For some people, fashion is a way of life. For the rest of us, finding ways to incorporate the latest looks into our everyday lives can feel a bit challenging.

From playful colors to clothes that take a stand, here are our top picks for runway styles to bring to the comfort of your home. 

1. Rich, Dark Blue Hues

Rich, dark blue was all over the runway, as it was used by several designers - specifically Michael Sontag. This color effortlessly adds a bit of luxury to any wardrobe. Add this same element of luxury to your home decor by incorporating velvet accents like throw pillows, or give old pillows an update with pillow covers like these Luster Velvet Pillow Covers from West Elm in Regal Blue. If you're really into velvet, be bold and go all out with a luxe, velvet couch like the one below. Tour the Space: Stylish Condo With City View

Contemporary with some midcentury modern influence, this condo living room uses a neutral backdrop to allow the furnishings to be the statement of the space. A navy blue velvet sofa with a trio of different throw pillows becomes the focal point in the room, and two rugs layer together to ground the round coffee table decorated with pink flowers and candlesticks.

Raquel Hladky is one designer who has a knack for creating incredibly interesting prints and her runway show at Berlin Fashion Week did not disappoint. Her pieces are youthful and invigorating. To bring an element of that youthful energy to your home, try using patterned wallpaper. Our personal favorites are from designer Justine Blakeney and can be found at her shop The Jungalow.

3. Vibrant Orange

We haven’t seen this much vibrant orange on the runway since the 90’s, but we’re so glad it made its reappearance at Berlin Fashion Week. Inspired by this look from Dorothee Schumacher, this is just the right color to add a bit a playfulness to any home. This Alfred Amber Sofa designed by James Harrison for CB2 is just the item to give your home that cheeky glow.

Opposites Attract

Blue and orange are color-wheel opposites that pair beautifully together. Here, large-scale orange stripes on the ceiling complement the smaller blue pattern on the rug in this vibrant nursery.

Wallpaper Headboard

Bold blue and orange wallpaper stands in for a traditional headboard in this vibrant guest bedroom.

Rustic and Bright

A smooth wood ceiling and rough hewn dining table add natural warmth to this contemporary dining space. Bright orange upholstered chairs serve as the exclamation point in this room's design.

Bright and Bohemian Teen Living Space

A deep orange base is the jumping off point for the other colors in this fun teen girl's room, like pink, green and blue.

Stripes on the Ceiling

An orange and white striped ceiling creates a whimsical canopy effect for this nursery and a colorful backdrop for the charming woven mobile.

Add Ribbon Trim

Use ribbon and fabric glue to transform plain white bedding and window treaments into custom pieces with a colorful accent.

Light Up the Room With Orange

Transform a thrift store chandelier with a few coats of glossy orange paint. Here, it's a bright focal point when swagged across a white lacquered vintage nightstand.

A Peek of Orange

Deep gray walls and window treatments create a dramatic, moody space, but it's the orange drape liners that add unexpected brightness and tie the room together.

Modern Orange Accents

For a more modern take on the dining room with orange accents, X-back chairs add color in an all-white space complete with a sculptural light fixture.

White Laundry Room With Orange Accents

Who says a laundry room can't be fun? Here, a color-block paint treatment that's repeated in the niche above the washer and dryer brightens things up.

4. Black on Black

Odeur Studios hit the runway with tons of gorgeous neutrals, but what stood out the most to us was its timeless black-on-black look. This particular black-on-black look is the perfect blend of street style with a bit of couture. To recreate a similar effect at home, try incorporating black in unexpected places like in your dinnerware for example. We love these all-black porcelain Apilco Reglisse Dinner Plates from Williams Sonoma. 

5. Activism in Fashion

Prabal Gurung is known for creating beautiful, well-made, feminine pieces, but what stole the show this season was his tees featuring activist slogans. From "Revolution Has No Borders" to "This is What a Feminist Looks Like", his tees made a powerful statement. The best way to incorporate the fearless spirit of his shirts into your home is by purchasing activist-centric wall art. We're in love with this "The Future is Female" print found on Etsy.
