The Fashion Collaborative

I'm launching a new post series... The Fashion Collaborative.

This is often how I work when I'm beginning a new project - I pull out an image that appeals (often a fashion photograph) and build an interior scheme around it.  It's one of the most creative ways I know to continually come up with fresh and inspiring interiors, not to mention a seriously fun exercise to undertake.  By looking at the various colour combinations and compositions, I can develop my own take on a particular palette.

Today's scheme is courtesy of the Louis Vuitton Cruise Ad Campaign

The Images:




The Interior Scheme:




Carpet: Belgian Light Heather Sisal (Natural Floorcoverings Centres)
Paint (L-R): Stowe White, White Watsonia, Bogart (Dulux Paints)
Laminates (L-R): Malt, Mountain Pepper, Tulip Spruce, Cinnamon Spruce (Polytec)
Fabrics (L-R): 7826 Pewter (Harlequin), 1006 Sophia (Harlequin), 6606 Karelian 418 Glacier (Mokum Textiles), Dandelion Clocks Chaffinch (Sanderson), Husk Driftwood (Warwick Fabrics)

Hi Ang, I think you've come up with such a fabulous idea. As you say it challenges you to come up with fresh and exciting ideas, and then you've listed all the ingredients to your interior scheme so as a reader I find it really useful. I love that Dandelion Clocks fabric. It's one of my favourites.

Hi Angela,

I think this is a fabulous approach for developing an interior color scheme. The pictures from the campaign that you chose are light and strong at the same time and the fabrics you picked really resemble that. Love it, thanks for sharing...

I want to lie down in your color scheme. All the muted natural colors and textures are so lovely. I love the new series, too! What a fun idea.
