Your Home’s Style Inspiration Is Waiting Where You Least Expect It

Sometimes our never-ending quest to give our homes a personal style can be a little overwhelming. In those moments, the best thing we can do is to take a breath and remind ourselves that all of us already have a personal style; we may just need some help identifying it. A good place to start is one you’re probably overlooking: your closet.

Our wardrobes are the results of years of making choices about colors, patterns, and textures. And guess what the basics of home design are? Color, pattern, and texture! Finding a holistic style that flows from your closet to your living space simply starts with your favorite wardrobe staples. It’s almost like they’re in conversation with your most-loved home items. Your go-to silk scarf is like the jute rug that pulls together your dining room, and your statement necklaces are like the clashing patterned pillows that somehow work together. Your closet informs your home and vice versa.

Take the female-founded NYC brand Terez as an example. The fashion startup makes active-inspired styles for the modern woman that are the perfect design resource for making your home just as personal as your wardrobe. Here are three design styles evoked by their bold spirit.

The Nature Lover

Take inspiration from the bold Canopy Haze High Rise Foil Leggings and Canopy Haze Foil Reversible Bra (both pictured up top) to help your space get in touch with its verdant side. Woven baskets and chairs paired with green accents (think banana-leaf patterned pillows and monstera plants) give your home the wild, nature-loving style you already love.

The Risk Taker

If you like your look to be fearless and commanding, there’s a good chance you’ll like living in a home that celebrates maximalism. Coupling mixed and matched patterns with rich fabrics is a great design hack for bringing the drama. Pair the Terez Electric Cheetah Jumpsuit with geometric patterns and plush jewel tones for a striking look that’s just as eye-catching as your wardrobe.

The Retro Enthusiast

Terez Glitter Checker Joggers and Cuff Hoodie have a little bit of ’70s flair that recall our parents’ retro interiors. Choose pieces that borrow the best of older styles, like the terrazzo that was so popular in the age of Art Deco or the curvy lines that are so ’60s. And no one ever said all of a room’s (or wardrobe’s) pieces have to be of the same era — a little cross-generational conversation can create a big look.
