Fashion Influence: Menswear Looks in Design

As a continuation of my March series on fashion’s influence on interiors, today I want to look at how common themes in menswear have been popping up in home design lately.

When it comes to menswear, pattern is king. Think pinstripes, plaids, houndstooth and herringbone manifested in neutrals and other strong hues. This suit is a perfect example, as are the Brooks Brothers images below it.

Not too long ago, Elle Decor pointed out menswear fashions in home décor as a design “Trend Alert,” noting this plaid wallpaper and this dinnerware set, both from Ralph Lauren Home, among other items.

I’ve also seen other great home design accessories inspired by menswear.

And these rooms offer stylish masculine appeal:

This boys’ bedroom design by Tobi Fairley includes plaid duvets mixed with grey linen wingback headboards that are situated wonderfully in front of beautiful grey draperies. I love the addition of an animal print with the rug.

Herringbone makes a statement when the pattern is exaggerated. I love the focal point over the fireplace here, and isn’t the sofa below fabulously bold?!

Menswear looks are all over home design these days. What do you think of the fashion-inspired trend?
