RUNWAY FASHION MEETS INTERIOR DESIGN By Jaimie Anand and Daniella Lopez
Runway trends can be fun, unique and even quite eye-catching. Trends in color schemes, prints or fabric textures can easily be incorporated into home décor, but trying to incorporate those more avant-garde looks or the latest trend du jour can lead a homeowner to ask, “What on earth am I going to do with that?” when, say, that chartreuse faux-fur floor pouf becomes passé. With fashion turning on a dime these days, trying to work different sartorial trends into the interior design of any space can be overwhelming. The trick to pulling it off is to not use all the trends all at once. Instead, select one or two of your favorites, implement them into your décor and then build from there. Here are some hot trends and key tips for adding them to your home’s look.

FRINGE BENEFITS Interior design is not just how the space looks but also how it makes you feel. Adding elements that offer people a more robust sensory experience— for example, a variety of fabric textures for tactile stimulation—gives a room’s design a deeper dimension and makes the space more interesting. There’s no denying that fringe is fun, edgy and everywhere right now. Fringe adds texture for that tactile experience, and it adds the flair to make a space stand out. Making it part of a room’s interior design scheme is super easy. A quick and relatively inexpensive way to adorn a room with some fringe is by adding some fringe-hemmed pillows or a throw blanket edged with it. Fringe is very versatile. It can be chic and modern when it needs to be, and it can also be used to give a more relaxed traditional style. Yes, fringe is a trend that can work for everyone.
