Runway to Room: Incorporating Fashion At Home

Runway to Room: Incorporating Pattern |
(Ph. courtesy of; Genevieve Garruppo/Lonny)
There are plenty of ways to incorporate fashion in a space, from the literal (a glass-doored closet that puts your best-looking clothes on display) to the abstract (think Hermès boxes as art). But even if you're the most design-savvy trend spotter, blending fashion into your home in a way that feels authentic—not contrived—is a feat for the aesthetically challenged. Or is it?

Take a look at the runway-to-room pairing above. In a bathroom in her Sag Harbor summer house, interior designer Michelle Smith subtly yet effectively channels the graphic print of a fur-topped gown by Carolina Herrera with a punchy red, white, and blue vessel by Astier de Villatte. We love the contrast with the gray walls and brass hardware, but what we like best: it's easy, (relatively) affordable, and incredibly simple to switch out depending on your mood—and the trends. How do you incorporate fashion in your home? Let us know @Lonnymag.
