From the Runway to Your Home

To truly get a grasp of current trends in interior design, you need not look further than the fashion runway.  This international mecca of style dictates what you will see in the home interior market.  The runway is the place to get a sneak peek at what colors, patterns, shapes and styles the home market will show for any particular season.

There were three standouts on the fall 2014 runway:  fur, bright color and bold pattern.  You can incorporate these elements into your home in a variety of ways.

When the first cool days of fall begin and you want to bring warmth to your interiors, faux fur is one way to do just that.  Used sparingly throughout the home, faux fur can add a touch of unexpected texture.  A plush area rug in the family room, a few throw pillows on the living room sofa, a luxurious faux mink throw at the foot of the bed or a chair seat upholstered in sheepskin add just the right touch of warmth and style.

Wake up tired rooms with bright paint, contrasting throw pillows and bold accessories.  Don’t forget the windows and floors.  Vibrantly hued fabrics at the windows will frame the room nicely and a rug that pulls in all the colors of the room will anchor the space.

Don’t be intimidated by bold patterns.  The key to successful mixing of patterns is scale and color.  Use patterns in varying styles and scales to balance the room.  Use one bold print and combine that with a smaller stripe and add geometrics.  Keep colors uniform.
