Dress Your Nest

Are you wanting to decorate a room in your home but don't know where to start? Here's a tip: go to your closet. It is one of the best places to get inspiration for designing a space. Think about it. There is a reason you chose those particular pieces of clothing, pair of shoes, or handbags to dress yourself, whether it be because of their color, pattern, texture, etc. The same concept works for your home. Dress your nest the same way you would dress yourself.

Here's what I mean...

In the example above, both the model's jacket and the bench are structured and made of cognac leather, giving them a very masculine look. And in the second example, the chandelier is reminiscent of the model's hairpiece.

However, when dressing your nest, you don't always have to be so literal. You can also simply use furniture pieces and textiles that have the same feel as your clothes, such as that in the first image. While the model's pink dress is literally shown in the throw pillows, it is also portrayed by the overall femininity of the room.

Clothing and accessories can be interpreted through design in a variety of ways. Let me know if I can help you put together an outfit to dress your nest! An E-Design service is currently in the works (woo! hoo!), and I am dying to get started.
