since i failed to make my (normally scheduled) fashion post yesterday, i decided to roll fashion and home into one post today. this little detour actually works for the best since there was much overlap between fashion and home design in 2011. (i am sure such is the case in any given year.) below are some of the ways i was seeing the two influencing each other:
black+gold image source: jenna lyon's master bathroom via urban grace interiors / oh joy! wallpaper for hygge & west / alexander mcqueen via fgr / jewelry mine / school house electric
stripe image source: design*sponge / pile of stripe shirts mine / wingback with stripes school house electric
black and gold was wildly popular this year both in fashion (accessories and clothing) and interiors. well, black and anything, really (gold, brass, natural wood...). i'm pretty sure jenna lyon's master bathroom started the whole thing. am i wrong?
stripes, stripes, glorious stripes! this pattern was everywhere - bedding, pillows, rugs, drapes, upholstery, painted stripe walls...and, most of all, the ubiquitous tee shirt. can one have too many stripe shirts? is an intervention needed here?
enchanting and magical sparkles. the texture instantly makes you feel feminine and celebratory. like stripes, i saw sparkles everywhere, but my favorite form had to be the nails...sparkley, pretty nails.
of course, there were other fashion and home overlaps - tribal/ethnic, tomboy/masculine, graphic - but, i'll stop while i'm ahead. what other fashion/home trends did you notice in 2011?
ok, everyone, i hope you're all having a great week. i will be back on friday where we can all discuss our resolution/goals/hopes (whatever you like to call them) for 2012. let's get crackin'.
