It's Fashion Week in NYC. Color and change are in the air - we are what we wear. Fashion and interior design are synomous. I learned a long time ago that the home industry bases their design ideas - the furnishings, carpets and wall color - on womens' fashions. Consumers will buy home fashions based on their taste in clothes. This fall trumpets the colors of olive green, muted metallics, camel and gray. Colors I could roll in and wear like a dog rolls in a new smell. Fall is my favorite time of year.
Take a look in your closet - then look at your living space. Are there similarities? Are the colors, textures and patterns in your home the same as what you wear? Does the color and style reflect your personal style? We are a compliation of our life experiences, our outlook shaped by both internal and external influences. The outward expression of our personal style and home design should reflect the culmilation of these life experiences. For these are our "colors" of the face we show to the world.
