Personal style meets home design at Deidre Interiors


HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT WHETHER YOUR WARDROBE AND YOUR HOME HAVE SIMILAR STYLES? YOU MIGHT BE ONTO SOMETHING. TODAY I’M JOINED BY DEIRDRE AND SHANNON, TWO DESIGNERS WHO RECENTLY COLLABORATED ON A PROJECT EXPLORING THIS IDEA. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. DEIRDRE, YOU ARE AN INTERIOR DESIGNER. EXTREMELY TALENTED. WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT SPRINGTIME. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR INTERIOR DESIGNING? DEIRDRE: IT MEANS IT’S A TIME FOR RENEWAL. ALL OF THE CHRISTMAS STUFF IS PUT AWAY. PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO SEE THEIR HOMES DIFFERENTLY. THEY ARE READY TO START TO FEEL FRESH AND FEEL NEW AND BRING MORE COLOR INTO THEIR HOMES. A LOT OF PEOPLE PROBABLY THINK THIS IS MY PERSONAL STYLE AS I DRESS BUT I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT MY PERSONAL STYLE IS FOR MY HOME. YOU ARE COLLABORATING IN A UNIQUE WAY WITH SHANNON. TELL US ABOUT HOW YOU ARE WORKING TOGETHER. YOU ARE ACTUALLY CHILDHOOD FRIENDS. DEIRDRE: SHANNON AND I HAVE KNOWN EACH OTHER SINCE THE FIRST GRADE. OVER THE LAST YEAR I NOTICED HOW MUCH FASHION SHANNON WAS POSTING TO HER INSTAGRAM SO I REACHED OUT AND I SAID WHAT ARE YOU DOING. WE GOT TOGETHER AND STARTED TALKING ABOUT THIS AMAZING CROSSOVER OF INTERIOR DESIGN AND FASHION AND HOW THEY BOTH INFORM EACH OTHER. IF YOU HAVE A GREAT WARDROBE. WHY DON’T YOU EXPLAIN A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS BECAUSE YOU DID THE SKETCH WHICH IS GORGEOUS. KIND OF COLLABORATES WITH THE INTERIOR DESIGN OF THE KITCHEN. SHANNON: EXACTLY. I WAS INSPIRED BY THIS ROOM. THIS KITCHEN THAT DEIRDRE DID. WHAT I’M DRAWN TO FROM IT AND HOW YOU GET A FASHION SENSE FROM IT IS THE NICE CRISP WHITE CREATES A NICE FOUNDATION AND YOU’VE GOT THESE ACCENTS AND BURSTS OF COLOR. IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE SO LITERAL. MY SKETCH IS BLUE. ABOVE IT ARE TWO OTHER FABRIC SWATCHES . JUST A POP OF COLOR AND THAT RINGS SPRING ACCENTS IN AND. YOU CAN BLAME IT UP WITH SOME GOLD ACCENTS AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE KITCHEN WITH JEWELRY OR A SHOE. THIS IS THE FULL PICTURE OF THE KITCHEN. YOU POINTED OUT MY BRACELET AND YOU SAID IF YOU LOVE GOLD ACCENTS YOU SHOULD ADD THAT INTO YOUR KITCHEN. I HAVE NEVER THOUGHT OF THAT. DEIRDRE: PART OF BEING A GOOD DESIGNER IS BEING OBSERVANT. WHEN I NOTICED THAT A CLIENT HAS A GOLD BRACELET ON OR A TORY BURCH BOOK ON THE COFFEE TABLE THOSE ARE CUES TO THE ELEMENTS WE SHOULD BRING INTO THE ROOM. THAT’S WHY WE HAVE GOLD HARDWARE. POPS OF RIGHT BLUE . THE REST OF US, CLEAN AND SIMPLE. IF SOMEONE AT HOME IS WATCHING THIS AND SHE IS SPEAKING RIGHT TO ME I NEED TO REVAMP NOT ONLY MY WARDROBE BUT MY HOME, HOW DOES IT BEGIN? IT STARTS WITH A MEETING I CALL WHAT’S HOT WHAT’S NOT. WE GATHER INSPIRATION IMAGES. I PULL SOME IMAGES THEY MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT. WE GO THROUGH AND WE SAY WE LOVE THIS, WE DON’T LOVE THAT. WE PUT TOGETHER A STYLE PACKAGE FOR THEIR HEALTH. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT INCORPORATING YOUR STYLE THAT YOU WEAR TO WORK OR MAYBE A NIGHT ON THE TOWN IN YOUR HOME. THIS CLIENT WAS VERY INSPIRED BY FASHION. WAS CARRYING IMAGES OF MAGAZINES AND SENDING ME THINGS. IT WAS A LOT OF FUN AND VERY HELPFUL. SHANNON: TEXTURE, INCORPORATING TEXTURE IN BEING ABLE TO DESIGN OUTFITS BASED ON A ROOM OR VICE VERSA IN NATURE. YOU GOT THIS NICE STRUCTURE OF A SOLID COLOR OR WHATNOT. AWESOME THAT YOU ARE COLLABORATING IN HELPING SO MANY PEOPLE. PEOPLE CAN FIND OUT MORE BY GOING TO OUR WEBSITE.
