As an interior designer, I am constantly on the hunt for inspiration and there is no limit to where I find it. A love of travel, fine art, music, and a â€œmildâ€ obsession with fashion, all inform my designs. My approach centers on starting with an inspirational object and building a design from there. Here, Iâ€™m going to walk you through that process using this exquisite cobalt blue dress as my staring point.
Considering the delicately tailored, curvilinear shape of this dress, I searched for items with clean lines, feminine details, and structured elegance. But the real show-stopper is its bold color, which can easily be achieved by infusing pops of jewel-tones in a space. The end result is a room that boasts classic elements and a colorful flair.
