Almost two months in and the New Year is officially in full swing! With that comes all the fashion and design hustle and bustle to launch spring and summer collections. A few trends bridging both fashion and interior design worlds have caught our eye, and have become part of 2016’s inspiration. Check them out:
1. Marled Knits
Chunky, cozy knits have always been one of our year-round favorites, but a marled color-way just makes them that much more fashion forward. From marled pillows and upholstery for the home, to eco knit wraps for the wardrobe, the design element offers comfort, versatility, and style in one.
2. Silver linings
While the tinsel may have made its way back into the closet until the next holiday season, metallics still continue to shine in spring and summer fashion and décor. A glint of gold, a shimmer of silver, or a brushstroke of bronze–add a subtle glamour to any piece.
3. New materials
With each new year comes more creativity and innovation, preparing us to take on what the future may behold. This year brings new or updated materials to experiment with–draping linen and Tencel blends, lighter virgin wools, or even, eco recycled polyester. We believe that using innovative and environmentally friendly materials is the perfect way to breath new life into your favorite designs. This season, check out in2green’s award winning indoor/outdoor fabrics made 100% from recycled plastic bottles!
4. Gingham and large plaids
The sunnier, warm weather version of buffalo plaid–gingham–has made its mark both on the runway and in the home. In picnic plaids or larger checkered varieties, this classic graphic seems an easy go-to for a fresh start for the new year.
