22 Nov Want This Room, Wear This Room No. 1
Today I’m excited to introduce a new series called “Want This Room, Wear This Room”. I have always been interested in the tie between fashion and design, and the question, “Does Fashion inspire Design?” Or vice versa? I think it probably works both ways. For example, in my own client work, there have been times when I have used the fashion world as inspiration for a space. And there have been times when a room I love dictated my outfit.
I thought it might be fun to illustrate this concept by picking a space that inspires me and show you items that will help you recreate this look literally and stylistically.
First up, “Want This Room”.
What I really love about this space is how rich it feels, yet it is also really simple. The classic black and white bedding sets off the jewel tone of the rug, and the deep wall color and molding. I like how the chalkboard serves as a makeshift headboard, and the chandelier and lamps bring in some sparkle. Also, how pretty is that fringe trim pillow in the board above? I think I need a couple of those for my window seat!
The “Wear This Room” plan for this space was pretty fun for me to put together, I must admit. : ) I especially love those loafers and the booties with the ribbon! I find that focusing on color combinations I admire in a space truly helps me put outfits together. Conceptually, it just makes more sense to me. Looking at style through a design lens enables me to be more put together, I think.
I’m interested to hear your perspective on this…
Do you think your fashion sense influences your design choices for your home? Or are you more of a design person whose interior decisions reflect in your personal style? Or perhaps you are not sure, but thinking about it this way may be helpful for you?
I would love to hear from you in the comments!
