Monday Inspiration: Fashionable Forms
Fashion is the springboard for so many colors and styles in home decor. I am always inspired by what I see walking down the runway – and begin to imagine how I would use the colors and fabrics in a room.
The colorful layers Ralph Rucci created with this gown seem to have been recreated in this Marcia room, with layers of colorful pillows atop a neutral sofa on a pigmented rug. Toning down the accessories, like the model has, keeps the look chic, rather than overdressed.
Both Oscar de la Renta and this apartment in House Beautiful used a shock of chartreuse to give a pop to a teal print and metallic accessories.
My own favorite designers - Cucinelli, Valentino, Chanel, Carolina Herrera, Elie Saab – continue to inspire my work with their chic couture. What inspires you?
