Sheer excellence filled the air last Thursday evening on the 3rd floor of Bloomingdales Orlando in the Mall at Millenia where fashion and interior design made a collision. The champagne was flowing and the DJ had the beats pumping! Guests and shoppers also enjoyed light hors d’oeuvres while viewing the “She Lives Here” vignettes styled by A.Clore Interiors. The Bloomingdales team challenged the firm to translate this seasons hottest fashion trends into home decor by giving them 6 very different looks to create a backdrop for the model as if she lived there…..
The trending tropics look was inspired by the major influence of the tropical and beachy prints that snuck on the runway this season. A Ted Baker jumpsuit started this Bahamian bedroom and rattan bed frame set the stage! To make sure the model fit in her space, Amber selected neutral bedding with fun pops of color in the accent pillows. Designer Tip: Like the stylists did with the model’s head scarf, use the least dominant color as your accent when choosing pillows, throws, etc. Amber created a multifunctional use of the desk by doubling it as the night stand which is also a great space saving tip for small areas!
Instantly Inconic is that go-to look. Its the classic DVF wrap dress and red lip. Pair it with an trendy top bun and classic clutch and you are ready to go! Amber envisioned this model lounging effortlessly with a cocktail in her hand. She paired the look with some adorable Mitchell Williams + Bob Gold upholstered wool chairs and a cow hide rug.
We can’t deny the return to retro we’ve been seeing this season so the Bloomingdales stylists added this white and blue halter jump suit to the mix. Amber went psychedelic with the tableware in this vignette and kept the mod going with the 3 arm floor lamp and acrylic bucket chair. Totally radical….
Cool As Ice
This look was inspired by the all-white trend we are picking up on this season. From tailored capris to the classic white button down, pairing whites and grays is a YES in fashion and design!! Amber created this vignette by mixing white and gray in equal distribution. By keeping the contrast equal, you are get a cohesive sense of a monochromatic coloring that keeps the excitement!
Stripes are here to stay. Classic and chic. A stripe pattern is the perfect addition to any wardrobe or interior. It immediately adds dimension and typically can work with any pattern or shape!
Colors of the Season
Blue, Red, Yellow and Green are the colors of the season!! Everywhere Amber turned around there was a bright and colorful bag so she asked the handbag department to showcase the bags of the season along with a vibrant table setting perfect for a summer party!!
Remember, decorating your home does not have to be hard (or expensive)!! Treat it like your wardrobe, surround yourself with “signature statement” pieces that bring you joy inside! Loving your space is the basis of living a healthy and fulfilled life.
Amber and her team (left to right: Corene, Samara, Amber, Amelia, Alivia) were so honored to host this event and were happy to help the Harbor House of Central Florida by giving back 10% of any sale generated by the event! They are excited to bring more of their youthful energy and mature design style back to Bloomingdales in September 2015!!
