Focus: Birds of Feather

This spring why don’t you introduced Bird motifs and feathers into your decor scheme. Bird prints are seen as cheerful and springy and are no longer restricted to just children’s rooms decor. As for feathers, they were seen all over the ramp and are also being seen on various decor accessories like lampshades and cushions. So why don’t you bring these feathery friends into your living space.

Trend Alert: Stripes

Fashion to Decor- Stripes
Another huge trend seen on the ramp this season was Stripes and everyone from Dolce & Gabbana to Moschino to Ralph Lauren to Versace was seen using this print. Be it thin or thick, horizontal or vertical stripes is definitely one trend which is going to be a huge this season and it seems like it is here to stay. Stripes are also making a huge appearance in Home Decor, which is not all that surprising since they are everywhere and if used well can add spunk to a room. Fellow blogger Katie came up with spot vs stripes for this week, you can see her blog here where I also participate and you can too http://tagatrend.co.uk/2013/02/18/spots-vs-stripes-tag-2/

Focus: 50 shades of Green

Ok, so remember we mentioned that Emerald Green has got the honour of being Pantone colour 2013. But let us be honest, Emerald green as gorgeous as it is for clothes and accessories,is a bit too stark to have all around the house. Which is why, a slightly duller shade of emerald is the one we are seeing in Interior decor. As for me, like I said before, Emerald Green over Honeysuckle or Tangerine Tango anyday. Whether it is clothes or interiors the colour green adds a sense of lush and earthy calm, appealing to our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.
So do bring in these shades of Green in your wardrobe as well as interiors.
P.S- I have already bought myself a pair of Green pants from Promod which I wear everywhere and Green cushions are my latest decor buy, how do you plan to add green to your life?

Trend:Animal Prints
Animal print and animal pelts have been synonymous with luxury and wealth since the rise of civilizations. It is thought to be the oldest form of clothing and as time went on they also started being used to decorate home via carpets. Wild animal prints (thankfully not skin or fur) have come back onto the fashion scene of late from handbags and shoes to accessories and bed linens, this fun and funky trend seems here to stay.
