Translating 2015’s Catwalk Trends Into Your Home Design

If you’re looking to bring about a fresh new look in your home in 2015, then inspiration should come from all kinds of places. Rather than just following the latest trends why not look to other areas of design to inspire your home?

One place in particular that is always worth taking a look, is the fashion industry. While it may not sound like the most obvious choice of inspiration, you may be surprised at the ways in which you can translate designs from the latest catwalk collections into the home. With this in mind, here we take a look at what we have already seen from the catwalks for 2015 and look at the ways you can borrow influence for your home.


If what the catwalks are telling us is correct, boho is back for summer 2015. With a look that is straight out of 1970’s Marrakesh, long flowing dresses, a multitude of colours, lace and pleats are all design elements that have already featured on the catwalks courtesy of Alberta Ferretti, Etro and Chloé.

Translate this into the home by using floaty materials as throws for chairs, reclaimed wooden cabinets and an eclectic display of picture frames, cushions and ornaments.

Vintage fabrics

Vintage fabrics are another design trend that are being seen across the catwalks. Utilising eclectic flair, Dries Van Noten, Maison Martin Margiela and Prada are all mixing contrasting and unexpected combinations of prints and textures in some of their latest designs for spring/summer 2015.

Such designs can be translated into the home by adding a wealth of colour and texture into your furnishings and accessories. Perhaps think about the most obscure colours and textures you can utilise and look at how these can contrast and complement one another.  Add further detail into your interior design by complimenting these fabrics with details such as beehive doorknobs (image below) and teak wooden furniture.

Though it has never really gone away, denim is back, albeit in more of a luxury patchwork form. Reinvented in faded blues and a range of textured effects, denim has been seen on the catwalks in the form of a carefully-constructed Gucci dress and in the reinvention of the iconic Burberry trench. This luxurious denim look makes for the perfect influence on your home.

Perhaps consider utilising denim as a way of accenting your accessories against the rest of your furnishings. Items such as cushions and rugs make for the perfect way to add some stylish denim into your interior design. Compliment such features with items that classically work together, for instance denim cushions against a leather sofa.

Japanese Influence

Many fashion houses seem to be taking influence from Japan for 2015, with kimonos featured within the 2015 collections of Marni, Gucci and Céline. With features that include delicate floral designs, sleek black silhouettes and oversized belts, these kimonos make great influence for your home.

Utilise this influence in your home with clean, minimalist and uncluttered style, delicate floral fabrics and cream and black colour schemes. Accessories to compliment this could include paper fans, shoji screens and bamboo furniture.
