There has never been a language barrier attached to fashion; not being able to speak Italian does not limit our access to Milan Fashion Week.
But with the help of Google translate, language is now also no longer a barrier to Italian Interior Decor blogs. Which means we can now explore a whole new range of interior decor articles! To translate these pages just hit the button next to favourite on the top bar.
Prints inspired by patterns and colours found in the garden were prevalent at Milan Fashion week, especially at Emilio Pucci. You can take this into your home, especially into the kitchen where you can create a very rustic feel by introducing plants and herbs. Design outfits author Nora shows us how in our favourite article here focusing on Ikea kitchen designs!
Spring Summer collections don’t usually feature a lot of black, it’s not a very summery colour. But one of the things which stood out in Milan is that black featured a lot in detailing, to create patterns or in accessories, Max Mara and Fausto Puglisi both featured a lot of black. My favourite designs using this idea came from Fendi however, where black was used on white material to create intricate designs to maintain a summer feel. A black white combination applied in the home would give a clean and open feel to the home. This is something Italian Bark looks at directly in the article above.
Defined lines and structured outfits are something you would expect to find in Milan and this year didn’t disappoint with sharp lines and shoulder pads! To look for inspiration for this kind of look I have turned to architecture blog, Archipipity. The article above looks coffee tables, with intricate shapes, he shows us how thinking outside the box when it comes to furniture can reap décor rewards!
Block colour has been a trend in interiors for a while now, but change that block colour to white and you can bring in a really modern feel, which works especially when combined with more vintage, bohemian looking furniture. I started thinking about how to work this into my home after seeing the designs at Roberto Cavalli which encompassed this vibe. I stumbled across this blog and this article which really demonstrates this Scandinavian look.
Designs seen in Milan are often more experimental than designs seen in other cities. Trying out new ideas and new fabrics is always a great way to learn what works in your home and that is exactly what this blog is doing. Grey is a colour which never goes out of fashion and an almost concrete looking fabric was used at Giorgio Armani, Fendi and Bottega Veneta. While this isn’t a look you can ‘easily’ recreate in your home, it’s an interesting idea to explore, and no better place to than by looking at this blog and especially the above article!
