I started a series of posts I call Fashion & Interior Decor which I kicked off with 2012’s fall fashion trends that could easily translate to interior decor and explained how to use them to inspire you. There are so many sources to take inspiration from for your home decor and fashion is one of the BEST. Interior design and fashion are closely related because it’s all about creating a style of self-expression using color, textures, fabrics, and accessories. Looking to trends in fashion can give you some fresh ideas you may not have thought of. With spring just around the corner (March 20th, to be exact) it is time for a new round of fashion trends. Green, the proclaimed color of 2013 is incredibly versatile color that can be kept in mind while looking through these new spring trends.

BLACK AND WHITE is the most classic color combination and it’s trending in fashion this spring. Its contrast can be sophisticated, funky, feminine or masculine depending on the style of furniture and the accents that are paired with it. It pretty much goes with everything, so your creativity is the limit.

STRIPES are another classic design element that never goes out of style. They are best in small spaces or on an accent wall. They do wonders to make a low ceiling seem taller and give a space that little extra something it may be missing.

FLORALS are a lovely way to add elegance and femininity to a room, especially a bedroom. There are a multitude of patterns and colors to choose from. Depending on what you like, they can be a great focus of a room or simply an accent.

PASTELS are a true mark of spring and were all over the runway this season. They are soft, soothing colors that are beautiful choices for any space where you would like to go to feel relaxed and refreshed.
Hope you are feeling inspired!
