2018 Fashion by Genny / Material Board by Four Hands
I have to admit, being born in the 70’s had an impact on my taste regarding fashion, music, and interior trends. It’s no secret that fashions often come back around. This fall expect to see some exciting influences from the ’70s and ’90s, as well as a continuation of traditional fall trends. I am excited by what people are wearing, which in turn effects our interior space and the music we listen to. My best theory has always been Music + Fashion = Interiors. This theory allows me to predict trends and to stay in touch when designing interior spaces.
Also, traveling nationally to report on the furniture and merchandise markets, you definitely notice a comparison between trends of fashion to interior décor. Check out the images of latest collections from fashion labels and furniture manufactures.

For 2018/19 women’s fall and winter collections, plaid, Bohochic, and versatile styles are the pattern trends. Neutrals, earth tones and pastels are all a constant color for fall/winter 2018, with rich and sophisticated hues alongside such as such as tomato/fire red, mustard, olive, navy and emerald as well as metallics, and surprisingly, bright color accents such as yellow and russet orange. These colors and patterns are also apparent at this fall/winter merchandise and furniture markets.

In jewelry and accessories, we’re seeing a huge re-emergence of colorful acrylics that were highly popular in the late ’80s and early ’90s. The popular flared look of the ’70s is also coming back, but not where you’d expect it. Instead of wide-leg or boot-cut jeans trending, it’s sweaters and tops that are rocking the design. Trends also include cords, stripes, vintage orals, braided details, fringe tassels and voluminous sleeves.

According to the fashion industry, research on the Boho trend reveals that the look is diversifying into a “global wanderer” theme, reflecting tribal print and traditional prints. Fashion and Interior Design for 2018 is more internationally mixed, encompassing many different cultures. We’re seeing this specifically in prints, patterns and color palettes.

For the interior industry, bold pops of color to mix fluidly with neutrals, balancing between vibrant and organic materials are the trend. Colors story is driven by accent pieces like rugs, pillows and art.
