catwalk to couch, how your wardrobe can influence your home

Updated: Oct 21, 2020

Being 'on trend' is cool, right? But do we still want to be seen as fashionable in our homes?


I find trends really fascinating, it comes down to people wanting to belong, to be part of the club! It's also a big push for retailers to try and sell us more things we didn't know we needed....


Historically fashion trends have always influenced interiors, usually by a few seasons ahead. So, I thought I'd share this season AW20 with a few key looks on the catwalk, according to Vogue, and provide you with some inspiration from the catwalk for your home.

FASHION: BALLOON SLEEVES

We're already seeing this fashion trend for soft and enveloping shapes which are cosy and comfortable, but also make a statement.

INTERIORS: WHAT TO LOOK FOR

Furniture emerging in the form of warm neutrals, clean but soft curved lines, in sofas and chairs. The ultimate in comfy squidgy designs perfect for putting your feet up.

FASHION: CARDIGAN AFFAIR

A contemporary take on granny chic, cardigans with useful pockets, they're practical, add layers and interest, a staple we might have overlooked?

INTERIORS: WHAT TO LOOK FOR

For the equivalent in your home, look out for the humble pleated lampshade. It adds a little detail with delicate pattern, it's a quick update to any lamp base and your granny would approve.
