Off the Wall 19

Meet Fashion’s Best Friend, Interior Design.

Fall is so beautiful in Colorado, and it gently guides us into a new season of fashion. It offers up the chance to change our wardrobe and personal style. Although fashion and interior design go hand-in-hand, the role our own personal style plays in how we design the very space we live in is often overlooked. Our walls can emulate our clothing, as in the case of this styled shoot with some of our favorite local boutiques (Nod & Rose, MAX, Inspyre, Goldyn, Christina’s, Two Sole Sisters). We paired prints and patterns that fit seamlessly with Cover Wallpapers and Flat Vernacular’s hottest trends. Although papering fell out of style a few years ago, it’s back and better than ever.

Fashion and design styles are constantly recycling throughout the decades in surprisingly updated ways (hello there, 1990s). In this feature, captured by Noah Berg, it’s easy to find fun, fall fashion pieces to wear that complement the modern twist in wallpaper design. This fall, don’t be afraid to spice up your wardrobe and your walls—inspired by your own unique style.

Paint, wallpaper, accessories, prints are great ways to incorporate your style, colour and an air of playfulness without committing to a chartreuse sofa that might not transition into another space or home very easily down the road.

I like balance in my design so if you go with a bold printed wallpaper or colour try and balance it out elsewhere with simple furniture lines or neutral colours. After all if you invest in a fabulous wallpaper you want that to shine! But if you want to go with a more subtle look you can layer prints in the same colour family and go with a black and white motif in both the wallpaper and pillows and add a pop of colour with flowers, a rug or another accessory.

Another benefit to wallpaper is that it can replace a need for art. I love art, but if you are looking for affordable design options, wallpaper can be less expensive than high end art.”
