Design&Fashion | Safari-Sleek Mashup

Over the past few weeks we have been featuring a new blog series called Design&Fashion [sister,sister]. What started as a quick “picframe” project to pass the time, has now become a fun series of interior design and fashion sketch mashups! Check out our past Contempo-Mod and Glam-Rock mashups!!

For our third installment, we introduce:

Safari-Sleek Mashup

This sketch inspired us to take a walk on the wild side!!! There is a simple edginess to this look that creates intrigue and excitement! Like in Interior Design, we love the mixture of masculine and feminine used in this style; perhaps a little Tarzan meets Jane action – with a strong sense of individuality!

Here are some Safari-Sleek interiors that inspired us for this mashup:

We couldn’t call this a safari-sleek design with out the use of ANIMAL PRINT!! We love the | m i x t u r e | of pattern in this space; the stripe armchairs are a great compliment to the zebra print ottoman.

The element of | c r e a t i v i t y | was not overlooked in this bedroom! Although a sophisticated take on a children’s room; the patterns, colors and textures are a prefect combination! They cut the animals out of scrapbook or wallpaper; GENIUS!!

Yummy | b l a c k | walls. Enough said. (…in steps animal print)

Designer Tip | DON’T BE AFRAID OF COLOR AND PATTERN.

Use them | t o g e t h e r | and often!!

IMG_1803

The elements in this room, while very | s i m p l e | they make a major statement. First off, THAT WALL!! Its hard to tell if it is a wallpaper or a tile feature, but either way, we LOVE!!

IMG_1802

Yes, please. Love everything about this. Outdoors | l o u n g e y | platform bed, chevron/stripe curtains (looks like they are reversible, LOVE).

IMG_1801

Owl on Leopard on Zebra | t e x t u r e | Unconventional, yet we still dig it!

IMG_1809

Mixing metal with wood, | e c l e c t i c | with brick, and lace with burlap.

IMG_1810

Natural light for | d a y s |

IMG_1811

Simple elements of nature and safari were added to this | c o z y | bedroom. Loving the canopy drapes, jute rug and subtle animal prints strung throughout!

IMG_1814

The birch forest feature wall is an awesome way to bring the | o u t s i d e | in! The mixture of colors in this bedroom are a perfect combination and a great example of this safari-sleek mashup!

IMG_1816

This bright, vibrant space is not lacking | g r e e n |. Instead, boasts a tonal dance for the visual sences!

IMG_1818

Again, TEXTURE | a n d | ANIMAL PRINT!!

IMG_1820

Better yet….what | d o n t | we love about this room?? The nailhead design alone makes us smile!

IMG_1815

This is our favorite!! The space that we think encompasses where the fashion sketch could have been | i n s p i r e d | from!! From the deep navy sofa to the understated dining chandelier – this does it for us!!

cash advance A Man’s World

Ladies, for the past few weeks we’ve given you a look at the color trends of 2013.  So now it’s time to give the gentlemen in the crowd some attention.  This week we have scrolled through our Sherwin-Williams paint deck and created a few different color palettes that are sure to help any man fix up what hopes to be his “bachelor pad!”

 Here at A.Clore Interiors we know that for most men picking out paint colors is no easy task.  That’s why we have gone ahead and done most of the work for you…free of charge 🙂 Now everyone has a favorite color, so we’ve taken the most common ones and put together some color schemes that you can make your own.  The classic favorites are Blue and Green but we have added a Neutral and Gray palette for those men who aren’t ready to “commit” to such a bold change.  Scroll down to see what we have come up with.

 

Blue Color Palette

Green Color Palette

Neutral Color Palette

Gray Color Palette

Now that the hard part is over, all you have to do is pick up your favorites at the local hardware store and get to work! A good paint job is a fast and easy way to take your “guys apartment” and turn it into a true bachelor’s pad, one that not only you but the ladies will love cash advance!!!
