"There are two things that make a room timeless: a sense of history and a piece of the future."
— Charlotte Moss
This generation out of all knows the value of personalising one's space the most. We leave our homes for studies and work and live in rented spaces which now due to the economy feels will be our ultimate lifestyle. Our dreams in general are also different from those of our parents; we want to live in different cities and travel the world. In a nomadic lifestyle like such the only thing that helps us create a sense of home and comfort are our spaces that are coloured in our personalities.
And the people who understand this best are interior designers who mould utility and aesthetics into innovative designs that create the most impactful spaces, be it personal or social. We have curated a list of some homegrown interior designers that you can draw inspiration from in creating your own home.
