in the closet

the first step is admitting you have a problem, and we admit, we are powerless over gingham (and obviously a little mad about plaid as well...)
do you think there is a connection between one's wardrobe, and one's decor? well, while there isn't a single bit of gingham or plaid in the atelier (upholstery-wise), we suppose this is a fairly accurate reflection of our personal taste as we love plenty of bold color and pattern, all mixed up with some classic black and white.

how about you? is there a connection between your wardrobe, and your decor? come out of the closet and let us know!

Hmm Possibly. I don't (generally wear a lot of prints. I adore a myriad of designer fabrics, however usually only use the more subdued. I guess I am a classic style woman. Except in my art!

I definitely think their is a relation between the two styles even if they slightly differ. I think someone who is more traditional in with their design tends to be more that way with their clothes, and vice versa. And yes, I do see similarities in my fashion style and my interior design style.

Love checks and plaids. So classic.
I saw a painting on Fifi's blog that looks like you two precious children. Tell them Meow and Arf for me.

I can't pass up a good gingham or plaid either.

There is a lot of black, white and grey going on in my house, and as I was putting away summer clothes and pulling out winter I did notice I seem to have a lot of black sweaters.

Excellent question. For me, I'd say my decorating style is more sophisticated than my wardrobe of jeans, boots & sweaters. Love all of your shirts, you gave a gift idea!!!

Ha ha ha. This is awesome Christian. I posted a photo of my collection of white shirts back in October. There's a huge (and very clear) connection between my closet and my decor. I think my obsession with white entertains many of my friends.


p.s. I have zero gingham in my wardrobe. Zero. But here's the link to my white shirts:

I forgot to mention how much I love a closet with all the same hangers! and wood to boot! love it!

I've pondered this too. But I have a major black ankle boot addiction and can't find its equivalence in my home. Curious.
