From Runway to Showroom: Interior Design Trends Inspired by Fashion
Interior design trends have been inspired by fashion for decades, and why not? The subtle curves, sharp lines, seemingly unlimited fabric patterns, and unique textiles used in runway fashion designs create an immense pallet of opportunity.
A few great examples we came across from LOCZIdesign on how fashion has inspired interior design trends include:
- Soft Neutrals, Textiles and Wools – The neutral monochromatic pallet used in Maiyet’s ensemble are mimicked perfectly by Grey and Scout through their paint and accessory choices and their use of sheep skin throws as ottoman covers perfectly represent the same textural look of Maiyet’s natural wool felt top.
- Color Blocking and Floral Inspiration – The inspiration of fashion on interior deign is not always about directly mimicking a specific outfit with an entire room. Sometimes it is in the elements, such as Josef Frank’s wall paper. The colors and blocked structured shapes are pulled directly from runway designer Etro’s Spring 2013 collection. Cool Hunter took this inspiration even farther in designing their dining vignette by incorporating Josef Frank’s wallpaper and silk flowers into their design.
- Black, White, and Bold Stripes – It is impossible not to see the direct inspiration from fashion in the bathroom design featured in California Home and Design’s Small Space Big Style editorial. The illustrated models blouse could have been placed directly on the walls of this powder room, the correlation is so apparent.
