Please join us in welcoming Kelly Beall from Design Crush one of our new contributors. We're so excited to have her! Take it away Kelly… Welcome to the latest series, Outfit to Interior! In each post we'll be exploring the intersection of fashion and design, and boy-oh-boy it's a big place the navigate. Each inevitably draws inspiration and influence from the other. So let's take a look at translating this Valentino silk-crepe jumpsuit with modern lines and just the right amount of skin into an interior design project. The elegant silhouette and keyhole back give us plenty to work with. What we're looking for first and foremost in a piece is a modern, sleek, and sexy vibe. Clean lines and metals with just the tiniest hint of surprise. Some interior designers are adamantly against ceiling fans , but I'm of the opinion that so long as it's fresh and fits the space then go for it! I love the feeling of a cool breeze and can't imagine life without them in my home. The Quorum Dragonfly Collection's Nickel Finish Ceiling Fan fits all of those requirements. The streamlined light grey blades offer up a little something different in the looks department, can't you just imagine our Valentino lady lounging about underneath? A pair of Black Linen Cylinder Shade Antique Brass Swing Arm lamps would be a great match for our girl's bedroom or reading nook. The eleven-inch high black linen shades give these classic beauties just the modern unexpected touch we're looking for. I think our gal would place the Glitz Crystal Contemporary Table Lamp somewhere a little unexpected, like on a table at the end of a hallway or on the kitchen countertop. The bright chrome finish and sparkling inlaid crystals would brighten up any dark corner. Throwing an impromptu dinner party is the hallmark of any modern woman, which means a great table with a great light fixture as the focal point. Check out the Possini Euro Pendant with White Frosted Concentric Shades . The frosted inner glass, brushed nickel finish, and white fabric all play together perfectly to create a piece that's both sleek and classic. I'm betting her signature dish is something deceptively simple and delicious, like Chicken Tika Misala or Spaghetti Bolognese. And while she's in the kitchen cooking up such tasty dishes, she's probably doing all of her prep work right under a trio of Atmosphere Possini Euro Pendant Lights . I love the way their modern aluminum finish is "sliced like fruit" to let all of that glorious light shine through, quite the show-stopper! This Contemporary Frameless Round Mirror measures nearly three feet across! If that doesn't make a modern statement, I'm not sure what does. I think it would look at home in our girl's entryway or hanging over the fireplace. And she could always change it up by placing it over the credenza or behind the couch. Endless possibilities, we love that in a piece! Last but not least, our modern woman needs somewhere top perch while entertaining or surfing her favorite shops. A pair of Zuo Modern Wendover Steel Dining Chairs are just the ticket. The sleek silhouette and leaf-like back would be equally at place in the dining room or behind a desk.
