By now, you’ve probably caught on to my
interest in obsession with this whole fashion meets interiors thing. Not only is it a core concept of Our Style Stories, but it’s also something I’ve been secretly harboring a fascination with for years! Considering the above, you can imagine my delight when I came across Christine’s scarf over lamp trick. What a clever use of a fashion accessory for home decor! It was while editing her style story post that it occurred to me just how brilliant this specific decorating tactic really is. Think about… scarves on lamps, earrings as magnets, neckties for drapery pulls. Heck, even clothes hangers turned plant hangers! I could go on but you get the idea. There are endless possibilities.
So, I’m curious… Is this a do or don’t for you? And, if a “do”, how exactly would you decorate your home with fashion items? Any clever ideas out there that I haven’t mentioned yet? I’m ready to make my house an outfit and dress it!!
As a quick fix, though, I tied this black and white checkered scarf (shown above) around one of my living room lamps. Everything was good until I wanted to wear the scarf! Give and take, my friends. Give and take.
