My Design World

a little inspiration from chanel during australian fashion week

Deirdre Brennan - Tuesday, May 08, 2012


As fabulous as many of the designs were during Australian Fashion Week .... and I am thinking Zimmerman and Toni Maticevski who I particularly admired, nothing came close to the sort of detailing that Chanel is famous for.

I love these textures and fabrics and colours !! and just when I thought the beautiful shade of nude was on its way out. I love working with these gorgeous neutral shades for upholstery whether it be wools, flannels, mohair, linen or velvet ... and on whatever style or period of furniture.  

Antiques can be modernized and reinvented by upholstering in neutral textiles.

Natural and neutral tones for textiles and rugs work as a backdrop for the warmth of timber furniture, flooring and even subtle architectural detail.  These interiors being both harmonious and .... inviting to live in.
