Fashion at Home

Modern Couple, Jack Spade Fall Cookbook 2014

Jack-Spade-Fall-2014-Lookbook-13As an interior addict, my design fix is not limited to the pages of magazines and bloggers’ home tours. I intently study the homes of movie characters, the occasional nail salon, and in this case, the setting of a Jack Spade lookbook. Fashion and furnishings can sometimes feel like two disparate parts of your shopping list, but this lookbook really aces the intersection of the two. For many of us, we have logged more hours shopping for clothes than our homes so while you’ve developed your sense of personal style in clothing, the design domain can still feel foreign. But it doesn’t have to be. Do you love neutral colors and menswear-inspired separates? Or are you a print mixtress who lives in a quirky color palette? Let your style inform your home purchases.


White pumpkins — If you’re not the jack o’lantern type, then these white washed pumpkins are a quick and easy DIY project waiting to happen. And you can keep them around all throughout the fall season. These ones are actually concrete so you can use them year after year.

Patterned pillows (left and right) — I can honestly say if these pillows were clothes, I’d wear them! Often you find a piece that you love but it is not necessarily your style, so next time you find yourself in a design bind ask yourself the question: would I wear it?

Calendar — This has got to be the most innovative, beautifully designed calendar I have ever seen. A perfect holiday gift for your graphic designer friends, or an excellent opportunity to treat yourself!

Princess daybed — I get that a piece of furniture is a much larger investment than say, a pair of pants, so you don’t want to make purchase decisions based on passing fashion trends. But if you have long harbored an abiding love for relaxed silhouettes and soft linens, then this may be the sofa for you.

Cage lamp — Stick to what’s tried and true when making your big purchases, but when it comes to lighting I like to push the boundaries a little more.

Garment rack — And just to drive my point home that fashion and furniture can be one in the same? Turn your clothes into decor when you display them on a garment rack. Or pull you could always pull a Coveteur and hang an evening gown on your door or keep heels atop your mantel.
