Bring Fashion Week into your home design scheme
If you’ve been following the fashion creations of the world’s greatest designers, being showcased in New York City over the last few days for Fashion Week, then you’ve probably already realized that some of the concepts that hit the runway for spring/summer 2012 might be better off as design concepts for your home.
To prove that we are not completely crazy for having this thought, check out the following fashions, and their home design counterparts (all home decor images were found via Pinterest). We’re betting you might not rush out to adorn your body with some of these .. umm.. let’s call them interesting outfits.. but the decor alternatives look great!
