FROM RUN­WAY TO HOME

In this day and age of over­sat­u­rated in­spi­ra­tions, it’s not hard to be­lieve that de­sign is a fluid thing from run­way to home. Here’s where they both in­ter­lap!

Fashion de­sign trends and how they im­pact in­te­rior fur­nish­ings and styles!

BLACK AND WHITE BOWS IN

Black is as time­less as it is ab­so­lutely beau­ti­ful. More re­cently, how­ever, many designers have taken to pair­ing it with its po­lar op­po­site: white. In­deed, the crisp con­trast­ing of these two tones serve to up­lift and ac­cen­tu­ate the other, which means pat­terns that incorporat­e both are both stark and eye-catch­ing. They’ve been rock­ing many a run­way-lineup, and make no mis­take: they’ll look just as chic at home.

PLAY­ING IN THE BLUES

Pop­u­lar in top styles this sea­son, soft, clear­wa­ter blues have be­come the dar­ling main­stay of dreamy run­way looks along­side warmer sands, vi­brant yel­lows, and dusty rose. And while blue has al­ways been there, the in­creas­ing in­ter­est in the shade is made all the more prom­i­nent through its use by top fashion brands like Givenchy, Bad­g­ley Mis­chka, and Emilia Wick­stead. And be­cause it’s such an easy colour to wear, it goes without say­ing that it’s an even eas­ier colour to incorporat­e at home; soft, dreamy, com­fort­ing, and re­mark­ably sooth­ing.

COM­ING IN STRONG

Mil­i­taris­tic styles and full-tai­lored suits have ab­so­lutely dom­i­nated fashion line-ups this sea­son, and we’re tick­led pink about that! This trans­lates well to the home aes­thetic, and we’re more than ex­cited to bring in the clean, crisp lines and sleek so­phis­ti­ca­tion! Say hello to strong sil­hou­ettes that de­mand at­ten­tion, and high-qual­ity de­signs that speak to dura­bil­ity and sus­tain­abil­ity. Add leather ac­cents to up the ante, and don’t for­get to accessoris­e ap­pro­pri­ately.

BRING­ING BACK THE NEON

On the di­rect op­po­site of the spec­trum and a full 180 de­grees away from the dusky hues of sum­mer, bright neon tones rem­i­nis­cent of the disco era have ex­ploded with great suc­cess! Bring in the bright jewel tones and slap on the vi­brant yel­low and green neons! Highlighte­r hues are your friend this sea­son, so use them well whether as ac­cents, or as the numero uno star­let that is set to make your out­fit (or home) pop! What­ever the case, this is a trend to have fun with, and it is definitely not for the faint of heart.

COLOUR BLOCK­ING BLISS

Long a main­stay of run­ways and homes alike, the con­cept of colour block­ing en­tails bring­ing to­gether two or more tones that are then played off each other, thereby cre­at­ing an ap­peal­ing and strik­ing vis­ual con­trast. What this does is high­light struc­ture, ac­cen­tu­at­ing sil­hou­ettes and prof­fer­ing ra­zoredge sharp­ness when it comes to the fi­nal look. At home, the use of mul­ti­ple colours in neatly-sec­tioned ar­eas serves to brighten up the look of your space, lend­ing a mod­ern and con­tem­po­rary edge.

HOT OFF THE PRESS

An­i­mal prints are back, and they cer­tainly look to be here to stay! Take a walk along any fashion street in any mall, and you’d be hard pressed to find a win­dow dis­play miss­ing iconic an­i­mal prints the likes of leop­ard, tiger, ze­bra, and in some cases, even snake­skin. As with all state­ment-type things, re­mem­ber to add as you go and to never go over­board. Hints of prints home is a great idea, how­ever, and we’re all for in­cor­po­rat­ing your favourites in un­con­ven­tional ways, from up­hol­stery to wall­pa­per to accessorie­s.

A METAL­LIC EDGE

Metal­lic de­tails and edgy looks con­tinue to be pop­u­lar in the sea­son. With big names in the high fashion in­dus­try such as Marc Ja­cobs and Tadashi Shoji show­cas­ing the use of high-shine fab­rics on the run­way, it is clear to see a lit­tle gleam and a lit­tle shine is in the stars. At home, metallics have long been incorporat­ed into the con­tem­po­rary aes­thetic; rose gold accessorie­s, light­ing fix­tures, and fur­ni­ture ac­cents re­main one of the main­stays of fur­ni­ture de­sign. Con­sider ac­cents for just a hint of un­der­stated luxe.

ALL THE RIGHT MIXERS

Too much of a good thing can be ab­so­lutely won­der­ful, and in the world of aes­thet­ics and de­sign, it is ab­so­lutely ac­cu­rate. While a clean and min­i­mal­is­tic pal­ette can be a breath of fresh air, a max­i­mal­ist touch be­fits a max­i­mal­ist per­son­al­ity. If colours and pat­terns are right up your al­ley, con­sider mix­ing pat­terns to give your space an ex­tra di­men­sion. If the idea of mul­ti­ple pat­terns wor­ries you a lit­tle, start small; tex­tured fab­rics, her­ring­bone floors, or printed wall­pa­per all pro­vide that same edge of hav­ing a ‘pat­tern’ without be­com­ing over­done.
