Designing From My Closet

Designing from my Closet | An Ann Taylor Skirt and HomeGoods Art

Earlier this week I posted on my Instagram about letting your wardrobe be a clue into your interior design style.  I know I have been on a little rampage about finding your personal style lately, and I am only because I think it is important.

I have to say that I follow many (that might be an understatement) fashion blogs and they are showing off their latest finds and deals.  Fashion is one of my loves as it was my major in college prior to making the switch to interiors.  One thing I have noticed is that most people are more willing to take chances on their clothes than they are on their interiors.  And I can see their point of view, an article of clothing is much less expensive than say a piece of furniture.  It is also less of a commitment.

When I made the decision to go bold with color and pattern in my living room, I have had no regrets.  The way that room makes me feel is priceless.  It is a true reflection of my personality.  One of the best things to hear from guests is how happy and fun my home is.

An Ann Taylor striped skirt in bright pink with splashes of orange, purple, and lime I recently picked up secondhand is almost a dead ringer for the HomeGoods chevron art I have hanging in my entry that have essentially the same colors.  I love the watercolor look to both and it was such an unintentional thing.  It goes to show how much I love the look.  Paired with some basics and neutrals, both skirt and art give a fun look that matches my personality.

Take a look in your closet, it might give you a better idea of what you should be bringing into your home.  Why give your wardrobe all the attention?
