Dress Your Nest: The Simple Life

This post is part of a new series that combines two of my favorite things ever, fashion and interiors. Fun fact: I love them both so much (and just great design in general) that I couldn't decide which one to major in during college and ended up getting a separate degree in each. So this new series is kind of an ode to the knowledge gained from my very expensive indecision. (So, see, it did have a purpose, mom and dad. ;) ) Does anyone remember that show Dress my Nest with Thom Filicia from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy? Thom would rock my world by taking a girl's favorite outfit and then turning it into a beautiful room where the chandelier would represent her favorite dangling earrings, and so on and so forth. I LOVED that show. I wish there were new episodes for me to watch over breakfast every single day of my life.

Another big inspiration for his series are the This or That posts on one of my favorite blogs, Elements of Style. They also combine fashion and interiors, showing the design similarities and current trends.

So I wanted to steal borrow from both ideas and bring them together into my own version of the fashion/interior fusion.

For the first installment I'm focusing on minimalism, which has reemerged in the past few years and become a major movement in all areas of design. This is basically a warm welcome into my dream post...
