Runway inspired decor: Part I ...

In the midst of Fashion Week in New York, I've begun thinking about runway inspired design in interior decor. The more Spring 2012 shows I see (via media photos), the more I see similarities to some beautifully styled rooms I've stashed in my photo library. So, here are a few of my pairings ...

Fashionistas were shown lots of bright colors on the catwalk that can also translate easily into home decor. Of the spring color trends, coral and orange made the most striking statements. These colors can be dramatic with the addition of black or breezy simply paired with white.

I think every girl has a secret longing for the endless possibilities of pink. Blame it on Barbie, if you must. Pink, in any shade, is thoroughly feminine and playful.

Ethnic inspiration abounds on this season's runway. Rose hues and textural embellishments look fabulous with a Moroccan vibe above.

I love, love the dhurrie-esque duvet and runner on the bed. Their contrast with the soft pink wallcolor and accent pillow is decor pefection. Indian inspiration is also flawlessly translated in the iridescent couture dress.

If it's shiny and luxurious, I am totally sold! Even out on a fire escape, pink and nude colorways are absolutely charming. Inside, these shades create a delicious space for dining.

It's haute pink! Couture color of vibrant fuchsia is an undeniable showstopper. A large dose of confidence must be present to wear this shade.

Clean lines and the season's trendiest color are a recipe for classic elegance on the catwalk and at home.

Lavender can be enthusiastic and flirty, and like the blossoming flower, it can also convey a sense of calm and serenity. Yellow accents give a fresh face to a lovely shade.

I love curating these runway inspired designs, so I think I'll offer you some more in an upcoming post or two. Until then ...
