Fab Friday: Translating S/S14 NYFW Trends into Interior Design

Hello Fabulistas! There are few events in New York as fabulous as Fashion Week. The Fall/Winter 2014 shows wrapped yesterday and I’m already thinking about how I can use the trends in my design projects. Here are my three favorite trends I saw in some of my favorite designers’ collections.

Textured pale neutrals

One thing that always makes a look more interesting is texture blocking. In this Ralph Lauren RTW ensemble, the feathers, beaded dress and suede boots keep the eye moving. It might be overwhelming if it weren’t all in a neutral palette. It would almost seem edgy, but the colors keep it elegant.

There are so many textures visible in this room! The casings, crown molding, art and mantel are all quite different. However, the similar tones make the looks cohesive. Like the Ralph Lauren look above, this room is full of unique styles that flow together nicely.

Graphic black accent stripes

There’s quite a bit going on in this Proenza Schouler runway look, but my eye is drawn to the coat’s black zippers against the white fabric. It’s such a bold, structured statement with just a bit of an accent.

The black lines on the ceiling and light fixture draw your eye first, even though it’s the most neutral part of the room. Neutrals don’t always have to fall in to the background! Sometimes they’re the most interesting part of a design look.

Eclectic elegance

All too often we see something that is stunning, yet simple, and call it elegant. Pieces from different styles can work together in elegance. This look from Christian Siriano’s fashion show just goes to show it. It combines many materials and elements within a black and white scheme for a chic, stunning look.

This apartment contains various styles and elements in a very small footprint. Yet, the similar tones mean that it all comes together beautifully. Besides, the true test of styling is putting things together in surprising, harmonious combinations.
