Let's divert our troubles by looking at something pretty shall we? Trends for home interiors always tend to follow what is hot and new from the fashion world. We took a look at the latest runway shows from around the globe, and here are some of our favorite trends we think can easily transition over to home decor!
I know, some of you might be shaking your head right now, but fringe is back baby! Long, short, thin, thick - we saw it in all shapes and sizes on the runway. Even on accessories like shoes and purses. Believe it or not, there are lots of ways to incorporate fringe in your home decor. I love adding a fringe trim to a sofa or chair as an unexpected detail, but here are a few other suggestions to try!
Never Fear the Sheer!
Sheers have always been on trend in our book! They offer a great way to use bold colors in a room - yet be opaque enough that it doesn't over-power the space. They are also a great layering tool for draperies and canopy beds! Their ability to diffuse light while providing some sense of privacy, and the additional layer of softness they add to a space are just a few of the reasons we tend to use sheers whenever we can in a project. Beyond the obvious drapery application - I am seeing lots of different sheer/gauzy blankets, and as overlays on decorative throw pillows.
I for one am always a sucker for a sophisticated animal print and textural fabrics, so obviously I am totally here for this trend! Lots of fashion designers were seen this season incorporating Safari themed prints and natural fibers and fabric elements into their runway looks. You can incorporate this trend into your home with rattan furniture pieces, lighting fixtures, or other decor items that add an organic feel to your space.
Floral & Tropical Prints - OH MY!
While I might not be too pleased with the current social status of 2020, the trends are really ticking all the boxes for me. Florals are for sure a favorite at our studio! You really can't go wrong with application, and don't underestimate the power of a FRESH floral arrangement for your space (See THIS blog post for some floral arranging tips)!
Last, But Not Least - COLOR TRENDS!!
The color story being told for 2020 is way more exciting than real life right about now, and I think we could all use a bit more color in our lives these days! Here are some of our favorite trends from the runways across world, and don't worry - we skipped all the boring neutral palettes for now. Drastic times call for BOLD colors! We always suggest adding trendy colors with accessories and items that are easily changed with incoming new trends. For example: throws and throw pillows, bedding, and decorative items / chachkies, etc.

I really could go on because color is my jam, but hopefully this little rant helped take your mind off some of the craziness going on around us. Just because we have to stay at home, doesn't mean it can't be fun and fashionable! Be sure to share your home upgrades with us!
