Hey Riches, as some of you may know, NYFW (New York Fashion Week) just started last week. For all fashion mavens, NYFW is the time to be in New York City, twice a year for SS and FW, watching the latest in fashion walk the runway at venues sweeping through the city. Fashion Week is created by the “gods” of fashion telling you what’s on trend for the season, what’s out, what todays icon is wearing, and what you should be wearing…in our case, adorning your home with. I was once amongst the many on the scene, brushing shoulders with Richie Rich, Angel Brinks, Stevie Boi, and other designers from our time, wardrobe styling backstage, designing my custom metal wrist wear to accessorize the look models wore to walk the runway, name it, I’ve done it…I just never walked anyones runway! Our fashion icons shape what’s new and on trend, and the same fashions you see on the runway, can strut and slay (Hey Shayla!) right into your home. Home decor is heavily inspired by fashion.

From the Runway to Your Living Room
To get into some of the NYFW shows, you have to have special invitations, tickets, press pass, or you can simply tune in online. This year I tuned in online from the comfort of my home so I can know what’s hot this season for fashion which then, of course, translates into home decor. Yellows, beautiful pinks, florals, and text tees, are a few trends that are recurring, but also apart of the trends this Spring season. Below I give you some looks from the runway that can strut right into your living room.

“…Your personal style will never go out of style.”
Aside from what’s on trend, your personal style will never go out of style. Remember, you can be inspired, but can turn it into your own. I tell my clients that what you like is always en vogue, it’s just a matter of bringing it up to current, and taking things to the next level. When I’m decorating a space, I always look at it as me dressing a model for some designers runway show. The room is the model, the decor and furnishings are the garments, and the client is my audience. Though design is very personal, every detail matters from the color to the fabric, the lighting or the highlight on a models face to bring out the full look…it’s all the same.
Go to you local Home Goods or sources for the decor I added above, and see what you can find that’s on trend to add to your home. You may even already have some of SS17 in your home.
Create a space that exudes style, confidence, quality, and high value. Schedule your design consultation today!
