When Interior Design Meets Fashion: Color Blocking

When Interior Design Meets Fashion:Color Blocking

When Interior Design meets Fashion covers Color Blocking today, a similarity we have seen on different occasion this year since the Salone del Mobile. Social Media may be a force for fast developments among those two disciplines, and certainly interior design is getting more relevance since instagramers use their platform to show their homes on a regular basis.

Strong, clean, extravagant, this is all about solid color blocking. The eye catcher and main driver are both color and the design itself which adds on with extravagant shapes. It’s an attention drawing statement, full of vitality, though we have decided to go for a less bold color scheme with bi or multi color combos matching the Autumn/Winter 2018/19 vibes (for more inspiration in fashion, checkout the Resort 2018 collections) .

Construct, and de-construct are current looks, a recurring theme in the fashion industry. Shapes are architectural, often grown out of their structure featuring stripes, triangles, squares, and circles.

Head to toe color is the way to go in fashion from color to pattern, whereas one statement piece is often enough in interior design environments.

Everything comes back, often reloaded, but geometric patterns always seem to come in and out of the fashion forefront. Color blocks are strategically placed to create a natural puzzle of angles that form a variety of shapes to create depth, interest and a new perspective after years of calm and serene minimalism. It’s a good moment to move towards bolder expressions!
