Fashion Trends Translated For Your Home

Fashion trends these days are getting stranger as the years go by. A few trends, though, are timeless and are always being reinvented in new, modern ways. One great thing about the fashion industry is that their trends are easily translatable to home decor trends. Don't believe me? Keep reading!

Try Going Monochromatic

Interiors that consist of a monochromatic colour scheme can be some of the most fabulous spaces. There truly are endless ways to design a room around differing shades of any colour of your choosing. Greyscale is the most popular for both fashion and interiors. With endless shades of black, grey, and white to choose from, you're bound to find a clothing or furniture piece to suit your style.

Add a Pop of Colour

Every now and again we want to stand out. The best way to do so is through adding a pop of colour to your outfit, such as a bold hued clothing or accessory piece, or stand-out makeup. Why limit our boldness to just our outfits? Add a classic furniture piece in a bright colour to your space to add freshness and interest. You don't always have to purchase brand new furniture either! Do you have a piece that is still functional, but the fabric is worn or outdated? Get it reupholstered in a fabulous fabric of your choosing and add fresh spin on an old classic!

Make a Statement With Leather

One of fashion's biggest luxury fabrics is leather. Be it a leather skirt, pants, jacket, or leather details on a shirt; it's very in. Luckily leather is not a new trend, nor is it a trend that will fade away any time soon. Just as with fashion, leather has always been a "must have" fabric to have in the home. A leather sofa added to a living room is a great way to make a bold statement, while still remaining family functional and aesthetically pleasing.

These are just a few ideas to get your mind thinking of different ways you can spice up your home using trends found on the runway. Coming up with different ideas may be fun, but executing a well-laid out plan may be difficult if not given proper direction. For this reason it is best to hire a trained professional whenever possible.
