Bridging the gap between fashion and interiors
More and more designers are choosing to translate their styles over a number of mediums. This comes as great news to the fashionista that wishes to adorn their household in a similar style to that of their wardrobe.
Big name designer brands are now collaborating with giant hotel chains and interior hubs, so as well as adorning your torso in Missoni, you can now stay in a Missoni-enthused hotel – just as you can drape your sofa in a Philippe Starck cashmere throw. It seems that one works in perfect harmony with the other.

Collaborations worth taking note of
Asides from hotels and throws, a number of designers are also lending their expertise to the beauty world. From Jenny Packham cosmetic clutches for Lancôme to the RiRi inspired M.A.C exclusive colour collection, beauty products are becoming a work of art and a way in which to imitate the style of many a global superstar.
A shade above the rest
This season’s beauty trends have been showcasing softer hues in the shape of rose pinks and berry shades. This minimal look can also be translated into the interior design world, where alternative hues can immediately update any room. You can add an instant edge to any room by translating just a few of the top 2014 trends to your home. An unexpected splash of pink in the shape of a chair, a throw, a few vibrant cushions or a photo frame is an easy way to brighten up an otherwise simple space. Sweet powdery pastels, including both lavender and pistachio, are not only proving to be on-trend make-up and nail colours, but they’re also proving to be ideal for those that wish to add a feminine touch to their interior style.

A graphic edge
Just as models have been sashaying down the runways in cut-out, black and white dresses, spring fashions for the home boast bold, geometric shapes and black and white hues.
Trend alert: Offbeat plaids
Another trend to take to the catwalk is a modernised version of tartan, which comes in the shape of offbeat plaids. This cosy yet modern style looks just as good in the home as it does on the runway. A number of interior designers have used this exact style to add warmth to an otherwise blank canvas. From white sofas adorned with plaid scatter cushions to wooden floors warmed with plaid rugs, the options are endless.
