunning stone and marble accents now on-trend. Mood lighting is also a necessity to finish this season’s trends with a polished glow. Expect to see more clear lines and chromatic colour schemes mimicked from the Bauhaus style, with an enriched palette of softer pastels, accentuated with tones and textures of natural materials.
