11 Fashion-Approved Interiors We Love
Just like any great outfit, a well-designed room requires serious thought. It takes a discerning eye to fearlessly mix and match styles, patterns, and colors. These rooms embody what we love about fashion: They’re perfectly put together, they showcase a personal point of view, and they have a sartorial je ne sais quoi that’s both cutting-edge and utterly timeless. Keep scrolling for our favorite fashion-inspired design moments, and learn a few takeaways for your own home.
Statement pieces are just as important in décor as they are in fashion. A killer pair of heels may equate to a beautiful brass console, while a fun, colorful clutch might be akin to a great piece of art. Build up your room like you would a statement outfit.
Just as fashion draws inspiration from pop culture, fashion-inspired interiors often make nods to pop culture, making them unmistakably relevant. We’re loving the edgy pop culture–infused home of Vbeauté’s founder Julie Macklowe.
The home office of fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger is not only plastered in his signature colors, it also features luxe materials directly inspired by fashion. The large fur rug acts as a base for the mix of glossy metallics, rich leather, and soft velvet.
Living underneath a suspended grand piano, and among a sculptural pair of white sneaker–clad plaster legs is not for everyone. It does however make a statement that holds just as true in fashion as it does in décor: Don’t take yourself too seriously, and never be afraid to make a statement.
Imagine a woman dressed from head-to-toe in rich camel tones. The ever-so-chic monochrome trend translates just as well in décor, as proven by the elegant dining room in Jimmy Choo’s founder Tamara Mellon’s Manhattan home.
Fashion is all about expressing individuality in the most unassuming way possible. Think of this room as the little white dress of décor: An effortlessly cool space only needs a few well-curated, bright accessories to look like a million bucks.
A little glam never hurt anyone, and in the case of décor, you might just need a vignette presenting a well–appointed bar cart with beautiful photography as a backdrop. It’s all about quality over quantity.
One thing I constantly admire in street style photography is women’s fearlessness when it comes to patterns and color. If they can pull it off in a single outfit, it can be achieved in a room. Consider bright art and bold accents, especially in an all-white room.
Fashion designer Lisa Perry’s home keeps a restrained palette with just a few pops of yellow and pink tones. Its strongest suit, though, is unquestionably the proportions of the furniture within the room: deep-white sofas anchor the space on a glossy black floor, allowing accent pieces to shine.
Sometimes, less really is more. That holds true in Eva Chen’s former Lucky office, where a trio of minimalist design pieces—a Beni Ourain rug, Amici metal bench and minimalist artwork—serves as the perfect backdrop to fashion collectibles: must-read coffee tables books, statement shoes, and a handbag.
Denmark’s The Apartment has made waves, both on the décor and fashion front in recent years. Unsurprisingly, its curated approach to a décor showroom has appealed to fashion bloggers everywhere. The space showcases midcentury Scandinavian pieces alongside boho Moroccan rugs and dramatic antique Murano glass chandeliers. The pieces were brought together in a soft feminine palette, proving that with a strong point of view, you can mix and match almost anything.
