From runway to living room

From fabrics to colours to patterns, trends seen on the runways of Paris and Milan can often be seen in the pages of interior design magazines at the same time. Whether it’s a shared love of Pantone’s colour of the year or inspiration from the set of Mad Men, the two worlds always seem to overlap, which means double the inspiration and ideas for decorating projects.

Strike a pose in your own home with these seven trend pairings of fashion and home decor.

Bold and bright
When it comes to vibrant colours, a full-on look can be too much of a good thing. Use pops of bright hues against a neutral colour palette for a chic and edited effect, like this BCBG Max Azria look and the juxtaposed living room. runway-decor-blocked.jpg
Colour block
An icon of the ‘60s era, colourblocked dresses like this one by Alice + Olivia ooze a cool retro style. Bring the look into your own space by colourblocking your walls to define a living space or to simply to create a feature wall. runway-decor-graphics.jpg
Graphic love
The fashion world is known for taking risks and not playing it safe, and the love of pattern and bold graphics has long been in the forefront. This mixture of patterns from Holly Fulton can easily be replicated in your own home with punchy wallpaper like the one above. If you’re hesitant about committing to such a bold look, try it on a small space like an accent wall. runway-decor-mod.jpg
All-the-way mod
Mid-century modern has been all the rage in both fashion and interior design for the past couple of years and it shows no sign of stopping. This sleek Jil Sander look has a super mid-century style, also reflected in this living space with the turquoise hues and retro shapes. runway-decor-pastels.jpg
Pretty pastels
The addition of a pastel immediately brings an air of femininity to any runway or room. Grab inspiration from this Elie Saab stunner to create the pastel perfect boudoir or dining room. runway-decor-stripes.jpg
Serious stripes
One of design’s most timeless patterns, stripes have been seen time and time again on the runway and in our homes. Though horizontal stripes are most popular, take some inspiration from this Jil Sander dress and opt for vertical stripes like those on the settee above. runway-decor-whites.jpg
All-white
There’s no look more clean, crisp and classic than an all-white room palette and Diane von Furstenberg takes ‘timeless’ to the next level with this pretty piece from her latest resortwear collection. Mix shades of white and textures in your home to create a serene look that will stand the test of time.
