Fashion-Inspired Home Decor for Fall
It’s that time of year again: Fashion magazines have released their fat, glossy September issues, and our eyes are glued to the latest trends and styles to grace the runway – and, soon, our closets.
Find inspiration for your home design in this fall’s fashion magazines – the colors, patterns, textures, and overall aesthetic translate so well. Here are three favorite fall fashion looks that can easily go from runway to entry way.
This fall, some of the must-see designers of New York Fashion Week went a little dark, with looks reminiscent of a grown-up Wednesday Addams. Particularly into this trend were Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen and Thom Browne. Neither of the esteemed designers are new to couture, nor are they shy, making theirs the best shows to spot new and evolving trends.
Uniform in style and often monochromatic, think of this trend as Dark Diva. A reinvention of the color black, Dark Diva showcases subtle restraint and precise execution in all design facets.
If this style appeals to you, consider reflecting your closet in your home with modern steampunk lighting fixtures, animal-inspired side tables, and eerily beautiful portraits and paintings. Dark Diva can also serve as a foundation design for more lively colors in a few months when you decide to decorate for spring.
Get ready for a blast from the past – 1970s style is back, and it’s better than ever. With cleverly composed ensembles by Burberry and Lanvin, this look will be on your fashion radar through the upcoming fall season.
With layered bohemian prints and fabrics, beads, texture, and a “What? These old things?” mentality, Seeing Seventies is the modern era’s take on that undeniably classic decade. If you can’t quite part with braided hair and a velvet detailed poncho, then Seeing Seventies might appeal to you.
Lots of plants (specifically cacti), mid-century inspired art, and teak side tables help create this look. Sprinkle in some funky glassware and a woven boho rug, and you’re all set for fall 2015.
Count on Lanvin and The Row to showcase an irresistibly sweet silhouette. Ladylike and full of luster, the Subtle Sophisticate trend plays up fragility and bold cuts like high-necked tops and tiered skirt lengths.
If you’re drooling at the thought of a powder pink pantsuit, you might be a Subtle Sophisticate. Your home decor fantasy probably involves a lovely loft with contemporary art displays, simple Scandinavian furniture offset by weighty sculptures and marble flooring, and plenty of powdery colors.
Don’t be afraid to up the glam factor with metals like gold and silver, and add depth with heavily textured throw pillows and area rugs. After all, there is nothing more sophisticated than a well-balanced home.
Fashion mavens are constantly on the lookout for trends to incorporate into all facets of their lives: clothes, accessories, shoes, and their homes. Feel free to mix and match these styles and blend them with your own personal twist.
