Although I'm fascinated by beautiful spaces, home is not a place without a face to bring it to life. Clothing, too, needs someone to animate it. Put the two together and you get Closet Visit, Jeana Sohn's unique peek into the closets of some of Los Angeles' most intriguing women. More than just a look at their eclectic wardrobes, however, Closet Visit sets the women in their spaces, allowing you to see how style vibrates from clothing to decor.
Bo Carney of Mohawk General Store: the store's curated eye is reflected in Bo's carefully chosen, well cut clothes
Jesse Kamm, clothing designer: Jesse's spare clean look is echoed in her home and clothes.
Amanda Marsalis, photographer: Is it so unusual that Amanda's home contains bright pops of color?
Karoline Maskiewicz, designer: Karoline's warm home fits with her cozy clothing
Helen Johnannesen, Beverage director at restaurants Animal and Son of A Gun: Helen's cheeky casual vaguely retro style finds its expression in her home. Love that brocade headboard!
Clothing, because it is less of a commitment, is often a good place to start if you're stymied by interior design woes. Here you'll find the colors you like, the periods that resonate for you and whether you prefer a casual look or something with a touch more formality. You can even use the schematic of an outfit to help you decorate a room. Taking the example of a man's suit, the upholstery would be the suit fabric, the wall color might be the shirt, socks would give you a clue to patterns, while accessories such as watch, shoes, and a tie would steer you towards metallics, leather color and pillows.
