Fashion and Home Design


Interior Design and Fashion Design are closely related. I've put this photo of an advertisement for Lee Jofa's newest line from Oscar de la Renta (a fashion designer) to show how fabric houses are trying to get consumers to relate fashion to home design.

At the beginning of a new season do you take stock of your wardrobe and see what pieces no longer work and what needs to be replaced? I do. But rarely do people do this same seasonal editing with their homes.

I am certainly not advocating that you completely redecorate every single season, I am only suggesting that you take inventory each season and rotate things in and out of your home to keep your home looking fresh, new, and inventive each season of the year.

Accessories are the easiest to rotate in and out followed by soft goods like pillows and throws. If you have some smaller furnishings (occasional tables or chairs) you can always swap those out once a year to give some fresh perspective.

Your home is a reflection of you and your personality and it should always be changing just as you are!
