How to Use Fashion as Art in the Bedroom

Fashion and interior design go hand in hand. Both worlds overlap more than we know or think. As a designer, I am always looking to the fashion world for ideas on fabrics, colors and patterns. Color palettes are important, and there is no better way to view a color pattern than in a clothing ensemble. So if fashion is that important, why not use it as a form of décor?

I have a few dresses in my closet that I am super proud of. Displaying one in a bedroom immediately takes it from a normal dress to a beautiful art piece. You can actually draw out colors in your space with the colors in a clothing item.

Another great clothing piece to display is a hat. Everyone has simple hooks lying around. Use them in your bedroom to display a hat or a collection of hats. No need for an art piece!

Some of us live in spaces that don’t have a variety of closet space. Embrace it and use clothing racks that are out on the main floor. If you color coordinate or even just display your best pieces, you’ll create a magical room.

Shoes can be a fun tool when accessorizing any room. You’ll have to be picky and not display an old pair of tennies. Instead, lay out a fabulous pair of stilettos or high heels and call it good. Either go bling-y or classic, whatever mood you are feeling.

What do you think of this trend? Would you use fashion as art in your home?
