Did y’all catch the Golden Globes last Sunday? Apart from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s hilarious one-liners, J.Lawr’s incredibly endearing acceptance speech, and Robert Downey Jr.’s sexy arrogant appeal, I’d say this year was a total BUST in terms of entertainment shock value. At least the stars still came correct in fashion forward style truly indicative of what’s on my radar for both interior design and home decor this spring.
Colorblocking: Color blocking is not new to any fashionista’s vocabulary yet when designed with like-minded colors can send this tried-and-true trend into a tailspin. Rich, elegant tones of similar hues have a soothing effect on the eyes even when using bold and saturated shades. Keep accessories to a minimum since the color is clearly the star.
Graphic Black and White: Escape to modernism with simple silhouettes and strategic contrasting. I love how these designs keep the shapes streamlined while allowing graphic elements to steal the show. An embellishment here, a cutout there makes a statement with minimal color and one major detail.
Primary Colors: Nothing stands out in a sea of black and white like a spectrum of vibrant color. Here, sun-soaked shades of turquoise, coral, and citrus call to mind winters spent vacationing in the tropics while most of the world is still freezing their bums off in the cold. I love how color can have such a transformative quality allowing viewers to be instantly swept into another world. Blues call to mind the calming sea, reds fiery disposition dares for an adventure, while yellows simply mellow in a cheerful, chirpy way. Whatever your mindset, make like these starlets and immerse yourself in a world of color.
Art Deco: Last Fall’s art deco trend is still going strong for the upcoming spring season. Designs with glitzy elements of sparkling metallic zig zags call to mind old Hollywood glamour of the Gatsby era. Repetition of geometric diamonds and chevrons are key features of this trend so don’t skimp on the decorations here. A completely maximalist approach to design and decorating for all you David Hicks fans out there! Present company included :D
