Summer 2017 it is going to be as vibrant and hot as the sun! Trends that start on the runway don’t necessarily end there. They have a wave-like ripple effect throughout every area in the design industry, including homewares. If bold tribal-inspired, geometrics or tropical rainforest prints are trending in fashion for example, you can almost be sure the design industry will feature them in home furnishings such as cushions, quilt covers and wallpapers.
It has been said that people who have been in a relationship long enough start to look and dress like each other. The way I see it, the relationship between runway fashion and homewares trends is no different to this. I know for my myself when I open my wardrobe doors I am faced with a hanging rainbow of colour, and particuarly the colours that are part of my home including lots of blues, greens, aquas, pinks and orange. Does your wardrobe reflect your homewares collection? I would love to know!
