People often ask me what inspires me when designing interiors.
L to R: Lisa w/ Hamptontoes, Elizabeth w/ Pretty Pink Tulips, Ashley w/ Asha, Sue w/ the Zhush & Carolyn w/ The Buzz
A homeowner's wardrobe can be a strong indicator as to the type of style championed. Is the home inhabited by one who dresses elegantly and timeless, is it one who loves a modern day take on classics, perhaps the individual loves some splashes of glamour and fun in their ensembles, do they dress in neutral with bold accessories or maybe the homeowner dresses with a bohemian sense of style?
Last night I had some fun "stepping out" for a couple of hours to join some lovely blogging buddies for a fashion show. We attended the Carlisle & Per Se Fashion Show in Greenwich sponsored by Connecticut Cottages and Gardens http://www.ctcandg.com/. Carolyn of http://thebuzz.dianejameshome.com/ modeled fashions with her lovely sister and mother...they were fabulous!
The evening reminded me that fashion (just one of my many influences) and interior design are closely related. What inspires you when pulling together an interior space?
