As we study the runway at some of the worlds most prestigious fashion shows this spring we start to see styles and trends suitable for the home… and I’m not talking about in your wardrobe.
These 6 runway trends from Harpers Bazaar Spring 2014 Report from designers such as Stella McCartney, Oscar De La Renta and Marc Jacobs (just to name a few) will make your home a fashion designers dream space.
All White is not for the faint hearted
This crisp, white collared look captured by fashion designer Valentino brings a professional touch to anyone’s wardrobe; if you love the look of all white it can be a look you would want in your home it doesn’t have to come across as a professional finish. Opt for white furniture and throw subtle colours of décor like flowers, a vase or rug if you want the look but are skeptical about going the full way.
Layer the sparkly things
Marc Jacobs internationally known designer has brought to the runway a combination of sequins and crystal, as if these two elements weren’t enough separate, he’s brought the idea of a layered effect with the two that looks astronomical. The idea of combining sequins and crystal may be best used in cushions and home décor items. Pair a beautiful crystal lamp or chandelier with sequin cushions.
Floral décor would be the most popular design in the home, thank you Alberta Ferretti for bringing the floral back in a more modern way, Harpers Bazaar have described taking this new floral approach in an artsy, painterly way, make it classy and choose a pattern that won’t date.
When I think of fringe I immediately associate it with the 70’s, but fashion always makes a comeback and there’s ways to create a 70’s vibe in your home and still put a modern twist on it. Fashion Designer Emilio Pucci sees Moroccan throws and confetti affect designs meshed together with the fringe.
Colour that will make you blush
It really wouldn’t be spring inspired if it didn’t include pastel and bright shades. We’re looking at icy shades and blush colors being incorporated into the home. I love popping furniture more than little accents on bright colour, that way your beautiful pink curtains will be the feature of the room instead of dispersing more than one pastel shade around the room.

Something that was meant to be used as home décor is finding itself on the runway, so if you’ve already incorporated that pop art on your wall, you’re one step ahead of Chanel. Visually pleasing colours in your home, according to artist and blogger DeAnne Williamson “breathes oxygen into your room… comforts you, it warms you… it makes a house a home.” Be careful not to go over the top with colour, your home could look like Google Headquarters.
