Blankets adorn home interiors in vibrant colours

Feb '07
Blankets are increasingly being used for interior decoration in homes, with designers and decorators wanting them to be attractive, manageable and practical. Wool, cashmere and cotton blankets are in.

Playfulness is not in fashion anymore, current trend in interior decoration is vibrant colours according to Gunnar Frank, a trend researcher.

Frank opines that clarity, design and practicality are happening now. He has created many colour themes, first one being 'Constructive Power' which is associated with the seven primary colours.

German textile designer Anja Hueben opts for discreet looks in lieu of small patterns, sometimes there is only a large ornament printed on blankets designed by her.

Amongst Frank's other colour themes, 'Cubism Monochrome' is resulted from the combination of neutrals like black and white, clubbed with abstract decorative elements.

Yellow and blue, included in other themes, are anticipated to reign living rooms in the future. Red, terracotta and orange are also considered as hot colours.

Dark colours like brown, blackberry and dark green are used by interior designers preferring bolder shades. Further, geometric designs, diamond shapes and stripes are coming back into fashion.
