As a designer, I'm always keeping my eyes open for interior design inspiration. Sometimes I find it in obvious places - blogs and magazines, for example. Other times it's more subtle - a metallic rainbow-hued oil spot on the sidewalk, or the intricate pattern on a city map. And sometimes - someone's wearing it! Fashion and interior design go hand in hand, so it's no surprise that they strongly influence one another.
I, like most living and breathing females, am currently obsessed with Pinterest. Constantly on the lookout for visual inspiration, I have pinboards loaded with design ideas, inspiring art, and stylish fashion (that I wish I could afford). I thought it would be fun to explore the inspiration that fashion has on interior design literally. How can we take a winter outfit and translate it to an interior space? Or, put more simply...how do we turn an outfit into a room?
By exploring what makes the outfit work - the colors, the textures, and the tailoring. I was immediately drawn to the chunky ribbed texture of the scarf; the beautifully aged dark brown leather boots; and the relaxed color palette of creamy neutrals, rich browns, and layered shades of blue. I chose these furniture pieces because they echoed the vibe of the outfit - tailored and well-fitting, but not stuffy. The soft pile rug reminded me of the cozy wraparound scarf. And the blue accessories, ranging in color from aqua to peacock to cornflower, had a similar tone-on-tone look as the chambray shirt does with the denim jeans.
Interior design inspiration is everywhere. With a little creativity, you can use what you're drawn to naturally to inspire your home decor!
