Design Under the Influence: Fashion Designers at Home & Work

Diane von Furstenberg

Hello, it's Erika from small shop! With the wrapping up of the Spring 2013 RTW fashion shows, for this month's "Design Under the Influence" I thought it would be fun to take a look at five designer's homes, and how their personal styles are reflected in their collections. I find it really interesting how a designer's aesthetic can translate from decor to fashion, and vice versa. They definitely each have their own unique look!

Does your home reflect your wardrobe?

Fabulous! They are so similar...you can see the designer's general aesthetic throughout.

Oooh I love DVF & Trina Turks... But all of the designer's homes really do reflect their designs. I think my home definitely reflects my wardrobe.. starting with the fact I can't get away from shades of blue in my closet or my home.

Aggghhhhh Erika you chose all my fave designer's homes! My home is almost purely gray and minimalist and you walk in my closet and it is like a bag of skittles! I always thought jewel tones looked best on me but as I get older I am trying to pare my closet down as well - just black, white, gray, and a few pops color - like the art in my house against the classic furniture.

This is amazing! I loved seeing how their homes are a mirror of their style and work, I guess that I would wear some of the styles I see around my house, at least the colors and patterns, in the end design is design in any area, right?

Erika it is amazing isn't it? Designers aesthetics transfer to decor and art and on and on!

so interesting. They really do mirror their styles. I don't think my own reflects my interiors as closely. Something to think about...
