From the Runway To Your Living Room
Posted May 2nd, 2012 | by The Update
Fashion designers are on the cutting edge of today’s trends, so it makes sense that they’d know how to dress up a room as well! Check out how these fashion designers re-did rooms in super-luxe styles inspired by some of their own clothing designs:
Here are a few of our favorite’s as seen on Elle Decor:
Versace (pictured above)
Though not everyone has the confidence to wear hyper-colorful, pattern-packed Versace couture, the brand’s bold home furnishings are ideal for accessorizing an otherwise neutral room. versace.com

Kate Spade New York’s latest collaboration with Florence Broadhurst (featured in the January/February issue of ELLE DECOR) extends from feminine cocktail dresses and sneakers to wallpaper and tabletop. katespade.com
Donna Karan will be forever known for her seven easy pieces—and the hundreds of pieces of womenswear that followed in the past 25 years. But her home collection, with a chic palette of neutrals and a mix of textures, is just as memorable. donnakaran.com

Trina Turk’s bright hues and punchy patterns make her clothes and accessories poolside staples everywhere from Palm Springs to East Hampton. Translating those well-loved prints to the home was a natural expansion for designer, whose first experiment was creating outdoor fabrics for her own home, seen in the July/August 2007 issue of ELLE DECOR. trinaturk.com
Since Marchesa’s launch in 2004, the brand’s dramatic gowns have been seen on almost every actress, on almost every red carpet (most recently: Sandra Bullock at the 2012 Oscars.) Two years ago, they expanded to tabletop with a Lenox collection, where their motifs make for glamorous dinnerware and glassware. On neimanmarcus.com.
