Your Fashion & Interiors Style

There is so much inspiration to be found for home decoration when browsing online.  The problem is, how do you decide what style to go with for your home?  To make the process of beautifying home interiors in a style reflective of who we are and what we want to express, we’ve turned to fashion. Style is such a personal thing. It doesn’t always follow trends (although it can definitely be influenced by it) and it doesn’t always make sense to others. There are many parallels between how one’s sense of fashion can inform choices for interior design. Both are hugely influenced by what you are drawn to in daily life and both take on board the function, mood, colour and a balance of proportion and details. So whether you’re a home decor veteran or someone just starting on an exploration of taste and style, here are our 3 tips on how to draw from your fashion style to truly express yourself at home.

 

1. Think about your lifestyle and personality

Do you prefer to be dressed in a comfortable and relaxed way or do you usually prefer to dress up and be more pulled together? Are you an extrovert – happy to be the centre of attention in a flowing red dress or are you an introvert or somewhere in between? What kind of activities do you enjoy in your leisure time? These are just a few of the questions you can ask yourself to discover more about what fills you up and makes you feel like yourself. Use this information, when thinking about your home decor. The mood of a home can be a direct reflection of your personality and your typical fashion tastes.

2. Your existing wardrobe gives hints to your interior design style

Take a look at your wardrobe. What sorts of colours are more prevalent? Are there lots of florals, geometric patterns or perhaps it’s a monochrome palette with solid, clean lines. Preferences in your clothing can provide a lot of information about where your tastes lie and what you might be more predisposed to in your home decor.

3. Take note of other elements in your wardrobe

Jewellery is another important indicator of style and taste that can be woven into interiors. Do you lean towards silver or are you more of a gold and brass person. These tones can directly translate into finishings in interior design for example light fixtures or door handles. Also not to be overlooked are other accessories such as shoes and handbags. Do you love leather or natural fibres like rattan for your handbags? All of these elements are possibilities for the home- from leather pouffs to rattan and wicker furniture. Fashion broadens your horizon to the multitude of options that exist for the home.

With these tips in mind, explore your style and feel free to draw from fashion and interior design styles interchangeably- this is one of the best parts of working with the two design forms. If you love the colour orange but just can’t bring yourself to wear it.. add orange as a pillow, a throw or an accent wall in your home. Or if you love a bold geometric print, but don’t want to commit to it in your home for the long term.. you can add this print into your wardrobe! The great thing about fashion is that it allows you to indulge in bold tastes in a temporary and transient way that sits very well with changes in your mood and tastes.

As a final note, sometimes a firm fashion style can spark a desire to explore its opposite. Your fashion style might be very clean and minimalistic but you feel drawn to bold colours and lush textures for the home. This is ok too. Go with it! Your home is a very personal and private space. Fashion has always been about encouraging experimentation and going with what feels good.  The same is true for interiors. Have fun and create the perfect space for you!

Hello Autumn

By August 14, 2015 BEHIND THE SCENES
dizaar 2

Judging from the weather recently, we are more than ready to embrace cashmere season once again. Our Autumn collection couldn’t have come sooner! With the unpredictable weather playing havoc with our daily dressing, all we are dreaming about is crisp autumn mornings cocooned in our new cashmere, coffee in hand.

As you may have read in our previous blog post on our Autumn/Winter ’15 collection, we were hugely inspired by the work of photographer Sarah Moon. Her signature photographic style of dream-like images which represent femininity, are free from time and context. It is these timeless emblems of luxury and nostalgia that lends to the designs of the new collection. The tone of the collection is influenced by her use of colour, ranging from a muted palette of blush hues and through to strong teal and dark ash as the season develops.

FW15 Inspirations Les 100 Ciels

As always, cashmere remains at the heart of the new collection. Our 100% cashmere essential range features subtle detailing such as ribbing and drop hems. They are perfect for the change in season and will play a huge part in our autumn wardrobes. They look great paired with our new cropped trouser length or our long line skirts.

Light-weight outer layers will play a key role in dressing for the in-between seasons. They are light enough to wear over a dress for an sophisticated evening look, or over a chunky knit and trousers for a weekend stroll through the park.

Ponchos and capes are making a come-back in the new collection. We’ve styled them over slim line roll necks and cropped trousers and are great way to ease you into the cooler weather. Ailsa highlights our jewel tones and neutrals in our autumn colour palette, with a ribbing detail on the shoulder. Dizar taps into our colour-block trend and is a great way to inject pops of colour into your wardrobe. This piece is super versatile as it can be worn 2 ways, alternating the button detailing from the side to the front.

Our cashmere lounge wear remains as cosy and luxurious as ever, because who doesn’t want to be in head-to-toe cashmere?!

Our Natalia joggers and hoodie Steph are a match made in heaven and can be paired with our cashmere essentials for a relaxed at-home look.

Our favourite places in Copenhagen

We escaped the London hustle and bustle for a long weekend of fashion, culture and food in Copenhagen.

Soon after arriving in Denmark’s capital, we understood completely why it’s renowned to be home to the happiest people on Earth. The Danish way of life is relaxed, content and wholesome, making it one of the most livable cities ever. After touching down, we stumbled across a fairy tale-esque coffee hut called Kafferiet, the makers of ‘Slow Coffee’. The barista was so friendly that we ended up staying there for over an hour listening to her talk about her favourite places in Copenhagen.

For architecture lovers, Grundtvig’s Kirke in the Bispebjerg district is a structural delight and a must to visit. The lofty interior designed by Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint is beautifully serene and peaceful.

We could have spent all day at The Botanical Gardens, roaming the magnificent Palmhouse and the Cactus rooms. A staircase spirals into the roof of the Palmhouse to a viewing platform that wraps around the whole room , from there you can spot rare, exotic plants.
