In the fashion world, there is no question that Chanel has always been known for its signature black and white pieces. So, when I found the room below in the archives of House Beautiful, my immediate thought was to pair it with this look from the Fall 2009 Chanel collection….
A perfect balance of black and white. Unexpected details and sexy materials with ladylike accessories create this classy look. But then, another design house came to mind…Balmain! One of my favorite collections of the season (and I guarantee you’ll see many pieces in the September issues of fashion magazines across the country). Less ladylike, more rocker chic. Still sophisticated, but in a more casual, wearable style. While the Chanel look matches the more traditional accessories of the room like the chairs and the sleek marble flooring, the edgier and more relaxed pieces like a worn in rug and the rough finished mirrors channel the Balmain look. So, dear readers, I leave it to you to decide. Which look best matches this glamorous entryway?
