Like a lot of interior designers, we are also fashionistas at heart, and are watching what's coming down the runway this week at New York Fashion Week.
The line between the fashion and shelter worlds is blurred and what you see on the runway often shows up in the home. There are some Fall trends that really translate to interiors. Here are some of our favorites.
Faux Fur is huge for Fall and is also a major trend for interior design. Above, a Chanel model rocks the fur look from head to toe, and for home, a faux fur throw is the perfect accessory, as seen in the family room of a Rinfret client:
Statement necklaces are so hot now. How does a necklace work in a house you ask? Well, it doesn't - but Cindy Rinfret loves to compare fabulous light fixtures to jewelry. Check out this master bedroom that she designed:
Still not convinced...?
Vera Wang's necklace does share an aesthetic with this gorgeous light fixture, right?
Houndstooth is always a go-to pattern for Fall.
This classic print looks just as good wrapped around your neck as it does on your walls.
In this case, the look is cover girl worthy, as this image of Cindy's own library mantel was the cover image of the Holiday 2009 issue of Traditional Home.
Like houndstooth, leather is another Fall Fashion staple that also works great for interiors.
Anyone can do a leather sofa or ottoman but Cindy Rinfret amped up the wow factor for her client, Tommy Hilfiger by upholstering his dining room walls in brown leather.
Now you can shop for your body and your home. What could be more fun than that?
