The magic of the principles of design – balance, proportion, rhythm, emphasis and unity – is that they’re universally applied whether the subject is art, interiors, fashion, etc.. Domino magazine used to have a feature based on this exact concept, where they would create a room inspired by a fashionable ensemble. I dearly miss Domino magazine… that “special” publication they did a few months back did nothing to satiate my desires for new material from the shelter/lifestyle mag – it was simply a republication of old articles, and I’ve kept all my back issues so it was nothing exciting for me. Anyway, I’m off topic. Let’s switch it up and use rooms first to inspire our everyday dressing. Here’s a take on it, why not create your own?
I love the collected antiquities of this home, belonging to Greek collector Alketas Pazis. The dark, moody, masculine tone is comfortable and inviting, and I love the range of color and materials – the look of achieved with time is well relayed. The end result is decidedly feminine, with layers of variation unified in saturation, with a textural balance of soft fabrics, cold metals, cut crystal, sumptuous leathers, and an emphasis on masculine influence.
