A few weeks ago I went Shopping with my fashionista Friend Jamie, and that whole process got me thinking about how Fashion and Home Design are extremely related to one another.
So as I’m trying on endless shirts, jackets, and jeans in the change room I shared with her that Designing a room is much like putting together an outfit. When you put together your outfits in your closet, do you think about how those clothes make you feel? I do. I ‘m sure most of us think about a few things when we dress ourselves in the morning, or in the evening when we go out.
1. Do you want to be comfy and cosy?
2. Do you want to be sophisticated?
3. Sporty? Bringing in your lifestyle into your wardrobe perhaps?
4. Edgy? Daring, trendy, seeking all things brand new and hip at the moment?
I think that there is no right or wrong answer to fashion. What one person decides is the right look for them is completely their decision. You may or may not be into what’s trendy now, but you do have the control to find the look that’s just right for how you want to feel. Don’t feel discouraged if your look and feel is different from the next person.
Inregards to Design, Some people are drawn towards dark spaces, others light and airy spaces. They are all right because they were designed with a feeling in mind… that I hope!
“Designing a room for myself means that I have a great opportunity to create a feeling – not just great design. Beautiful things placed in a space are great, but if that space has no feeling I believe I’ve missed the Mark!”
What sorts of feelings do you want to create in your home?
