A “Fashionable” Home

Design Trends

As the world of fashion design and interior design often mirror each other, I took a look at the latest apparel ideas coming out of “Fashion Week” and put together some trends to watch.

Trend #1: Leather.  Yes, it’s coming back in apparel and it’s really never left “fashionable” homes.  From shagreen (sharkskin) to buttery soft leathers, and even leather floors, it’s a true classic that gets tweaked from season to season.

Leather apparel is back!

Trend #2:  Transparency and Lace.  I’m seeing a lot of lacy apparel, and some fabulous fabrics for your home that give you a lacy feel without feeling like you’ve put up grandmas curtains.

Trend #3: Textures that are bold and bulky.  Like a great cable-knit sweater!

Wouldn't this make a great chair? Kravet 30207


Trend # 4: Prints:  Hi-tech and urban prints.  Definitely not the “Laura Ashley” look!

Love it, and the colors! Kravet citysquare

What’s your favorite from “Fashion Week”?  I’m loving that leather apparel is back, although I don’t think I’ll be hunting for leather pants any time soon!
