These kinds of rooms are really popular, and many of you wanted to know if this whole feeling or sensibility can be conveyed in a wardrobe.
What can we take from this photo and those of similar rooms that will help us make informed choices about what to add to our neutral wardrobe? Words that I immediately identified included wood, bone, beige, ivory, ethnic and Native America prints, warm textures, tone-on-tone layering.
Starting with this base wardrobe:
Three garments that aren’t a really wild stretch, but that start expressing your taste:
Lots of easy ways to wear these…
Add in some accessories:
These work beautifully with your wardrobe:
Your shopping for jewelry can easily be focused on including bone (naturally shed, nobody gets hurt!), wood, and textured gold.
I enjoy your new take on how to dress taking inspiration from interior design.
I agree. I always wondered how to choose my absolutels favourite painting, when I like soooo many. For some reason, these interiors get closer on one's inner style. And I think this is mine. I'm wearing these colours today!
Love the Architectural Digest approach to closet style!
You are a genious !!!!!
This is so much fun! Maybe my favorite series so far!
My favorite yet! I'd just add a pair of brown leather boots and call it good!

Headed to my closet right now to see how close I can come to this! Lovely and cozy
I love that new font for your website's name. It's very chic!

Love this! I live in the mountains at Lake Tahoe. When you live in a resort it's tempting to dress in your local style all the time. However, one doesn't always want to dress like one is on vacation. For balance, I try to mix rustic mountain clothes with what the rest of the world is wearing. You've done a great job of illustrating that here. Otherwise, it's tempting to spend your life in Nordic knits, Patagonia fleece, hiking shorts and swim suits!
I love this and bookmarked it for future reference. It actually reflects many of my basics, but I spice it up with colorful scarves and leopard prints. I could see swapping the sweater for one that includes colors like indigo and coral.
I can easily this the woman wearing these stylish clothes going home to this room.
Aside from the TB skirt, perhaps, I find both the room and the clothes lack a snap and verve, especially the third panel. What I call the upscale mall look. I admit some women will wear and look good in it, but for my eye it's not smart.

I love the images on the blog lifeissimplewhenyoulivesimply.tumblr.com which feature a lot of this vibe – when there are fashion images, they usually have this kind of effortless, casual, floppy hair feeling, which is really what French women dress like these days (unlike many books would have us think!)…

And I would have to say, modern chalet style would definitely include grey (a big, drapy, cosy cardigan, maybe, instead of that hooded one?) and just a touch of red… :)
