Inspiration can be found anywhere, but I especially love taking it from fashion illustration. The colors and the drama seem simply perfect for inspiring other types of design -- like my favorite - garden design. I used to adore those old Domino magazone articles about making an outfit into a room and these are another version of the same thing. What is your style? There might be a garden for you....There is a whole collection of styles to choose from (beyond the samples here) -- perhaps you are into the icons of fashion design -- Check out the Coco Chanel Garden
, or the Christian Dior Garden
Want more casual? There is a garden inspired by a beachy casual design as well as a cool hippy chic.
Day wear? How about the Preppy School girl garden and or the Posh Lady inspired garden.
Some of my personal favorites come from evening wear, like the this beautiful red garden, or this spanish blue garden or even more exciting, this garden inspired by this little chartruse party dress.
There is some historical pieces too like the Lucille garden and the Roaring twenties gardens. The moody grey dress looks vintage but the garden is clearly modern.
But my personal dream garden though lies in the over the top inspiration of the theatrical fashionista....because who doesn't need a leopard printed fireplace?
Which is your favorite?
