Hey Friends! Can you believe that it is already 2018?! We are starting this year off with one of our favorite fashion trends of the moment: Military/Utility. Not only is this one of our go-to fashion trends, but we have also been seeing it in interiors lately. Whether it is the army green color, leather and brass details, or even just a simplistic design, we just can't get enough.
The military trend is huge in fashion right now. I mean, who doesn't own an army green jacket?! It is now a staple in our closets! Other items that are inspired by military are using canvas materials, brass accents, and other details such as leather buckles and ties. All of these details are beautiful, subtle touches to add to a neutral wardrobe. Now, how does this trend translate to interiors? A huge trend right now in interiors is accenting a space such as a kitchen or bathroom with painted cabinets. We are loving the rich army green tones (especially in the images shown below), and think that this is a great addition to a neutral space. It is a great color that adds depth to a room without being too vibrant. It is also no secret that we love adding brass accents throughout a home. Brass can be the dominant metal throughout your home or just added in as an accent on cabinet hardware, plumbing fixtures, or subtle accents on furniture and accessories. The same can be said for leather! We love incorporating leather to add warmth and texture to any space.
Another aspect of the military/utility trend is beauty in simplicity. There are beautiful details in both the fashion and interior trend, but they really stand out because of the minimal design that surrounds it. An otherwise neutral and simple de-cluttered space allows for the details to stand out and be appreciated for what they are instead of getting lost in an extravagant design. Are you enjoying this trend as much as we are? There is nothing like starting the year off fresh, and this interior trend won't disappoint!
