Styling an outfit requires accessories that has the potential to tie everything together. It is the most challenging thing about creating a pristine look. The same challenge comes when you are decorating. You need a unique piece that anchors a room but also some special decoration items that make your living space personal. Fashion and home Decor are similar in many ways. They both constitute expression of self. We express ourselves in fashion, same goes for Interior decoration. Both reveal a lot about who we are too. Whether it is with a dress or a table, a necklace or a sofa, our love of certain colours we wear and prints we decorate our homes with are hallmarks of our style. Ever contemplate that? Take a look at the clothes in your wardrobe. Think about how your home is decorated. Is there a resemblance? It should. Because if you love prints or a specific colour, you shouldn’t be just wearing them. They should be part of your house as well. It’s a simple way to lift your mood, and to make you feel good each day.
Here’s two pictures to illustrate this close relationship. First photo is of me and the second one is of my living room. Do you see the link?

The home I share with my hubby and my two kids is filled with a mix of eclectic vintage furnitures, texture rugs, pillows, wallpaper, floral and botanical artworks, and soft-hued walls with drop of colours here and there. These patterns, shapes, colours and textures are the ultimate backdrop for my wardrobe. Both my wardrobe and home decor influence one another and the vibe reflects who I am. In my case, It’s all about blending patterns and colours without predetermined rules, but yet always with comfort and timeless elegance in mind. So it’s not much of a surprise that I like to wear vintage clothes with modern accessories. But that doesn’t mean my contemporary pieces get lost into the mix. Especially those floral embellished Stuart Weitzman booties I paired with, well, pretty much everything… And Yes, they match with my living room. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying you have to wear floral pattern just because your wallpaper has flowers, but you sure can get inspiration from it and create a look that reminds you of the beloved item.
From Runway through Interior Design
Fashion and Interior decor have often been curious bedfellows. I believe the true mesh happened when famous fashion designers in the likes of Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Calvin Klein and Tory Burch started expanding their fashion talent into more than dressing fashion models. It’s now your living room! That’s right many of your well-known fashion designers have now ventured into interior design often bringing some of that back into their own fashion lines. The link between fashion and home decor is blurry indeed.
A perfect example of this was in the top spring fashion trends of 2015. This is where fashion truly blended with home decor, and probably vice versa. With the social media, the world of fashion and decor keep merging together because the style trends are readily accessible. Everyone is seeing the same things at the same time.
Coral is a popular color this year? You will find this color seeping into the latest home interior decor too from pillows to wall hangings. Fashion and interior design are nowadays closely linked in the way that each inspires the other in each others work.
I have compiled some images from Designer’s collection and matched them with home decor to show you the threads that link both worlds. Enjoy!

So what’s trending for 2019?
From my fashion crystal ball (Read: the Fashion Week runways and photos), I would say: animal patterns, especially zebra and leopard, herringbone, houndstooth and geometric prints, coral, Jade and dark teal, yellow and gold touch, floral…
Wishing you a happy 2019 filled with peace, health and joy. And lots of love, too!
