Using Fashion To Inspire The Design Of Your Home
There are plenty of magazines and blogs that feature segments in which the interior space of a room is designed by taking inspiration from a particular outfit (one such magazine that comes to mind is the late Domino). When you think about it, there are plenty of ways that fashion can inform the design choices that we make for our homes, from colour and pattern to fabric!
- Coco Chanel – Whilst white is definitely seen as being the glamorous indicator of this famous designer, you could also use touches of nautical navy. Gold rope chains would also go a long way towards this old Hollywood glamour theme.
- Ralph Lauren – Whilst this designer is notorious for catering to the whims of both males and females, there is definitely a tie with masculine colour schemes. Even deep wood seems to blend seamlessly with the style of this particular designer.
- Marc Jacobs – The best way that you can embody this designer in your home is to mix together fun, bold lines and great colour (bright oranges, yellows and whites work a treat). You should also look for the right amount of quirk to tie it all together.
- Calvin Klein – The best way to embody this designer is to look for classic lines and neutral colours. You should also play with the fine line between masculine and feminine for the best affects. This designer is known for his minimalist approach.
There are plenty of other designers out there that you could choose to evoke when it comes to a new interior for a room of your home, such as: Kate Spade, Lilly Pulitzer, Nanette Lepore, Vera Wang and Pucci. Why not pick a fashion piece by your favourite designer that you love and base the design of an entire room around that single piece?
