Fashions and trends can play a huge role in our everyday life, be it an accessory, gadget or clothing, what we wear, do and even how we communicate can often be dictated by fashion. This trend has even made it’s way into our homes. Whether we like it or not, when choosing new items for the home or deciding upon new colour schemes, whether conscious or subconscious, modern trends and fashions will play somewhat of a role in the decision process.
Some things in life however never go out of fashion, such a jeans. This simple example of an everyday garment that has been ‘in fashion’ for decades highlights the fact that when something is useful and durable, it stands the test of time. With some things, it’s not even that they’re fashionable, they’re just essential. Now, when it comes to ‘fashion’ in the home and home décor, stripes are the home furnishings equivalent to jeans. Stripes never go out of fashion, their shades might but dots and stripes can always be found in our home or in our wardrobes.
Over recent years, there has been a trend within the home towards monochrome and block colouring. As time has progressed, it has become easier and easier for us to re-decorate every few years, a factor that has played an important role in our views on
colours, shapes and patterns. Many of us have tended to opt for block colour curtains or blinds of late, opting for neutral colours or colours that are easy to blend so that when we do re-decorate, we will not have to replace the most expensive items within the room. Others however stick to the classic, floral approach. Tastes are personal and when it comes to our home nothing gets more personal than decorating and furnishing! No matter what your style, taste or preferences adding a bit of pattern to a room can make a huge difference, one that only by seeing will you believe.
If you love stripes, bold colours and patterns, finding the right scheme for you and your home can be a nightmare because nothing quite matches up to the wacky, eccentric and original style you are looking for. For the colourful types of the world, there can never be enough bold and this can be a challenge! For those who don’t love stripes or don’t really ‘do’ bold and beautiful, finding that subtle hint of pattern to brighten up a dull room can be challenging too.
