Pst…Fashion and Interior Design are living together!

Interior design is the roommate that borrows shamelessly from the cool roommate's closet. At first she borrows a scarf and turns it into a throw pillow and the next thing you know, she's gone reverse von Trapp Family Singers on you and her clothes are now drapery panels. If you love to wear a certain color or style, it is likely that you will want to be surrounded by the same style in your house. I often tell clients to look to their closet for their home color palette inspiration. If your closet is on the drab side, however, giving a nod to fashion magazines can be very inspiring. Here are some great spring fashion trends and their interior counterparts. And watch out for your shoes.
