Trend Spotting | Safari Chic

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

Fashion has been the biggest influence on my designing style for as far back as I can remember. Flipping through the latest editorials from Vogue and Elle will most certainly yield color combinations to inspire entire projects, even down to the littlest details. So it should be no surprise that often times staring at much desired interiors will also influence my outfit for the day. 

Case in point...although spring is in the air with colors alive and well, I've been drawn to dark and moody spaces lately, really the ideal escape from all the hustle and bustle that is my suburban nightmare at times.

Sometimes I simply wanna lay low in the most sumptuous of cavern-like spaces, gorgeous materials enveloping my every move, hi-design furniture and hi-contrast finishes help to make my grotto feel like a mini-safari escape. Except that I'm simply enjoying the adventure from the comfort of my own home. And even if I can't swing that, at least I'll look the part.

Eyes akimbo never know where inspiration will strike!
