Fashion Week Trends That Work In the Home

London Fashion Week has closed its catwalks but the talk of new trends is just beginning. Fashion bloggers and journalists have been quick to give us the lowdown on the trends to look out for in 2017, but we thought we'd go one step further and bring the runway to the home. Here's a few fashion week trends that work just as well in your wardrobe as they do in your interior.


Gorgeous shades of beige and khaki graced the likes of Burberry's & Calvin Luo's runways, but this trend for neutrals works just as well in the home. Browns, beiges, greys, and creams give a minimalist feel to your interior whilst creating a really calm and cosy atmosphere to relax in.

Pink & Blue

Ever since Pantone announced Rose Quartz & Serenity as their colours of the year for 2016, gorgeous shades of pink and blue have graced the interior and fashion design world. Even as we move into a new season of new trends these timeless pastel colours maintain their beautiful appeal.

Black as Night

Alessandro Lucioni and Matteo Volta were just a few designers who kitted their models out all in black at London Fashion Week, but all black interiors have long been having a big impact on design schemes and create a really luxe look when mixed with splashes of white and grey.

Yellow Accents

Bold hints of yellow stood out in Proenza Schouler's 2017 collection, and it might not be a coincidence that Pantone included Primrose yellow in their colour trend predictions for next year also. Yellow makes a gorgeous addition to an interior when used in small doses or as an accent colour. It' a great way to usher in the warmth of Spring to your home.

Extravagance dominated London  Fashion Week this year with  puffed sleeves, ruffles, extra long sleeves, layers, lace and sheen cropping up everywhere. Though the Scandi-influence on design has lead to a huge popularity in minimalist interiors, LFW reminded us of the beauty in that rich luxe look, which works just as well in your wardrobe as in your interior. Think rich dark tones, hints of gold, velvet textures, layers of textiles and ostentatious artwork to create a look of extravagance in your home.

Monochrome is a timeless trend that's forever being reinvented with patterns and textures. This year both fashion and interior designers have continued to pay it special attention, using checks, stripes and other patterns to give it an edgy, interesting appeal. When done correctly it's such an easy way to master that chic in vogue look in your home.

Vivacious Colours

We've seen that black and monochrome had a large presence at Fashion Week, but fans of a brighter look will be pleased to know that vivacious colours made their mark too. Peter Pillotto's Spring/Summer 2017 collection captured the joie de vivre of South American culture, using bright pinks, blues, yellows, greens and dizzy prints to capture that paradise vibe.  For interior designers, adding pops of one single colour has always been a great solution to to adding warmth to dull spaces and a bright on bright look has been gaining momentum for some time. It's a great alternative to minimalism if plain is not your style.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
