Dressing your body and decorating your home are two ways to express your personal style, so it makes total sense that these two forms of style would have lots of similarities for any given person. The way I dress is girly to the extreme: I love light colors, flowy fabrics, ruffles, lace, crochet, and lots and lots of layering. Have you seen my bedroom? Same thing goes.
I absolutely love the idea of incorporating my own clothing into the décor of my bedroom. The two styles mesh so well together, it just makes sense! Plus, I love the way my clothes look. Why would I want to hide them away in a closet when they’re not being used?
Last winter I had some of my favorite thigh highs displayed on my wall as seen above. It ended up being one of my favorite spots in my bedroom – I just couldn’t look away!
Here are some ways I’d love to incorporate clothing into my home décor!
Clothing rack: I love the idea of just having a rack of clothing like this in my bedroom, outside of my closet. It’d be so nice to look at everything out in the open this way — it’d totally help me decide what to wear in the morning!
Tree branch clothing rack: This takes the clothes rack idea to the next level! For years I’ve been itching to hang a birch tree branch from my ceiling and use it to display all of my favorite wardrobe pieces. It’s definitely one of the top items on my long, long list of decorating ideas!
Window arrangement: I love how the light shines through the sheer fabric, making each piece look extra dreamy!
Bedside clothes: From the home of our very own Creative Director! I love the way these beautiful slips match her bedding – and they’re hung in the line of natural light, so it’s diffused through them as if they were gorgeous curtains!
One single dress: It’s almost like this dress is just waiting to be worn – and maybe it is! I’d love to hang one article of clothing and change it every day, even if I didn’t end up wearing it.
I’m borderline obsessed with using clothing as home decor — would you do it?
