Home Decorating Ideas for Fashion Lovers: 9 Secrets to Adding Fashion into Your Decor

Loves clothes and fashion. Like, really love it? So much you want to marry your love of personal style with your home's look in a way that shows off your threads but doesn't make your whole home look like a closet? We've got nine successful and fun examples of incorporating fashion into your home's decor.

1. Line like items together on a surface
Pictured above: One pair of boots on the floor looks like you didn't put them up after you took them off. But a line of textured, earthy leather boots elevated on top of something (like a trunk) and paired with a giant piece of art, and you've got yourself a serious fashion decor statement. Seen in Noah Marion's Warm, Rich Home.

2. Treat a patterned dress like a textile to display by hanging
Can't stand to not see your favorite frock pattern when you're not wearing it? Utilize a gorgeous texture or bold pattern by hanging it against a natural white background: the back of a door. This idea spotted in Isabel & Claire's Globetrotting Apartment.

3. Knot + hang + display soft scarves
Scarves aren't meant for bunching up in the bottom of a drawer only to be seen on cool days. Knot them artfully on small hooks in a row on a wall (maybe even at an interesting height) and let their patterns hang on display to add softness to a room. Spotted in Colleen's Sunny DC Studio.

4. Forget throw pillows; go for hats!
Hats (even sombreros) make perfectly surprising substitutes for throw pillows on beds, sofas and other soft seating spots. Seen in The Adkins' Evolving Townhouse.

5. Necklaces deserve to be displayed
Gorgeous necklaces and other jewelry adornments shouldn't be tucked away to get tangled; they should displayed, creating a repetitive texture anywhere you'd like. Seen in Laura & Ray's Art-Filled Austin Home.
