Pattern Play: Design from your Wardrobe

April 2, 2013



Fashion plays such a roll in interiors.  While pulling inspiration for a current project, I found that West Elm had some beautiful pieces that can really make a statement.  This look created by Anthropologie was my queue in combining colors, textures, and patterns.

The gold lace jacket brings life and texture with a feminine touch that is mimicked in the upholstered side chair.  Even the open weave of the pendants are reminiscent of the lace that would look great hanging over two side tables flanking the loveseat.  Speaking of the sofa, the solid navy color and tailored lines come directly from the trousers.  By adding a chevron and floral pillows, it adds interest to an otherwise ho-hum seating piece and brings the color from the bold chairs over.  These pillows follow the same flow of the multi colored blouse.  Anchoring the room is a jute rug just as the natural heel of the wedges.  Placing three of the textured navy side tables grouped in front of the loveseat makes an instant coffee table.  The texture reminds me of the pattern on the trousers as well.  I fell in love with these “loop” wooden side tables that can be placed long ways or tall ways along either side of the loveseat.  They add that “somethin’ somethin’” to the space, just like that urban, raw, yet pulled together feel that the fashion look has and the coloring is just like the belt.  Finishing it off is the drapery panels.  Although more muted in color, the ethnic pattern rings true to the blouse bringing yet another pattern to the room and bringing it up to the ceiling.
