Interior design and fashion are never far from each other and the most recent New York Fashion Week was proof.  While watching the runway shows, we spotted a few fashion trends that could translate into beautiful and modern styles for our clients’ homes.  From patchwork to shades of citrus, here our top three themes from New York Fashion Week that could go from runway to hallway.

West Coast

Relaxed, colorful, and comfortable are mottos of living on America’s West Coast.  It was refreshing to see big name designers like Diane von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilifiger, and Tory Burch bringing an infusion of bright prints and soft fabrics at New York Fashion Week.  These types of beachwear colors, textures, and patchwork can be incorporated into a home when balanced within the larger design theme.

Orange and Citrus

Designers Baja East, Rag & Bone, and Ralph Lauren brought the bold to the runway with the use of orange and citrus hues. These bright shades bring an immediate pop of color into a room when used as an accent color and are powerful enough to direct the focus of a space when used in bigger areas.  A few of my favorite colors to pair with citrus shades are navy blue, peach, and yellow.

Nautical Stripes and Details

While nautical influences aren’t rare in fashion, this year’s runway showcased the less conventional multicolored tones of nautical stripes.  These lively color combinations were grounded with classic details such as toggles and rope textures.  Lightweight fabrics such as linens, crochets, and silks were also used to complete the seafaring motif of these looks.  Nautical inspired interior pieces don’t have to be heavy-handed anchors or model sailboats but can be as elegant as the sea-inspired fabrics of Marimekko.  In fact, we’re incorporating these Marimekko prints into the interiors of our client’s Nantucket project.
