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.

Hot new release music dance tracks from Moonbootica called “Covered in Gold” and “Do Not Do Me (Like Dis)” is the catalysts of how fashion and interior designers visualize next trends and styles.   Intense and enveloping, it will be impossible to resist these songs, like the color of brown on the runway and the feel of decadence (gold metal finishes) in your home.

Going Home

Its been 8 years since I left Adelaide and my family.  I now embark a return journey with two beautiful girls and a dear and wonderful wife.  This is the world that I grew up dreaming and thinking about the importance of space that we live and work in.  Family and tradition is the keystone in making the right choices in life and how you design your way of thoughts.  I can’t wait for my children to feel the same way as I do.  More information on Adelaide to come.

A beautiful score from Alexandre Desplat for the movie The Shape of Water.  This music reminds me of Adelaide and the adventures I have had with my Italian family. I hope you enjoy!

Going through some changes.

Going through some changes.

Life is full of changes whether you like it or not, good or bad.  It can be unpredictable or something you are craving for.  It’s life’s motions of going back and forth, up or down.  I have this theory that there is never a right or wrong choice, but it’s how you perceive the next step of change.

The colors, voices, and visions of your future are judged by you and only you. Life’s changes in your interior space is a representation of where you are now.  It’s your story of the moment that includes memories of your past.  However, it is important on how you put it all together.

Top Song for Change – Rhye ( Count To Five)

So far in 2018, there are big changes in fabric, tile, wallpaper, and furniture styles and selections.  Bold colors, intricate patterns, culture symbols, mixed use of materials, and abstract forms are making a loud noise in the interior world.   These are statements that yearn for more freedom, more movement, more glamour, and more reasons to be you.  It’s no doubt that changes are hard, but what I do know is that it’s never the wrong time to make the right change.  AA

Music + Fashion = Design

Music + Fashion = Design

I had this revelation years ago that what makes interior design evolve are the influences music and fashion has on this industry.  I am constantly listening to new music, watching fashion shows and just being a part of the retail and music scene. How we celebrate music and fashion affects the styles and colors in our homes and the hospitality environment. Each month, I will be sharing with you my top selections of music and fashion that affect my decisions on interior design practice.

In 1994, I won a modeling competition in Sydney, Australia.  I was persuaded to continue my modeling career in Chicago, with Elite Modeling Agency.  I loved being involved with fashion which led me into the interior design world.  The previous owner of Elite Modeling Agency (Jane Stewart) is now my mother-in-law.  I actually married her beautiful and extremely talented step-daughter, Katharine .  It was one of those very lucky moments in my life.

I remember images of black and white photos of my father in a crisp cream suit and slick dark hair just arriving on a 30 day boat trip from Naples, Italy to Adelaide, Australia.  My father (Giacinto) immigrated to Australia in the 1950’s who then met my mother (Emilia), who also was part of an Italian family.  My family has a classic approach to life.  My mother would add a little perfume behind her ears no matter what occasion, and my father would polish his shoes everyday before work.  During breakfast, we would have Italian music playing on the radio, which occasionally someone in the family would sing along.  I have learnt from my parents that its important to cherish each moment and dress yourself and your surroundings to develop confidence in yourself and to attract friendships and relationships.  Their love for an elegant lifestyle translated to how I lived inside a home.  These are the memories that inspired my life through music and fashion.
