It’s true that upcoming fashion trends can inspire your home design. There are so many great trends coming into view, such as the classic white collared shirt. These trends will give you a clear direction on how to spice up a tired room or just add the right touch to complete your space.
Fur Inspiration Board
There is an obvious fur trend. Faux fur is hip this fall in clothing, but we are seeing a lot of it being added to rooms. With a more Scandinavian and mid-century modern styling, adding fur throws, pillows, and rugs to rooms seem to pump up the volume and warmth of stark spaces.
White Shirt Inspiration Board
Get ready to love your white collared oxford cotton shirt again. The runways are embracing this look and so should your living spaces. Most of us can agree that a touch of white just lends itself to calm, serene, and clean beauty that all of our homes need, especially in the bedroom.
Add cotton linen duvets and blankets to beds or white curtains to windows, which will allow a lot of natural lighting into rooms. White furnishings is another trend that many furniture retailers are catching on to, so you shouldn’t have a hard time finding dining chairs in white to replace your traditional wooden hasbeens. Yes, a simple change in chairs, upholstery, or paint will give your tired rooms brighter and happier results.
Velvet Inspiration Board
There is nothing better than the soft sheen and touch of true velvet. It is regal and noble in its look and, let’s face it, a plain pair of jeans gets a great makeover when worn with a posh velvet jacket. What’s interesting about velvet is that it can be made from all sorts of base materials. Silk velvet has the softest hand compared to a polyester or cotton velvet, which makes it ideal for clothing.
Its durability also depends on what type of base fabric is used. It’s recommended that you use a cotton or polyester-based velvet fabric for upholstered cushions, draperies, and other areas of the home that need a reliable, long-lasting material to deal with unpredictable elements of the home. The true beauty of velvet is found in the amazing hand and style it provides to furnishings and soft goods.
Patchwork Inspiration Board
This is a fairly new trend that you will either love or hate. The idea is a look that is more homemade or homespun, which lends to a more Do-It-Yourself styling to the home. Clothing is one area that is popular with maxi dresses and ponchos. These can be made with yarn or with fabrics and textiles that are created to give a more homegrown styling.
The way this is being introduced to interiors is mimicking patchwork your grandmother may have knitted or quilted for you on a pillow, bed spread, or throw blanket. The subtle and more restrained you are with this tiling, the better. Make these patchwork pieces a focal point to a room or just a homey addition to give a relaxed vibe, like the Scandinavian room below.
Eastern Influence Board
Get cultural and ethnic with your clothing and decor this fall. From dragons expanding down a Valentino gown to tons of lace and gold, the runway was inundated with Chinese influence this season. Eastern influence is also hitting interior design big time!
From countries like India and China, your interior rooms are begging for cool, Asian soft goods and furnishings. The Art Deco years were hugely influenced by the East, and it looks to be coming back around. Add Tansu chests, bamboo chair framed furniture, gilded fabrics, and motif porcelain stools to give your home a global feel of rich history.
