Home Fashion Trend: Merging Indoors and Outdoors

One of our favorite trends this summer is creating a continuous flow between our outdoor and indoor spaces. KORHANI home offers a variety of area rugs that will look gorgeous on the patio, or can be smoothly transitioned inside to give your home a trendy statement. Similar to accessories such as scarves and hats that can quickly change the look of an outfit; using area rugs as home fashion can be exceptionally versatile and can be used to alter interior design themes.

Breaking the barrier between indoor living areas and outdoor spaces is one of the hottest 2014 trends in home fashion. We can finally say goodbye to the days when backyard fashion meant throwing a few chairs outdoors. To give your outdoor space a makeover, add accent pieces such as bright pillows, a bold area rug, and stylish sofas – just like you would inside! Your favourite outdoor pieces can then be brought inside and added to your interior décor in the fall.

You can even start using outdoor pieces in your home right now. One of our favorite reasons to use outdoor décor inside is due to its durability and stylish presence. There’s no longer a need to be worried about accidental breaks, spills or stains! KORHANI home recommends these reversible area rugs for versatility both indoors and out:

Fashion Forecast: Tropical Storm

There’s a new tropical storm trend forecast for this summer, and it’s filled with palm prints and tropical florals. From fashion accessories to décor, these retro prints can take your outfit from poolside to a night on the town, or your home from modern chic to a relaxed, tropical villa. As one of the hottest styles this season, palm prints add syle to both indoor and outdoor spaces.

Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day! In honour of this great country’s birthday, we thought we’d share some throwback photos from the runway presentation of our Canada Collection.

On March 8th, 2012, KORHANI home showed our exciting “Canada Collection” runway show to an international audience in Berlin, Germany at the Canadian Tourism Commission’s annual Canada ITB event. The collection, which celebrated the Canadian story was unveiled in a runway show which fused home décor with couture, for a once in a lifetime journey through the Canadian cultural landscape.  Creative Director, Kirsten Korhani envisioned a collection for this event that would highlight the raw and rustic beauty of the Canadian landscape, it’s rich heritage and unique cultural emblems. Check out some of the designs created, below.

Home Décor Trend: Bachelor Pad Chic

Bachelor Pad Decor Inspiration

Reclaimed wood, industrial fixtures, concrete, dark neutral colours, metal furniture and accents – in recent years, the world of design has been dominated by the industrial design trend, which is quite dark and masculine.  Whether you are, in fact, a bachelor, looking to update your pad, or simply have a more masculine design esthetic, we decided to put together some Bachelor Pad inspiration.

 

DÉCOR INSPIRATION:

Adding masculine touches to your space is quite easy, and industrial accent pieces are widely available in most retailers.  You can also add a dark accent wall to your space by painting one wall a dark grey, or of you are really bold, black. This can become the focal point of your room for artwork or your entertainment center.  And since your floors are probably wood, how about adding in a KORHANI home area rug in a masculine pattern?

Home Décor Trend: Light Neutrals

Neutral room decor

 

Spring is here and the temperatures are finally creeping towards double digits (where we hope they stay).  It’s time to open up your windows (and most likely clean them), clean up the yard, and pack away your winter wardrobe.

Part of our spring cleaning routine is also packing away our heavy winter home accessories – our big wool blankets, dark throw cushions, and winter-themed accessories.  When looking for some spring replacements, we found lots of inspiration from light and airy spaces decked out in white, beige, and light neutral colours.  If you’re a stickler for the old “no white after Labour Day” rule, then we suggest you hop on this decor trend now, and make the most of it during the spring and summer months.

You don’t need a complete design overhaul to implement this décor trend.  Simply adding in a few accessories such as some creamy white accent pillows, a luxurious camel coloured cashmere throw, white candles, and some in-season white tulips will brighten up your space.  Another great suggestion: change up your area rug! This is a quick and easy way to brighten a large area of space in no time at all! The KORHANI home Temora (below left) and Constance (below right) area rugs would complement this trend beautifully.
