2018 Fashion Trends That Translate To Home Interiors

Fashion and interior design have always been related, connected by the trends that rule the season and influence consumer choices.

Gone are the days when interior spaces look like generic catalogue images that seem as if a whole boutique setup was bought and brought into the home. Today, consumers prefer to inject their personality in interior design and allow their home to reflect their personal style.

In the same way they want to dress up in the trendiest garbs of the season and incorporate those of-the-moment pieces to their tried-and-tested staples, they are likewise drawn to updating their homes with trendy elements once in a while. Homeowners take on minor makeovers that call for a few changes in furnishing, décor, and paint.

The spring/summer 2018 fashion trends go from romantic to dramatic, and the runway sightings provide a well of interior design inspirations to guide and define your home projects for the coming year.

Here are three fashion trends that could translate stylishly in your home:

 

Fringe

A fun and flirty element in clothing, fringe—whether in pillowcases, throws, rugs, table napkins, curtains, lighting fixtures, or furniture pieces—lends a playful vibe to a space. The key to keeping a space’s look classy despite this accent’s bohemian feel is by using a fringed piece sparingly; a little can go a long way.

An array of bold colors—from bright yellow to emerald green to tomato red—took over the spring/summer 2018 runways. This brightness and vibrance carries over to interior spaces through pops of bold color on statement items or accents. With Pantone declaring Ultra Violet as the Color of the Year and Benjamin Moore paint company naming Caliente (a striking red shade) as 2018’s color du jour, it seems homes are totally in the mood for brights this season.

 Spring/summer is never complete without florals. For next year, soft, micro, and 60s type of florals are among the trends. For interior décor, floral prints with high contrasts and oversized blooms are the ones expected to be big in 2018. To update your space, go for a floral wallpaper, upholstered chairs, or accents.
