If The Lampshade Fits...
It's a known fact that there are two ways that people of style spend their money: Those who put in on their backs, or those who spend it on their homes. It's a rare and wonderful thing when you can afford to do both.
If you can have it both ways, check out fashion designer Mary Katrantzou, who describes her work as, "Surreal feats of imagination, engineered around the female figure and realized with hyper-real clarity,"
So if the lampshade fits, wear it!
It may be a bit over-the-top. Helena Bohnam Carter and Vivenne Westwood would rock this. And I would love to try!
Do you remember interior designer Laurence Llewelyn Bowen from the old decorating BBC TV series Changing Rooms? Remember when he wore a floral print chintz suit? Talk about the drapes matching the carpet!
My friend, the interior designer Michael Pelkey once tricked out the interior of his Jeep with designer fabric on the car seats, and brush fringe trimmed pillows tossed in the cargo section in the back, and fancy carpet on the floorboards. It's a bit twee, but great fun and I love it!!!
