Fashion & Interior Design: Who is influencing whom?

Do fashion trends seep into interior design, or is design the inspiration to your wardrobe? And does social media have an impact?

The answer to all of these questions is: yes! 

  • ​Fashion and design trends are evolving simultaneously.
    Fresh​ome​ agrees with us, too. They wrote an article explaining that lagging trends between the runway and design studios are a way of the past. In fact, the two industries appear to be colliding.

  • Designers are inspired and inspiring on social media.
    Designers are going to blogs and sites like Pinterest for inspiration and to watch the influence of colors and styles take shape. 

  • Consumers are craving the creative elements seen on social media.
    Consumers are growing a stronger desire to decorate their home with the bold and beautiful colors they are seeing in skirts, scarves and purses. This is reflected in their décor tastes, Pinterest pins and clothing selections.
