This week we’re kicking things off with a style double whammy: fashion + decor. Boom! I hope I’ve woken you up now.
And even better, we’re doing it 10 times over as part of the monthly #Oliohop, where 10 bloggers share their design perspective. This month’s theme, Fashion + Decor, was right up my alley so obviously I jumped right on board. Finding my inspiration was also a no brainer: the Celine fall collection is informing all of my style decisions this season.
From the strong color palette to the focus on geometric patterns, oversized shapes, and lovely bursts of white (yes, after Labor Day!) - every piece in the collection had me at hello. With my well-documented affliction for coats, this Celine look has left me particularly smitten:
The question is how to turn the ensemble from the sartorial to the domestic. I decided to zero in on three things: the color blocking, the punchy hues and the metallic accents (you have no idea how badly I want those gold wedges!).
I’m calling it my Celine-Chic living room. Whatta think?!
When selecting pieces for this imaginary space, the coat was the influence for my anchor furniture. I’ve always been an advocate of selecting solid colors for major pieces. You know what I call a print on a couch? Regrettable. In this case, I went with a white couch in an homage to Celine’s use of the color throughout the collection. I’ve countered that with an all-black buffet. A black structural chair over a graphic rug continues to pick up on Celine’s color blocking trend.
The accent colors of pink, orange and bronzey-gold come into play via the room’s accessories – throw pillows, a side table or perhaps a Moroccan pouf would provide the bits of brightness that we need. My coveted wedges would show up under the guise of metallic end tables or a bronze- infused pendant chandelier.
I think this space would read just like Celine; urban, confident, strong. Who doesn’t want her closet or her home to make her feel like that! One one question remains: when are you going to start shopping?!
I so enjoyed the challenge of the #Oliohop - I have to thank the entire Olioboard team for inviting me to join in the fun. Now be sure to hop on over to the rest of today’s posts to see the designers’ inspiration. Both your closets and your homes will thank you!
