How Your Favourite Street Style Look Translates to your Home

By Coco
 
There’s no doubt about it that the worlds of fashion and decor are continuing to collide. As an interior designer, I have always believed in decorating your home to suit your lifestyle, personality and fashion sense. Read on to find out how your favourite street style looks can be translated into your home decor.
 
Black and White Street Style:
 
Nothing packs a more powerful interior design punch than the bold colour combination of black and white. While we have been wearing it for years, it’s making an aggressive comeback in our homes. The stark colour contrast makes for an incredibly dramatic and timeless classic. Opt for larger items such as upholstery, flooring, or walls in these monochromatic shades to make the biggest statement. 
 
Eclectic Street Style
More than ever, people are taking risks with combining different materials, styles and and items from different eras. While the high/low trend of mixing your favourite Louboutin pumps and Zara blazer has been around for some time now, people are really starting to adopt this way of thought into their interiors. We’re seeing a tremendous uprise in mixing a variety of different materials and finishes for a more collected, layered and energetic space. By creating this mix of materials, textures, and genres, your interior becomes more unique and truly tells the story of your lifestyle. Experiment by mixing unexpected colours, textures and furniture pieces to get that collected look.
 
Fur:

Fur is in. A hot trend both on the runways and off. As the daughter of a fashion stylist, I have always found myself perpetually surrounded by fur jackets, hats, and everything in between. As I grew older, I began incorporating this uber luxurious material wherever possible. It is really the epitome of luxury and decadence. In a similar way to how throwing on a fur vest or jacket instantly pumps up the luxe level of an outfit, adding a fur rug, throw or pillow can add amazing texture and flair to any room.
 
Mixed Metal Accessories:
While we have been wearing it on our bodies for centuries, metal is creeping into our homes in all guises and places, from wallpaper to flooring, appliances to furniture. For the most stylish interior metal touches, we are adoring it as a kitchen island finish. Opt for mixing warm metals such as brass and copper, with cool ones such as stainless steel for an unexpected and interesting layered look. The riskier and more fashion forward, the better.
