My roots are in fashion. It's what I studied in college. I had a hard time deciding between Fashion and Interior Design, and even though Fashion won out in college, Interior Design won out in the end. That said, the basic inspiration for each is really very similar...so today I thought I'd have a little fun.
I was looking through the Ruche Summer Look Book (aaaaaah, bliss) and thought it might be fun to see if I could use a couple of their outfits as inpiration to create some pretty rooms. This was a fun exercise. Check it out.
First up, this peppy little number. Sunny and casual, I love the poppy-colored stripes and the tiny touch of yellow in the bangle on her wrist.
Here's what I came up with:
Bedding - Dwell Home
Rug, Headboard and Bedside Table - West Elm
Pillows - Etsy
Table Lamp - PBTeen
Pendants - Frederic Vasseur
Campaign Desk - World Market
I definitely played up the yellow here...but I love the poppy/yellow combo! This room would be so much fun to lounge in!
Next up, this chic little short-all with hot pink sandles (not to mention the pretty aqua-colored cruiser).
And my interpretation:
Sofa, Chairs and Ottoman - Serena and Lily
Rug - PBTeen
Lamps - ebay
Pillows - Etsy
Artwork - My Own
Table via Olioboard
Now this is a room that really feels like "me". Lovin' all the gray with the touches of pink and aqua. So pretty and restful.
So tell me, my dear reader, does your closet inspire your decor (or vice versa)?
