Craft F(l)air

From art to fashion to music to interiors, styles cycle in popularity, always coming back as we welcome the nostalgia that fills art with memories and meaning. Reflecting on styles that remind us of the iconic 1980’s and 1990’s, as well as our childhood years, we are able to piece together our favorite things, igniting a passion within us that motivates and inspires.

 

 

The trends of this summer represent an eclectic mix of flashbacks that have shaped our lives. It’s all about nostalgia. Though there are some trends that we hope to leave in the past forever, the resurfacing of some is often a surprisingly welcome addition to our present, which is what we’ve seen as we’ve watched these retro trends evolve to stay relevant.

 

Bold 90's stripes and broad plaids in fashion design bring thematic options for fresh interiors.

 

GEOMETRIC GEMS

This season, we see the geometric designs that so boldly ruled the 90’s. Patterns and prints, uniform and loose, cover clothing and bleed into interior spaces. Checkered flooring offers an eye-catching foundation that can be easily personalized to support the colors and styles of your space.

CULTIVATED COLOR COMBINATIONS

Patterned wallpaper or painted walls ensure that no room is boring: there’s always something to look at.  Pink and turquoise color combinations make their way to textiles and art, so reminiscent of the 80’s. Paired with strong repeated lines and geometric patterns, this eccentric combination anchors the remainder of the room’s committed color scheme.

 

 

This colorful palette provides the opportunity to add your favorite hues into your space, emphasizing the joyful life that resides within.

SIMPLE SKETCHES

As nostalgia further dominates interior styles, handmade doodles and notebook daydreams wander from jackets and jeans to frames and tiles.  Amusing, child-like drawings create a meandering attitude that feels personal, loosening us up with promises of youth and energy. Fashion and interiors take cues from Naive art, Art Brut, children’s book illustration, Action Art and Bauhaus, providing an endless supply of inspiration to reimagine your space.

 

Art History influences Fashion influences Interior Design.

 

One of the easiest ways to incorporate amusing doodles is through art: framed, pinned, painted, or drawn. Whether you create a collage of eclectic visuals or focus your eye on a large wall mural, you can be sure the art won’t go unnoticed. Another method of infusing the spirit of guileless creativity is that of adding textiles with bright prints or handmade rugs for the colorful cherry-on-top. Doodled details give you the ability to have a room that simultaneously looks professionally designed and enjoyably lit.

MAD MIXTURES

Get loose with it. Create a feast for the eyes with a storm of radness: saturated color, bold contrast, varying patterns. Throwing bold paint splatters around like you’re Jackson Pollock can be messy and eclectic, but when paired with minimalist furniture and patterned highlights, you get a perfectly balanced interior.

Regardless of style or purpose, the flair of a craft fair is in its passion. It’s not a mess of random items, but a mix of nostalgic meaning and nuanced memories. Everything means something, all made with love. Likewise, your space is a personal amalgamation of everything you love: colors, patterns, art, books, music, and memories. The best spaces are designed with the same loves and passions as its principal inspiration.
