When it comes to inspiration, not all rooms need to be full interpretations of runway looks. Sometimes, the looks can provide inspiration in smaller doses, filling in corners, hallways, or little areas that are lacking direction. There have been many times where I’ve created smaller vignettes in my own home based on colors, styles or patterns from the pages of fashion magazines…
To give you a great example of this, I’ve paired this fall look from Basso & Brooke with a bedroom from m. design. How many times have you moved into a new space with the bare essentials, only to get stumped on where to begin with accessories? In this case, we’re pulling the colors from a more traditional look to apply them in a modern space. The green becomes the main accent color, while touches of cream and gold add some great contrast and a touch of glamour. The mirror even provides a hint of the sophistication we see in the runway style, without it appearing out of place. A great reason why you should never rule out something you’re intitially drawn to simply based on the overall look – sometimes the inspiration is really in the details.
Whether seeking a new color palette or a shot of original style for your home, fashion is always a fantastic place for inspiration! I’m very excited to be a new contributor here on the LoftLife blog where I’ll be featuring weekly posts every Tuesday that show just how easy it is to translate runway looks into styled rooms.
The series is called Rooms from the Runway – something I started two years ago on my blog, coco+kelley, and I hope it will be a great source of quick inspiration for many of you! Shall we get started?
Pulled from the Alberta Ferretti 2010 Resort collection, this ensemble features a surprising pop of mustard and blue against black, khaki and brown. Translated into this room featured at Nuevo Estilo, we see a classic style that is consistent with Ferretti’s design. Using similar neutrals as the base, the blue urn and yellow flowers add that same pop of color, carefully placed in a way that doesn’t overwhelm the space.
*Tip: If you’re unsure of adding a brighter color to your rooms, testing it out with a little floral arrangement will help you see if you really like it without breaking the bank! Next to throw pillows, they’re the quickest and easiest way to transform a space.
