3 Interior Design Trends That Will Inspire Your Summer Closet, So Bring On The Pastels
Do you ever get a little tired of the fashion merry go round; where the seasons can be almost as predictable as an old school Disney movie ending? Don't worry, we can take fresh inspiration in the form of interior design inspired fashion. Although the fashion industry holds some incredibly creative minds and there are always new fashions being invented, there are some trends that are always being regurgitated year upon year. For instance, summer wouldn't be summer without a nautical tee or a '70s dress, the fall usually brings a touch of '40s luxe, and velvet and tartan garments are always fashion favorites in the winter.
So why not look a little closer to home for your summer style inspiration? By that I mean why not pull together the hottest interior design trends and transform them into wearable looks? The fashion industry is always inspiring interior design trends. Interior designer Daun Curry told Elle Decor, "I've found there are clues in everyone's wardrobe that can help define their own personal decorating styles."
IMO, the opposite can also be true. Look to your home and dissect your personal decorating choices and pick apart what you like about the design. If you're not in your dream home just yet you can search through interior design magazines or websites to find styles that you like. This is a great "two birds with one stone" activity if you're thinking about redecorating anytime soon. Discover how your wardrobe can be inspired by your favorite interior trends with this look at the most fashionable interior design trends of spring/summer 2015.
1. Flashes Of Green In A Monochrome Palette
