From the runway to the family room
London Fashion Week recently saw designers from across the globe gather in the capital to showcase the latest trends. Taking inspiration straight from the catwalk, our team of interior designers show you how to introduce the hottest styles into your home…
Models wowed the crowds in beautiful and daring colour combinations, which, when brought into the home, will instantly brighten and inject boldness into your decor. This year, Mulberry matched spearmint green hues with Cadbury purple to create bold statement pieces in its catwalk collection. Infuse this trend into your home by painting a statement wall one colour to provide a contrasting backdrop to cold coloured home accessories, such as cushions or throws.
Spring will soon be in full swing, which means that stunning floral motifs have made their way back onto the catwalk. This trend can be easily integrated into the home by giving soft furnishings, such as curtains, pillows and duvet sets, a stylish and seasonable update. If you are feeling daring, combine lots of different florals in one room, including wallpaper and artwork.
Traditionally seen as a winter trend, this woven design is perfect for stylish country decor all year-round. Think tweed cushion covers or even tweed placemats in the kitchen for a simple update that makes a big statement.
Sometimes bolder is better and on the catwalk this could definitely be seen. Models paraded in beautifully bold, block colours – a trend that can easily be brought into the home. A room can be made instantly bolder by bringing in an oversized rug, jewel coloured sofas or even repainting the walls a head-turning colour.
As the British weather can be so unpredictable, knitwear still has a place in your home this season with oversized knitted blankets and cushions in the bedroom, or by investing in a super chunky knit blanket for your living area. If you’re feeling creative, you could even knit the blanket yourself using a handy online tutorial.
T-shirts featuring loud slogans also stormed the runway this year. These can be brought into the home quite easily, with framed quotes casually placed against walls, lined up on picture shelves or grouped in statement galleries, to add character to your decor and giving each room its own voice and personality!
