The Gold Connection... links and accents..
Dipped gold accents...
Gold from Chanel influences...
This weekend, the interior design industry will kick-off its "fashion week" of sorts: a bi-yearly event at High Point, North Carolina, where the focus this Fall will be on Spring Fashion & Decor. A group of select designers and design bloggers have been chosen to be "Style Spotters", where they will be tweeting, posting and pinning from the event about the styles and trends they see featured at the High Point Market. Although I'm unable to attend the market this year, I'm honored to be included in this month's blog link up with Olioboard and nine other design bloggers discussing fashion & decor. We all will be linking up today to share our version of "Fashion & Decor"... be it for a season, a holiday, a gender, or a trend. I pulled together some fashion and decor trends I think the style spotters will be seeing at High Point, and we'll be seeing for Spring 2013...
SPRING COLOR EXPLOSION!
This Spring will feature a color explosion, from patchwork to plaids and florals to stripes! For his Spring Collection, designer Thom Browne featured a madness for plaidness!
Wake up those stripes you may already have by pairing them with florals: from shoes & handbags, to sofas & pillows, or chairs to tablescapes...
By no means are these all the trends we'll be seeing! And still to come will be the release of the color of the year from Pantone. This year it was Tangerine Tango - I wonder what it will be next year? From what I have been seeing pinned in fashion, I'm leaning towards the happy and optimistic yellow... but shades of jade have also been being pinned...
Rain or shine - This Spring's forecast seems to be on the sunny side!
White usually makes a strong appearance after winter, and I've been seeing more black & white patterns. Some feminine details, like bows and lace are also sure to be making their way from the runway to our rooms in one way or another...
The delicate lacy detail of a dress can be translated into a durable Marrakesh tile design or a sparkling chandelier...
Besides retailers, showrooms and industries merging fashion and decor, there are collections or displays we can already do in our own home style: we can display jewelry on trays, boxes, hooks, or on forms. Even a pashmina, a wrap, or a pretty printed scarf can be used as a table runner or bed scarf. Sometimes your husbands dress-shirt can have the perfect shade of blue, or maybe you've fallen in love with a dress print and color combo, and now you want to do it in your living room. Fashion & Decor is merging all around us. What are some ways you merge your fashion with your decor?
