I’ve always been fascinated by what Interior Designers wear; if their wardrobe reflects their design style, if it’s trendy or classic, colourful or monochromatic, etc. (even more fascinating to me are those in the design world who don’t seem to have the ability to dress well, yet are able to create the most gorgeous spaces. But I’ll leave that for another post). So today I bring you a comparison between some well known interior designers and the way they style themselves…
First up, girl-next-door Sarah Richardson:
Sarah tends to wear casual, classic items with a bit of a funky touch to them, which definitely reflects her love of vintage inspiration and the use of second-hand finds in her interior design style, though I think her interiors generally tend to be more formal than the way she usually dresses (this picture being from her relaxed cottage interior and therefore the counterpart to her usual jeans attire).
The beautiful and talented Kelly Hoppen:
I think Kelly’s slinky, retro outfit perfectly reflects the sexy, vintage style of her living room design. That hit of yellow in the space mirrors the vibrancy of her dress. And that gorgeous hanging chair is the living room’s chandelier earrings like those peeking out of her wild curls. Kelly definitely likes to add an element of surprise to her often monochromatic interiors and appears to replicate that in her clothing as well.
Fellow Canadian Candice Olsen:
Candice has a way of making a room really captivating, adding layers and using pieces that will see you through years of enjoyment without requiring an update. She dresses similarly, always adding an interesting element and mixing her timeless pieces with something that pops, in this case her top.
The super smily Nate Berkus:
Nate’s personal style preference appears to be a smart-casual look – sports jacket or shirt and tie – quite tailored and classic, yet comfortable. His interiors definitely have a masculine touch with tailored elements and there is often something that makes you smile about them too, so that reflects his personality.
What do you think? Is the interior style of these designers comparable to their taste in clothing? Tell me what you think in the comments section below.
