5 Fashion-Inspired Home Trends You Need to Know in 2015
Even after the champagne bubbles have popped, the new year brings a freshness to your everyday life and what better way to reinvent it than infusing your home with the best trends of this year? Home and fashion cross paths in more ways than one, not to mention, we're just obsessed with both, so we let five spring trends from the runway inspire the home trends to try in 2015.
Denim was a major hit on the spring 2015 runway and we especially loved the ease at Chloe -- this is not your typical Canadian Tuxedo! From models to model homes, the classic Americana fabric is the perfect covering for seating and decor that's relaxed, easy-wearing and just plain comfortable. We suggest using it on structured pieces (hello mid-century furniture!) to balance out it's laid-back appeal.

Both home and clothing are taking a subtle turn come spring. How? Pale pink, coral and salmon hues are reigning with whisper strength that can't be ignored. Try layering different shades of blush for a monochromatic look that's beyond delightful to live in: Look how incredibly inviting this room is! You can keep it classic with scalloped bedding or go modern with ceramic pieces or even a pink and copper swivel chair that is bold and dreamy (seriously, how perfect is this chair?!).
Ok, all white is not groundbreaking but we're loving the structured-slash-glam-y take on incorporating it into your home. Gone are the plush white shabby chic couches, which are being replaced with structured decor pieces and gold accents. This gilded addition adds warmth and a more refined, ladylike touch. Of course, you can mix your metals, but try out some pieces that add an Art Deco element to your home -- you might just find it suits you.

En Safari Taking a more laid-back approach to decor is the military-inspired look. New recruits marched down the runway in army green and flaxen hues but these colors and fabrics can easily leave the barracks and come home with you. We love the simplicity and tough vibe -- just think how it'll be able to withstand kids and pets. The easiest take on military safari are overstuffed pillows, army blankets and leather-clad everything (can't you just imagine Ernest Hemingway and Martha Gelhorn reading in this chair after a long day of traveling?).
Last year, macramé started making a comeback but it's hanging around with major staying power. Between the retro colors, prints and cuts on the runway and at home, you can quickly transform your boring pad into a Laurel Canyon hideaway. Kilim rugs, wall hangings and layers of complementary fabrics in far-out prints will bring warmth and a lived-in vibe to your home. We also suggest having some plant life to complete the look.
