7 Interior Design Ideas We've Stolen From Our Favourite Fashion Contacts
As we're constantly turning to fashion influencers for style inspiration, it makes sense that we also look to them for interior design ideas too. Whether you're renting or you've got a mortgage, there are certain tricks that can help make your home feel more stylish, and personal at the same time. To give you some Pinterest ammo and fresh interiors ideas, we looked at some of the coolest and chicest homes of our favourite fashion influencers and editors. From Pandora Sykes to Alex Stedman of The Frugality, these are the accounts we turn to when looking for up-to-date interior looks.
1. Turn Your Bedroom Into a Boudoir
Style Notes: In order to be one of those people who wakes up feeling genuinely refreshed (yep, we're still working on that too), you want a bedroom that is a true haven. Take a tip from Megan Ellaby and turn yours into a real boudoir, whether that's investing in luxurious sheets, finding a gorgeous light fixture or painting your walls a relaxing colour. Insider tip: Soho Home is our go-to for making you feel like you're staying at a 5* hotel every single night.
2. Flowers Make Everything Look Chicer
Style Notes: Where better to find interiors ideas than from one of our favourite stylish French women, Jeanne Damas? The street style star and owner of label Rouje knows how to give her Parisian apartment a touch of rustic charm in the form of dried flowers. Of course, fresh blooms are just as chic.
3. A Liquor Cabinet Is Always a Good Idea
Style Notes: To be a really great hostess, you need a drinks cabinet or bar. Don't just dump a load of booze procured from the offie on top of a coffee table. Instead, you need to find a great place to display what you have on offer, including vintage crystal glasses if possible.
4. Dark Colours Don't Have to Look Gloomy
Style Notes: Much like with fashion, interiors went through a period of minimalism. But it seems we're embracing colour again, and that doesn't mean your home will look small or cramped. This gorgeous teal colour as used by The Frugality proves otherwise.
5. A Great Wardrobe Space Is Key
Style Notes: Want to be excited about getting dressed in the morning? Or just want to get more sleep because you're super organised and don't have to spend ages looking for that one top? You need to sort out your wardrobe storage.
6. Unique Vintage Finds Are the Perfect Way to Inject Personality
7. Artwork is everything
Style Notes: Finally, you can always guarantee to add some personality to your home by putting up pictures. Consider the art you want to display, and make sure it complements the rest of the room. The more, the better.
