Fall/Winter 2013: Fashion Trends To Inspire Home Decor

It’s time for another Fashion/Interior Decor post. Fall/winter runways have had some really inspiring trends this year. So many of them can easily be translated into home decor to produce beautiful results. I’ve chosen the 6 most popular, but if you are looking for some inspiration for your home outside of the norm, try searching through the hundreds of runway photos on fashion sites to give you a new perspective and ideas on design. Fashion designers are always trying to think of the next big thing, so you may spot a great idea for home decor in their archives before anyone else catches on.

To get you started, here are 6 of the most popular fashion trends from the fall/winter runways with correlating home designs.

TARTAN PLAID has made a comeback on the runway this season and is a perfect pattern for holiday decor. It gives a nice classic punch to a table setting, stockings, pillows, or even a side chair.

PLEATS have been ruffling up the runway with their whimsical flair. The pleated look goes great with chairs. You can find many pleated slipcovers to give your dining room chairs, sofa, or arm chair a fresh look.

ACADEMIC looks are in style with classic patterns such as tweed and pinstripes. The style is very tailored and clean, as seen in this tweed bed.

WINTER WHITE is a sophisticated staple for the season. There are myriad ways to incorporate this into your home, as white goes with just about anything. Even a faux fur throw or pillow is a nice touch.

LEATHER is a recurring trend this year. It’s a timeless material that looks great throughout a home. It shines on both larger pieces and smaller accents, such as an ottoman or bar stools.

GRAY continues to find popularity with its subdued, classic appeal. This color is a great contemporary choice for walls and a soothing palette for any room, especially a bedroom.

Has fashion ever inspired anything in your home?
