Form Follows Fashion: Interior Trends for S/S 2019

As far back as we know, fashion and interiors have been inextricably woven together. Louis Quatorze wouldn’t have been so grand running around Versaille in a basic tee and trousers, Queen Victoria in her somber apres-Albert attire echoed the dark, overt ornamentation of that era’s interiors.

If you’re a style and fashion maven, chances are your home will be just as fabulous as the clothes in your closet. When you love great design, art and beauty, that influences everything you touch.

Thus, while recently gazing upon the recent trends from the 2019 Spring and Summer collections, I was inspired to find similar items that we can transition to our interior spaces.

All fashion photos and trends reported by Elle, and you can read more about those trends here.

Trend #1: Lavender


Lavender. Hmmmm. I’ll confess this isn’t my fave color or anywhere near the top of my list. But when I started researching interior items for this project let’s just say I’m reconsidering. Not as dramatic as plum or purple, lavender has a soothing, easy quality to it. Lavender plays well with certain blues, yellow and gold, and is more unexpected than pink.

Trend #2: Fringe

I know what you’re thinking. Fringe? Yawn. It’s been around forevah in fashion and design. This time though it’s different. Trust.
This fringe is not the NashVegas cowgirl, Cochella vixen, ubiquitous Bohemian ornamentation you’ve come to see at every outlet mall. Sans patchouli, this fringe is vive la difference.
This fringe is total glamour, totally fabulous. It’s upper East-side fringe, with the price tag to prove it.
For those of you not quite ready to dump your 401K on 1stDibs, remember that these things take time to roll out to the masses at lower price points.

Trend #3: Pink and Red

Pink has a youthful exuberance while red is grown-up and sexy. It’s playful meets confident, sweet meets lady boss.
Moreover, pink and red are analogous colors on the color wheel, so it’s science that they work well together, across all design fields.

Why should our clothing have all the fun? Much like jewelry, embellishments like jewels, sparkles and pearls are the finishing touch on our interiors as well.
