Styling Idea # 294 Go KooKoo for Kikki

INSPIRATION FOR THIS POST

I am sorry to be a copy blogger today however when I read on The Design Files that it was Kikki K’s 10th birthday I was so proud. Retail and design in this country are all hard concepts to get off the ground but staying alive for like TEN YEARS is really something else altogether. We are all aware of the “buy factor” of these amazing products- today in celebration I ask you to think about styling factor. Be inspired to be organised and enjoy the structure lines and clean palettes.

Be sure to head over the The Design Files to have a read about the lady behind the success!

Styling Idea # ?? “Why be a stylist?”

INSPIRATION FOR THIS POST – PS this is not a normal post- it deviates from format…for good reason.

On Saturday night I watched A Single Man and was completely mesmerized. Following the movie (in fact during it) I spent ages working out how I could instantly change my wardrobe and house. You kinda want to chuck out everything you own, buy an amazing white shirt, drink expensive gin and use black eyeliner in areas of the eyelid that have been abandoned for decades (perhaps for good reason).

Following that I opened my  (FREE- YAY) Russh magazine. That was it. My mind went off into “creation” land of amazing and wonderful possibilities. In this land I can style with any products I want without being told no from suppliers (shame on you Living Edge) I have studios and locations and products and textiles designers and photographers and we sit around and create spaces that are so damn sexy you will feel like this or this or actually even this just by being in them. In my mind the art of fashion and the personal expression of interiors are not separate- there is no interior styling and fashion styling – there is only inspiration.

The wonderful, dense, grounding feeling of witnessing beauty.

This is the stuff of stylist and photographers wet dreams….this is why I am in this game and this is why I think everyone should be inspired to create a space around them that is beautiful and personal. Dress the way you want, live the way you want.

This post is not about a styling idea but about the concept of grand gestures and big dreams…..be passionate, be memorable and come home to an entrance that looks like this.

Thanks to Will for letting me use the incredible shot.
