Spring 2015 Trends that inspired Interior Design
With every new season, comes fresh color stories and new perspectives on wardrobes and living spaces. Therefore, fashion and interior designers put together the tools to create the newest and hottest trends. What maybe you don’t know is that fashion influences interior design and vice versa.
During September’s Fashion Weeks, the world gets a preview of which direction the fashion winds are blowing for the upcoming year. But clothing designers aren’t the only ones influenced by fashion week. These five trends prove that beautiful concepts can be easily integrated from runway to room.
The runway often seems too avant-garde to ever work in real life. For every leather jumpsuit, there’s a bathroom painted black, and for every beaded headdress, there is a fringed lampshade. For every pair of shoes, there is a beautiful armoire.
LOOSE GEOMETRIC LINES
Debuted at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Carolina Herrera’s Spring Collection brings together a class but yet modern style, as we can see in those ball gown covered in some kind of broken mosaic.
Loose geometric shapes have already been spreading like wildfire, as evidenced by this statement wall in The Hunted Interior‘s 2014 home tour. The hand-painted technique really only requires a calming shade of paint and a little bit of imagination.
This is the color of the moment: a rich, deep yellow seen in a variety of textures and styles on the NYFW runways of everyone from Michael Kors to Tory Burch (pictured). Whether it’s splashed on midi-length dresses or overcoats and capes, ochre is the season’s hottest color.
Ochre is also becoming more popular when it comes to home design, practically demanding a standing ovation when paired with rich velvet jewel tones. This effect can be witnessed in the seating area of The Fig House, a colorful event venue in Los Angeles whose interiors were designed by Emily Henderson. She clearly understands ochre’s ability to pack a visual punch.
The structured metallic jacket and the organically patterned trousers are near-on perfectly mirrored with the Drapesse chair by KOKET. This amazing piece of furniture, as well as Cavalli’s collection, will light up the room. As a tribute to Dorothy Draper‘s high style, we took the classic Drapesse chair and added a bit of KOKET lavish & sensuous edge. A fresh and incredible trend for your home this year.
COBALT AND STEEP BLUES
Cobalt blue isn’t going anywhere for quite a while, having made splashes at several Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 runway shows, including Rebecca Taylor’s. It’s a bold enough hue to stand on its own (like in the pictured ensemble), but it still has a special ability to complement the lighter blues in the color family.
These deep blues are being incorporated into a home design, too, as pictured through the attractive integration of textiles and wall hangings in the home of Mandy Kellogg Rye (founder of design blog and boutique Waiting on Martha). The mix of blues and patterns provide necessary pops of color, all while allowing Gray Malin’s “On Top of Aspen Mountain” photo to have a co-starring role in the overall decor.
BLACK AND WHITE GRAPHIC PRINTS
Sharp contrasts in modern prints continue to grace the runway, as seen in this Carolina Herrera dress. The black-and-white color scheme is old hat to fashionistas—the trend has played out in different styles throughout the decades, from Marlene Dietrich’s tuxedo in Morocco (1930) to Jean Seberg’s horizontal stripes in Breathless (1960) to Julia Roberts’ Valentino at the 2001 Academy Awards.
Modern graphic prints are taking center stage both on and off the runway. In their Fall/Winter 2014 line, Scandinavian design company Oyoy integrates graphic textiles with soft neutral woods and hints of mint. Just about any color can be used with these fun black and white prints, designed for both the modern and timeless heart.
