London Fashion Week AW2014 - Inspired Interiors

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

Following on from my previous post showing a few of my favourite collections in London Fashion Week I decided to go on a hunt for some brilliant patterned pieces to slot into your home.

Mariska Meijers Electric Ikat Cushion / Handmade Geometric Triangles Lampshade / The Loving Chair Company Odete Chair / Biba Fan Embroidered Cushion / Nitin Goyal Pixelated Triangles Cushion / Little Crochet Stool / Christiane Lemieux Black Ceramic Large Vase / Geometric Triangles Wall Stickers / Metallic Tropical Glass Jewellery Box / White Wood Bird Decoration 

I tried my hardest not to let this become too cushion-heavy, as there I found so many fantastic prints and patterns and colours! I chose 3 I felt reflected the trends I've seen in fashion week and interior design recently. The first is this inky blue, ikat print silk cushion. I love the rich colours and imperfect pattern, while this one is fairly expensive, I feel like you could create your own version using silk paints at home. The second cushion is this art deco inspired Fan Embroidered piece by Biba. This really reminded me of several pieces by Temperley London in its pale colours and elegant motifs. It would work really well if you have a fairly neutral or white interior and want to add pattern and detail in a subtle way. The last cushion is this Pixelated Triangle Cushion. The colours and geometric pattern reminded me of Holly Fulton's collection. Mixing this with different scales of angular patterns in similar shades would really recreate a catwalk inspired room. 
As far as other geometric inspired patterns go, I found this fantastic triangle print lampshade which comes in red or yellow too. These wall stickers could add an extra bit of detail to any plain wall, or you could even use them on furniture such as your dining table or wardrobe. The crochet stool adds some colour and pattern through the knit texture. The website actually shows it used as a side table too, which means you can actually see the detail, rather than sitting on it! 
Another seating option I found was this Yellow & purple reproduction French String Tub Chair from Wolf & Badger. I adore the classic shape of the seat, and the kaleidoscope/mirrored fabric really reminded me of the fabrics from Temperley London's 2014 collection, as well as some of Mary Kantrantzou's older ones.  
Some smaller accessories I found included this black vase, with a subtle 3d design that would look great with a mass of white peonies for a classic look or green chrysanthemums for something more modern. This storage box has a wonderfully bright design, and uses similar shapes and colours to many of Temperley London's dresses. My final piece is this almost Scandinavian inspired bird. I liked the monochrome leaf design and felt it would easily pop right into any style room. 

My general advice for creating fashion week inspired rooms is to chose a pattern genre depending on the style of your home... Art Nouveau/Deco designs work well with more classic styles, lots of neutral colours or blacks and metallics; Geometric patterns work well in a fairly minimal room, as combining different scales, types and colour shades make an impressive feature, so ideally use them against a blank white base. Although they do also work well against other modern patterns and create a visually exciting eclectic mishmash. The more intricate, or kaleidoscope patterns work well in many situations; it is more about finding a print or colour scheme that compliments (or contrasts) what you already have.
