The world of interiors and fashion often overlap, with each industry drawing inspiration from one another, and offering nods from faint coincidences in color palettes to can't-be-denied crossovers. As fashion weeks in chic cities around globe wrap up, we take a look at the top trends from this year's fall runways to forecast what might be showing up in our homes soon.
Remember Pantone's Color(s) of the Year? They're hard to forget, especially that absolutely everywhere blush hue. Despite the Hamptons shortage of rosé this past summer, there was no scarcity of blush in the collections of various designers, nor its muted baby blue brother, and from the looks of it, this hue duo will continue to shine in the coming year. The colors from Leanne Marshall's designs above are delicately echoed in this bathroom from New York Cottages & Gardens. The contrast creates a striking balance of serenity and emotion, quite similar to the ying/yang within us. In a home, it can unite all styles in one room, no man (or woman) left behind.
It's 2016: Go ahead and be bold. With the digital realm allowing for content to come through our handheld devices at a million mph, take the same approach with design. More is more when combining strong colors and patterns all in one space, or on one look, like Concept Korea's indulgent runway looks (spotted on The LA Fashion Magazine). In your home, it's all in the execution: Take a cue from designer Andrea Schumacher's dining room and don't be afraid to use colors that you gravitate towards at full volume.
Single piece designs created to give off the illusion of multi-piece garments (Thom Browne's quirky creations, via Vogue, are an example) and sheer chiffon dresses and skirts that looked as though bouquets, rather than models, were making their way down the runway. Many of the designs showcased at NYFW played with fantasy and life's structured reality. The same might be said for the trickery going on in the world of interiors, where mirrors and accent ceilings that become accent walls are being used to fashion spaces that aren't really there.

Contradictory to Miranda Priestly's reaction in "The Devil Wears Prada", florals for spring are, in fact, groundbreaking (or at least they're going to be). It doesn't end with just greenery, though, as designers like Altuzarra (image via Vogue) went the extra mile and incorporated lemons and snake prints. Similarly, the unique wallcoverings from Katie Deedy of Grow House Grow are blossoming with drama, romance and plenty of dreamy flora.
