Ways to incorporate this season’s trendiest fashion into your home
During fashion weeks the streets are flooded with bold colours, crazy prints, and sky-high heels. New trends burst on to the scene as you suddenly discover that the way you dressed in high-school is cool again, that you can wear pajamas to work, and that workout clothes aren’t just for your morning run. New trends of course mean a new wardrobe (you don’t have to tell us twice!), but fashion doesn’t just affect our closets, it also carries over into our interiors.
StudioOnline and th2Designs are bringing fashion to the forefront with their latest trends in interior design. th2Designs is a spinoff of Taylor Howes Designs, which offers affordable, stylish furnishings that can be delivered to your doorstep in an impressively short timeframe. Based in Chelsea Harbour Studio, we found the design team to be highly experienced and wonderfully friendly when we were invited over for a coffee to learn more about what they do. They continuously change the interior of their own working space so you can enjoy an up-to-date and inspiring surrounding when you come to discuss a project. Now that’s impressive and dedicated customer service!
Aware that fashion is truly global, the second company – StudioOnline – offers collections for sitting rooms, dining rooms kitchens and bedrooms online. Customers can choose to buy anything from a completely designed room to just a few perfect accessories to add a modern touch to their existing space. The Sunday Times has even called StudioOnline ‘the Net-a-Porter of interiors!’
This season, popular colours for interiors are the same as the ones we saw on the spring summer catwalks during London Fashion Week. The “it” colours are head to toe yellow and monochrome, and we seriously love the idea of translating these trends into our home by adding a yellow cushion in a monochrome room for a pop of colour à la Kris Jenner!
Staying ahead of the curve, th2Designs are often two or three seasons ahead of trends. Top coats are massive this season, with whisperings of the trench coat being the must-have comeback item for AW15. Designers at th2Designs took inspiration from this tailoring and detailing and cleverly translated it into their interiors, and now you can too. For instance, the leather buckle straps they use in their cushion range can also be seen in Michael Kors’ designs. Florals are another huge trend this season (shock horror!) and the th2Design team use the recurring fashion trend to add dimension to their fabrics just like Rebecca Minkoff and Prabal Gurung.
Ever on the lookout for excuses to shop online, we’ve already browsed the StudioOnline website and picked our favourite pieces.
We will always recommend Charlie’s Chair– perfect for the adventurous YCB lady. Just like a large statement necklace the royal blue velvet chair will add that extra spark to any room.
Want to update your bedroom but feel new sheets and pillows just won’t do it? We suggest the square on square bedside table. The gold hardware and deep blue exterior are beautifully feminine. Like a classic white Oxford shirt, it’s a furniture staple that looks good together with any colour scheme.
Now, it’s not a surprise that we drink copious amounts of coffee so it comes without saying that we naturally gravitate towards coffee tables, and the button and boxed is our favourite. Large enough to double as a chair, it brings a sense of serious sophistication to your space.
Interior design trends trickle off the runways and into our homes much like fashion. You’d never want to be caught with (gasp) last season’s sofa. Let StudioOnline be your stylist. With the click of a button all this year’s fashions can be delivered straight to your door.
