Runway to Room: Valentino

I love translating fashion from the runway into interior decor- it really stretches my design muscles and allows me to think outside the box. When I saw this Valentino look I was SO drawn to the unexpected color combo! This look isn’t exactly one I’d rock to go to a meeting, but I adore the unique mix of light blue, merlot and leopard with gold and black accents. I wanted to try to replicate this interesting combination in a living room….

THE ROOM:

I typically don’t use the color cranberry/merlot in homes, it always feels so dated to me, but in this application of a velvet sofa against a grey blue wall anchored by a leopard wool carpet I think it works!  It’s a rich, luxe space that has a few statements and combines modern and traditional items. I never would have thought to try to put these colors together in a space, proving that looking to the runway can help your creativity when decorating!
