It’s that time of year again we get a preview of next years fashion trends at London’s Fashion week. Highlights from the show were Top Shop’s gingham range and fun accessories reminiscent of the 60’s/70’s classic vintage pineapple ice bucket brought to the catwalk by Carmen Miranda recreated in her pineapple face clutch-handbag. Moving onto the next decade we saw an 80’s inspired collection by Mother of Pearl.
The latest clothing trends seen on our high street tend to follow through into designs for home interiors. Harper’s Bazaar examined the close link between the catwalk and interior fashions, they stated that the graphic impact seen on the catwalks has been used in our homes interiors through creating a white interior and picking out items such as large window frames in black – recreating this fashion concept. Denim very popular at last years fashion show has been recreated in soft furnishing designs, hot pinks have also been very popular both on the catwalk and in home styling – cooler shades of pinks such as Benjamin Moores Whispy Pinks have featured heavily in interior magazines this year.
If you want to keep your house design up to date the best way to achieve this is to use your walls as a blank canvas, by painting a soft white colour or pale greys, then introduce the latest colours in your soft furnishings. Colours to watch out for next year are pale pinks, mango yellow, bright blues, greens and gingham patterns.
