Brand Alert- Sicis at Milan Design Week

In the recent edition of Milano Design Week, SICIS presented its own unique vision of interior décor: contamination of styles and a balanced inspiration between classical and contemporary that offer ambiences of sophisticated comfort and elegance.

A large residence welcomed the guests: each of the ten rooms, built and furnished according to a specific mood had been tailored on the market’s demand of originality, quality and completeness. The house opened to visitors as a magical entry, reproducing designs of the famous eighteenth century Japanese painter, Ito Jakuchu. They had thus been able to show the versatility of the VETRITE, a new and innovative covering material, used for floors and walls, to clad an entire wardrobe or a wellness room but also for exclusive panels with artistic mosaic, or table tops and other furniture.

They had focused particular attention on the upholstered pieces, creating a series of proposals that best express the renewed textile collection TESSERE. Eclectic and harmonious, elegant and sophisticated is the style that the Company feels is its own and this year they have been able to share the same with visitors.

Trend: Look Book 2014

I Have always said made-ups can change the look and mood of a room and putting those made ups together in an innovative way makes an Interior Stylist different from Interior Designer. StyleCity was invited by the new Home Centre at Pacific Mall, New Delhi to do up a few looks. So we decided to take one room set up and do up three different trends in the same space. Have a look and do let me know which you like or dislike the most!

Trend: Monochromatic Wonder
We often hear the words Monochrome and wonder what the trend analysts mean. In simple terms it is Black and White and all the shades that fall between, namely greys. This look is always chic and stylish and does well for all genders and all marital statuses. To add a bit of panache you can bring in a hint of reds, lavenders or even yellow and blue. This is definitely our favourite look, what do you think?

Trend: Eclectic Mix
We often wonder how we can create an eclectic look in a space. The first step is to understand what eclectic means. In laymen terms it is a combination of styles and tastes from different sources. In this case I leaned more towards Indian Kitsch, so the set up is a combination of bright colours and Indian motifs, while steering away from the traditional.

Trend: Colour Mania
We often hear colour is a great way to enhance a space, yet we get confused when we try to combine colours. The simplest way is to decide which colour family we want to go towards. In this case I decided to go for Primary colours and hence did the look with Red+Blue+Yellow. If these feel too stark for you, you can use tints (pastel forms) of these colours and create your look.

Trend: Powerful Black and White

Fashion to Décor: Geometrically yours, Black and White
Come summers and white is on everyone’s mind. From clothes to walls to white beaches and white snow. No one wants to be reminded of the heat, at least no one here in the South. Anyway this summer fashion designers have taken a combination of the fall’s Masculine and Springs Feminine trend to bring the perfect geometry;a Black and White graphic trend. This trend is a rage in fashion and I think looks gorgeous in décor, in fact better than the ramp according to me. Have a look, and trust me one trend you want to incorporate this summer is Black and White!

Trend: Parisian Flavour

Fashion to Décor: Trend Parisian Flavour
Continuing with the flavour of the week, we have Paris in our Fashion to Décor trend as well. We all know Paris is known for its chic fashion and style statement but it also influences our does it really influence décor? Well Eiffel Tower is one of the most popular graphics to be used on décor but even besides that, who would not like to bring home a bit of Paris, a smell (candles), a taste (champagne or Macaroon) or a touch into their Living space?

Trend Alert: Longing for Lace

Fashion to Décor- Trend Lace
There is something about lace besides the fact that it is definitely the most sensual fabric alongside silk, it is feminine and delicate yet mysterious and elegant. It has a vintage aura reminiscent of times gone by and yet can be just as modern while maintaining an allure of classic style. Fellow blogger Katie has done Trend Lace for this weeks Tag a Trend and we have taken the trend from Fashion to Décor. Showcasing today are products inspired from this intricate material- Lace*

Trend Alert: Peek a boo

We are all influenced by fashion. Even those who say they are not influenced by fashion are actually more influenced by fashion. Hence it is not shocking Decor gets a lot of its inspiration from season trends as seen on ramp. So to map out this years Spring-summer 2013 trends we got fashion designer Neti Jolly of XOXO to help us. To buy things from XOXO or simply ask Neti for fashion tips, log on to her Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/www.xoxo.co.in. Each week we showcase a new fashion trend and how we can incorporate it in Decor.

Trend: Peek-a-boo
Be sexy yet coy, the same feminine flavour is going to be seen this season through peek-a-boo dresses and tops. Dresses with the side cutouts, shirts with shoulders peeking out, tights with round cutouts and heart-shaped holes in the backs of dresses.Along with sheers and lace are all the trend for spring-summer 2013.
