Which comes first the home design style or the fashion trend? It's hard to say. Seasonal fashion trends come and go with in months, where home design trends usually are in style for years.

Boho Chic

It is similar to Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic style with lace and floral print. Huge change is the use of BOLD color and BOLDER prints.

Boho Chic uses color as the base, and mixes patterns all day long. Hot coral reds mixed with cool turquoise. Think Eclectic Design on steroids. Bohemian style takes your well travelled self and implores you to express it in your surroundings.

Take Morocco and pair it with your traditional wing back chair. Use Native American Patterns mixed with East Indian. It all works in Boho design concepts. Use your grandma's traditional beaded necklace with your boho maxi dress and fringe leather shoes. It works!

In The 80s Waverly garden florals were all the rage. Now we are using similar prints in unusual ways. This wallpaper ceiling treatment is a unique hip design using a traditional floral.

Looking at online boutiques one can see that the trends for both home and clothing seem to be in sync. Floral is the big hit for Home and Fashion. Bold blooms seem to be springing up everywhere. Navy is abundant in both home design and fashion design. 

Navy in the kitchen is a new popular choice.

We haven't defined who sets the trend House or Fashion. We have discovered that using what you traditionally love, and pairing it with modern style works. It is safe take a trend, use your fav parts, and make it your own.
