Happy Monday all! I am so excited to share my first ever guest post from my friend, Sarah Stacey, an Austin,Texas based interior designer. She is here today to share her insight on some up and coming trends in fashion and interiors. Enjoy!!
It is true that trends in interior design often come from trends in fashion. A trend I am seeing more and more on the runways is punk, and I am seeing it peek it's way through in interiors as well. This could be especially fun in rooms for teens and tweens.
Versace's Fall 2013 collection is very punk- with all of the plaid, shiny spiked metal studs and patent leather. Also, the spring 2013 exhibition organized by The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art PUNK: Chaos to Couture. This will be on view from May 9 through August 14, 2013, so if you happen to be in New York during this time, check it out- it should be a pretty fun exhibition. Even Harpers Bazaar lists punk style as one of the 13 Fashion and Style Trends of 2013.
In interiors, I'm seeing it come through in small ways, like in the photo below. See the plaid ottoman, the black horn magnifying glass and the silver tray? That is punk.
The style of this fabric by Richard Saja of Historically Inaccurate is obviously punk...the pastel mohawk actually glows in the dark! This fabric isn't new, but it is pretty amazing, so I had to share it with you.
Here is a fabric combination I've put together that is very punk as well. It reminds me of a Betsey Johnson skirt I owned in college. I'm seeing this in an edgy teenager's room. The floral and houndstooth are both Designers Guild, the plaid wool is Ralph Lauren.
