Pattern Play: Design From My Wardrobe to Your Foyer

October 15, 2013

As a continuation to my Pattern Play: Design from your Wardrobe segments, I decided to pull from my own closet.  Please excuse the pale legs as I have not been diligent about applying my self-tanner since cooler weather has arrived.  As I am designing a foyer in real life, I decided to pull items for that front entrance to the home pulling inspiration from my outfit.  I enjoy the mix of the global feel along with the more preppy stripe all tied together with some blingy accessories.



A creamy wall and coral console table come directly from my Gap knit top, keeping a traditional style.  This jute rug, of which I am currently obsessing over, mimics the tan and black textured ikat pattern from my skirt on got on clearance at JC Penney, injecting that global vibe.  Soft yellow vases delicately hug each other similar to the crisscross of the stacked wood heels I scored at TJ Maxx, adding just a touch of another color to the mix.  Sparkle is introduced through the lighting similar to how my Banana Republic (found at a consignment shop) statement necklace does.  That ever so lovely lotus mirror that would hang over the console reflects the vintage floral 60’s brooch from my mother’s jewelry box of which I am using to cinch in the waist of the boxy sweater. (A tip I picked up from Nicole at The Wardrobe Code)

By the way, I did pick up the clutch I mentioned that I just HAD to have here on the “LOFT Design from your Wardrobe” post and I do not regret doing so.


Hope you enjoy!
