Imitate: From The Runway To Your Home

By Catarina Wilk

When fashion trends meet interior design…that’s how one could start a never ending love story.
Without any doubt, the fashion industry is a powerful and inspiring world which spreads its creative vibes across many different fields such as art, music, literature and last but not least architecture including interior design. Speaking of this, many of today’s interior designers draw their inspiration from the world’s runway shows and imitate prints, patterns and colours first seen on the world’s catwalks. One could almost say that fashion trends make their way to your home. So without further ado, style up your home!

From clothes and hair styling moving on to interior design including wall painting and furniture, the ombré trend is still going strong and is here to stay forever.
The gradual blending of one color hue to another by usually moving tints from light to dark is what ombré makes so unique and popular. It is subtle, but makes a real statement at the same time and adds a hint of colour to your interior furnishings!

Furniture designer and sofa specialist Arlo & Jacob, the German textile designer JAB Anstoetz and Samuel & Sons, well-known for their fine-quality tassels, borders, braids, gimp and fringes,have taken the ombré trend from fashion into interiors.

Prints and especially black and white graphics are always on trend. This trend impresses with its minimalistic design and Helsinki-based interior stylist Susanna Vento shows that interior does not always have to be garish or extremely colourful.
