{Guest Post} Fashion design went interior

People often think that there is a lot of difference between fashion and interior design. They are actually pretty similar, and some of the designs used in fashion can be applied to interior design very easily. That is why popular fashion designers started designing a lot of furniture lately.

Take, for example, Jean-Paul Gaultier or Bruno Basso and Chris Brooke of Basso & Brooke, they have their distinctive styles which they applied to the interior to create something amazing. Gaultier used his well known blue and white sailor stripes to leave his mark on the house of Roche Bobois on their 50th anniversary, while Basso & Brooke collaborated with Turning Leaf, a wine company, and designed a unique drinks cabinet, wine tables and console tables, along with a Bergere Gondola chair, cushions and lampshades, designed in their, one of a kind distinctive style.

In the same way, some interior designers actually design your homes interior in the spirit of your fashion style. Your wardrobe alone says much about you.

There are a lot of different fashion styles, each one different and special in its own way and they all found their place in home decor.

A classical design is never out of style and it looks great on almost everyone. It is a style that stood the test of time and refers to people who like to keep their outfit simple, timeless and business-like, and it is about choosing the one strong dominant color. This style can also be assigned to your interior.

Simple and natural forms dominate the minimalistic style. When refering to the design of your home, rooms tend to be more spacious with minimal furniture and details. Shape, colour and texture are the most important elements of this style and accent is put on sharp geometric shapes.

Vintage style is becoming more and more popular nowadays and more people are turning to the past for inspiration. Every period has its own unique style, but the most popular period today is the mid-century modern.

Bohemian interior design is a style that is a bit out of the norm and is not quite scripted as other designing styles. And just like with your wardrobe, you have more freedom to adjust certain recommendations to meet your own unique style and personality.

Avant-garde style is a story in its own. One should always expect the unexpected since these people like pushing the boundaries. They seek innovative ideas which can bring them closer to extravagant art. They are fans of groundbreaking colours, shapes and oversized objects. Wacky armchairs, oddly shaped lamps, enormous art pieces, crazy swimming pool paint colour, like white, coffee, chamois, or even emerald, are just some of the things you could easily find in one of these homes.

When everything is taken into consideration, the most important thing is to create a functional space, but why shouldn’t we go just one step further? With just a little more effort you could make a beautiful and unique personal resort.

  • I really like the idea of having a non-scripted style in my home. I’ve actually been thinking of doing a bohemian-type style in my home. I’ll definitely have to try and get with an interior decorator who can easily pick up on my vision of how I want my home to look.

  • I love all of those rooms but my favourite is the top one with the blacks and greys. This is such a cool post! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • I’m glad you like the article. 🙂 I’ve always loved playing with fashion and interior design. Matching one’s clothes and home decor has always been a huge inspiration to me. It gives so much space for creativity.

  • I have always liked the vintage look versus the modern when decorating my home. Thank you for the great design ideas!

    Vintage really is getting more and more popular. I think it’s cool to see the styles I wore coming back in style.

  • Those look so great! We always have the hardest time arranging our home. We try to mimic other designs but it never seems to work.

  • this was a very cool post. I think you are right. If you have a space that you are working on and you can put in a little more time and effort to make it beautiful, why wouldn’t you?

  • Love this! Sometimes I find interior design intimidating, but this is a great perspective to use what I’m already passionate about and carry that confidence over!

  • I never thought about how close the two are, but I can definitely see it now! What a great guest post!

  • The vintage look is gorgeous. This post totally makes sense. Without being conscious about it, I’ve used the style on how I dress in my home as well.

  • I love the vintage style but they are all really great. I think a personal oasis sounds wonderful!

  • Very interesting insight through your comparisons of interior design and fashion. It does make total sense because both are about style.

  • This was such an interesting and thought provoking post. It’s funny because the decor of my house totally matches my wardrobe. I guess I really like certain colors, huh?

  • Wendy

    I never thought of it this way but now that I do it makes sense. I have the same laid back style in my clothes as I do with my décor.

  • I love the Bohemian look, even though I can’t really pull it off either in my style or in my home. I tend more toward minimalism in both areas — I guess that’s my Type A personality showing, lol!

  • This totally makes sense to me. I have a very defiinite “look” and after reading this article, I can see how I’ve used it in my home as well.
