Parisian Perfect

Going to Paris was one of the most inspirational places I have been to. Not only for interior design and fashion but also my way of life. Paris has this very subtle sophistication to it, it makes you want to live you life in a simplistic classy way. People watching from a small bakery over a cup of espresso was one of the greatest experiences, everyone just oozed this super fashionable, confident life, and it was refreshing. It was an amazing feeling to be inspired on not only a visual level but also on a philosophical level as well.  Nothing was overdone; every café had this clean lined, simplistic look with exposed wood beans and subway tiles, and it seemed that everyone was wearing black, but each silhouette was different from the next, it was all so cohesive. Take a look below at some of my favorite Parisian influences for fashion and home. 

 

Menswear Inspired Interiors

I am constantly trying to pull inspiration from fashion for different interior design projects. And then the other day I was flipping through a magazine and came across this amazing ad from Tom Ford advertising menswear, and that’s when it hit me, I usually only use women’s fashion as an outlet for inspiration when I should be using both men and women. There are many different color combinations and layering techniques that are never really seen with women’s fashion, so it’s important to look at both men and women’s fashion. Take a look below to see how you can translate men’s fashion into your next room.
