Fashion and interior design have always been closely related. It’s no coincidence that the patterns on our clothes often match the decor of our homes. Yet sometimes it can be difficult to keep ahead of changing tastes. Keep reading to find out how you can use the latest fashion trends to help spruce up your home.
Floral patterns are trending this summer. The colorful prints look cheerful but aren’t too bright. In fact, they look sophisticated and chic. So, while you might feel that floral patterns are only for the bedroom or living room, looking at this fashion trend from a different perspective can inspire some fun ideas!
Choose a soft floral pattern for the walls of your home to give it the quintessential touch of spring. You could also try adding flowery cushions or artwork to the mix for a cozier vibe.
Mustard yellow is coming back into fashion this season. It’s a bold color that works best when combined with other strong shades, such as red. Pair it with fuchsia pink for an interesting contrast, or go for a monochrome look by painting the walls of your home in this color.
Another way to add some mustard yellow to your home is by completely painting the wall in one room. Or just pick an accent pillow or two for pops of style throughout the house.
This vibrant print is a great choice if you want to create a fun, casual vibe in your home. Plus, it’s taking over the fashion world, so your house will be right on-trend. In addition, the optical pattern creates an illusion that makes the room seem larger and more spacious.
Wallpaper a small section of wall in a checkerboard pattern to draw attention to it without making it the focus of the room. Sometimes, chic wallpaper like this can cost a small fortune. Still, think of it as a long-term investment! There are lots of payment options out there. Using loans for home improvement or for a remodeling project could make your dreams a reality. Alternatively, try painting a wall in this style or invest in a few patterned pillows or lampshades to bring the trend into your home.
Pastels are a popular choice for creating a calm and cozy feeling. The soft shades make the room seem more refined.
Paint your living room walls in a pale shade of blue or pink and add some brightly colored cushions for a fresh touch. You can also try accessories such as candlesticks or vases to temper the crisp design that pastels allow.
Animal print brims with exotic appeal. Whether you choose to go for leopard print or zebra stripes, animal prints will add some serious drama to your home.
The best way to integrate the trend into your decor is by investing in high-quality accessories that can be mixed and matched throughout your house. Try layering them over existing pieces of furniture or use animal print accessories to add some flair to more neutral décor.
If that sounds like a big undertaking for you, why not try one bold accessory? A leopard throw pillow looks chic and can be easily moved around if it doesn’t quite fit with the rest of your room’s look.
