If you’re planning a wedding and are lacking style inspiration, why not turn to other industries to see what’s trending? You could look to the catwalks to see what’s big for the latest season, or maybe you could see what design trends are making a splash. Alternatively, you could look to the world of interior trends for a blast of inspiration.
The world of interiors is always changing, with chic new styles to make a house feel more like home. We love the idea of those trends filtering into wedding trends and styles, whether it’s the current trend for marble and rose gold, or a touch of the tropical. Let’s take a look at some of the top interior trends, and how they translate into dreamy wedding styling.
First of all, we’re taking a cue from Pantone, which releases an annual ‘colour of the year’. This acts as a forecast of the hue that will dominate interior trends in the year ahead. This year the colour is called Greenery. It’s a refreshing, rejuvenating shade which provides a perfect accent to other neutral colours like stone and ivory. If you’re going for a natural/ botanical themed wedding, this charming hue is perfect for adding a pop of colour!
From street maps of your favourite cities in photo frames, to vintage globes perfectly positioned on desks and shelves, the map trend is huge for 2017. We love the idea of incorporating maps into your wedding, especially if you’re a couple that loves to travel! You could use protected vintage maps as place settings, or commission a personalised map of your hometown, maybe showing all the places of significance to you and your partner. These make great bases for wedding stationery!
The Geometric terrarium style is huge in interiors right now, especially for those going for a very modern, minimalist look. If that sounds like you and your partner, why not incorporate this pattern into your wedding? From honeycomb lanterns hanging from the ceiling, to a guest board with hexagonal tiles for each of your guests to write a message on the day, we can think of plenty of ways you can make your wedding totally geometric.
Traditionally used in Hindu and Buddhist cultures, the Mandala symbol is becoming increasingly popular around the home. From candles and rugs to throws and art prints, these circular patterns create a sense of spirituality. Your wedding invitations will look fabulous decorated with colourful Mandalas. You could even hand out coasters or candles with Mandala patterns as your wedding favours.
If you’re getting married in a seaside town in the height of summer, you should certainly consider a charming coastal theme! In the home, this usually involves nautical colours (bold blue and crisp white), with untreated wood and natural materials. For your wedding, you can incorporate sea shells, wicker baskets for centrepieces and even candles that create the scent of the sea!
