Inspired by the facets of our nation, here are 3 ways to celebrate ‘Patriotism with Panache’ and revamp your home decor.
HONOUR OUR HERITAGE
Our heritage helps us stay connected with our rich past but also help us move forward with confidence. This trend recommends reviving aspects of our lifestyle that are rooted in tradition
Expression in Décor:Ethnic and Traditional Trend

Colour combinations, motifs and prints that are reminiscent of folk art are a great option. Bright reds, yellows and orange paired with brightly coloured furnishings will create a vibrant summery feel indoors all through the year.
