8 Styling Ideas to Steal From Fashion Girls
They rule the streets with their signature style and inundate our social feeds with the same creative flair, but there's so much more to their It-girl status than their insane fashion senses. Just like their immaculate outfits, our iconic ingénues have impeccable homes too (maybe she really is born with it?). Since we already revealed the dos and don'ts of It-girl style, it's time we shared their decorating tips too. Don't leave home without them.
Lauren Santo Domingo is the epitome of refined elegance. The contributing editor at Vogue and co-founder of online fashion retailer Moda Operandi has exceptional taste, and her home is just as polished as her personal style. In this Vogue shoot, the socialite proves she has a knack for fusing eclectic pieces and unique decorative accents that shouldn't work (but do). Why? Because Domingo kept them all within the same colour palette. The monochrome hue ties in all the conflicting patterns and shapes for a look that's insanely stylish.
When you're a descendant of one of the world's most famous fashion dynasties, you'd think the pressure would get to you, but Margherita Maccapani Missoni has kept the family legacy alive all in her stylish stride. The Italian brand has certainly influenced the glam successor, as evidenced by her Missoni-packed closet to her eclectic country home. The brand's signature textiles can be seen on reupholstered vintage furniture from the 1920s, adding a modern twist to the vintage aesthetic. This beauty is in the high/low mix of modern pieces with antique furniture and rare curiosities. Dare to fuse them all together, and above all, have fun.
Louise Roe is impossibly cool. She reigns supreme in the style stakes, but this English export has a skill for interior decorating too. Take a peek at her office makeover and see for yourself. But one thing we noticed from the Instagram star's chic L.A. home was her love for gallery walls. She successfully elevates this neutral living space with a Miami Art Basel aesthetic. We're swooning over her conversation-starter Slim Aarons prints in the sitting room. If you need help installing one at home, our simple guide will take you from blank wall to gallery wall in seven simple steps.
Something truly magical happens when life imitates art. This image of Brett Heyman in her New York apartment proves it. Heyman is the epitome of chic. Her eclectic outfit blends perfectly with the diverse dining room; it's a match made in pattern heaven. This impossibly cool home shows fearless can be über-chic and totally fun too. It doesn't hold back, and neither should you. Go all-out. Try something new and be daring; your enhanced mood will thank you for it.
Taylor Tomasi Hill is the queen of street style. The flame-haired former accessories director for Marie Claire magazine and once creative director of Moda Operandi has her finger firmly planted on the fashion industry's pulse. But when she's not sitting front row, Hill delivers just as much design nous at home too. While her entire home is dreamy, her forte clearly lies in the kitchen, where she demonstrates a knack for pairing unique decorative accents among practical kitchen necessities. Well, she is an accessories director after all. The lesson? Keep an eye out for fun pieces at flea markets and antique stores; then mix them together in similar tones for a totally chic eclectic look we all want at home.
We follow her every DIY move on Honestly WTF, and we can't get enough of her stylish edits from art to fashion, but Erica Chan Coffman has a serious eye for the home. The cult blog's editor in chief proved it when she collaborated with One Kings Lane to make over her living room. The stylish mum is all about a laid-back California vibe, breaking up washed-out neutrals with cool texture such as the Japanese indigo-dyed shibori and French grain-sack pillows, and the round driftwood mirror. The interesting surfaces throughout this room are what make it come alive.
Just like her self-titled label, Erin Fetherston infuses her signature feminine vibe into her homes. This minimalistic bedroom in her New York apartment is purposely simple, clean, and white because it "helps clear [her] mind" she told Vogue. With bare walls and sparse styling throughout, Fetherston opted for a long chinoiserie silk screen against the wall to add depth and sentiment. It's a dream.
If we had to pair the word "cool" with a person, Erin Wasson would be our pick. The fashion model–turned–jewellery designer literally oozes style. From her dress sense to her home décor, everything she touches turns to design gold. Walking through her Venice Beach home is akin to touring the coolest flea market in Paris; it's peppered with rare finds and unique one-offs styled in a way only Wasson knows how. She unleashed her inner artist, and we urge you to do the same. Take a page out of her creative portfolio and let your imagination run wild.
