How to Give Your Home the Club Monaco Look
Clothing boutiques and big retail chains are taking great care when it comes to the design and decoration of their stores these days. A cohesive interior style enables a brand to share its story and aesthetic with a customer as soon as he or she walks in the door. Club Monaco is one such brand that has developed a store aesthetic that speaks to its chic, style-minded customers. With one-of a kind furniture, lighting, and décor pieces that are handmade and/or sourced from celebrated flea markets in Paris, Morocco, and beyond, each Club Monaco store is entirely bespoke, with furnishings that define it's distinct feeling. Wondering how to get the signature Club Monaco look in your own home?
Keep reading for five ways to achieve the traditional-meets-modern look and shop a few pieces to achieve a similar style.
Oak wood floors set in a herringbone pattern and elaborate moulding details are featured in many of Club Monaco’s stores. To add interest and an appearance of age, wainscoting is also incorporated. Add similar architectural detail to your space by installing wainscoting and statement crown moldings to your walls. Traditional, overdyed rugs and antique marble fireplaces further lay the foundation for a classic, elegant design.
Streamlined tables and modern accessories inject youth and vitality into the retail store’s spaces. Daring pairings like industrial-influenced consoles and sculptural accent furniture give the men’s salons some edge, while the modern-influenced pieces keep the women’s areas from feeling overly sweet and precious. If your tastes lean toward the traditional, keep your design current and chic by incorporating small side tables or tabletop accessories with a more modern edge.
Brass accents are sprinkled throughout Club Monaco stores to inject a sense of luxury and classic glamour. In the men’s sections, patinated brass pieces and details offset out the industrial, less-refined décor elements like exposed light bulbs and metal pipe clothing racks. In the women’s areas, bright brass details feel polished and sophisticated. Add a touch of brass to your space—whether in the form of a classic light fixture, sculptural accessory, or even a chair’s base—to give your home the same polished yet glamorous look.
Bold chandeliers and eye-catching sconces can be found in every Club Monaco store. Not only do these pieces flood the stores with focused light to highlight the clothing, but their sculptural qualities add another layer of visual interest to the design. Use statement light fixtures in your space for the same effect, and don’t be afraid to mix different sconce and chandelier styles in the same vicinity—the unexpected pairings will give your home a layered, collected feel.
Bright and airy drapery and paint colours enable the Club Monaco locations, and especially the women’s sections, to feel airy and sunny, no matter the weather. Light blue and white paint and a light, almost raw finish on the wood floors ensure a fresh, crisp space. Keep your walls, floors, and furniture similarly bright and crisp for the same look but incorporate black accents through furniture, artwork, or textiles to balance the bright hues and keep the overall design refined.
