You know the saying: what goes around comes around. In the interior design world, trends come and go, but every time the pendulum swings back, the look is a little different. When it comes to fabrics for interiors, a lot of designers base their choices on looks they see from the runway, so the trends trickle down about a year later. Last year, chevron and ikat had a moment, and then we started seeing more ethnic prints and watercolors, and then bold florals. What’s next? We decided to look at what was hot at New York Fashion Week’s Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 collections and make some predictions of what fabrics our clients will be coveting in 2015!
Although I have been eagerly awaiting this cooler weather, Mara Houffman’s Spring 2015 collection makes me appreciate summer. It’s filled with exciting patterns and a kaleidoscope of colors.
This dress (upper right), in particular, is one of my favorites. It made me think of this Beacon Hill silk (Fugi in Neptune, left). It may not be a literal parallel, but the deep blue and orange along with the movement of the waves reminds me of this hilly Japanese-inspired scene.
I love the mixture of texture and print Isabel Marant collected for her Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear collection I can’t wait to get my hands on some of those dresses for spring! In the meantime, I put together this fun collection of patterns from our own Spruce library to help you achieve that same Isabel Marant vibe in whatever room you choose!
What caught my eye was all of the gingham coming down the runway. Gingham is so preppy and classic, I’m glad it’s making a comeback for Spring 2015. Designers such as Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta and Diane von Furstenberg were all about using it in a bold way. We have plenty of the checked stuff in the shop, but one of the most classic prints is Elton Cotton Check by Schumacher.
I love the delicately textured floral and palm dresses from the Erdem Spring 2015 collection–which are similar to the Manuel Canovas’ Bahamas (bottom right) and Christian Lacroix (bottom left) floral fabrics we carry in the shop.
Take a look the ottoman we completed recently in a similar print.
