Now, thanks to an emerging trend in travel, you can—by simply making a reservation. Over the past few years, a growing number of international style arbiters, from Christian Lacroix and Armani to Missoni and Dior, have been teaming up with high-end resorts and hotels to put their distinctive stamp on properties around the globe.
Some, like Diane Von Furstenberg and Oscar De La Renta, were tapped to rework the décor of a suite or series of rooms at a single property, while others have gone so far as to partner with major developers to launch eponymous hotel brands that span from Australia to South America to the Middle East. These ultra-chic living spaces reflect the fashion brands’ unique personalities and exemplify the way that they themselves would choose to travel and live. Elizabethan Make-up.

The first George store opened in Dubai this week Asda looks set to expand its George clothing brand into homeware. The retailer has registered the ‘George Home’ name with the Intellectual Property Office across all the main home appliance, clothing and electronic product categories, as well as under the domain name George.home. It is not yet clear whether George Home will be a standalone or in-store offering or whether it will be in addition to or a replacement for Asda Living.
Asda refused to be drawn on its plans for the George brand, which opened its first clothing store in Dubai this week but hasn’t had a standalone presence in the UK since 2008, when Asda closed its 11 George stores. “There is nothing to report at the moment,” an Asda spokesman said. “We register logos, trademarks and domains all the time.” There are currently 33 Asda Living stores nationwide. It also announced that it had been improving the layout of Asda Living stores, following feedback from customers. Asda registers 'George Home'... but will it replace Living brand? The History of Interior Design | SBID. Why Every Man Needs A Man Cave. Sorry ladies, but this post is devoted to men (although, stick around for some great gender-neutral decorating inspiration). While both sexes need a place to escape; a place to call their own—the popular evolution of the man cave has blown away its competition (the sewing rooms, home libraries and craft rooms that most women dream of adding to their home take second place in this war of square footage).

A Place to Unwind. October Communications. COMMERCIAL DESIGN TRENDS: DESIGN DIVERSITY.
Blog Camper knows how to find designers who can really make their brand shine. A-cero‘s design in Granada certainly highlights the strong brand. A steadfast rule in commercial interior design is to maintain consistency for corporate chains across their many locations. Have you ever wondered why every McDonald’s restaurant design looks the same no matter its geographical whereabouts? A lot of research was completed to help brands like McDonald’s determine that consistency in their image improves brand awareness, and ensures their customers know exactly what to expect whether they visit a store in Vancouver or Montreal.
Sound reasoning right? Well, yes and no. McDonald’s demonstrates perfectly the new commercial design trend of brand diversity with this French location designed by Patrick Norguet. This progression to design diversity has not happened overnight. A new demand for variety encouraged evolution for the preferred design model. Camper has a slightly different approach.

Gregory BristerDepartment of English, December 2010University of Kansas The Mainstream of Consciousness: James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, William Faulkner and Mass Modernism argues that the “stream of consciousness” method which has become synonymous with “high” modernism was, in actuality, a widely accepted and employed trope within interwar popular culture.
Instead of considering the ways writers like Joyce, Woolf, and Faulkner resisted consumer culture, this project argues that their work both informed and was informed by advertising and best-selling fiction. ELEMENTS OF DESIGN SCALE AND PROPORTION. Blog Although another element of design, colour, is applied, proportion is also a key contributor in making this lounge space at Creston (designed by The Interiors Group) really stand out.
For our final post in our blog series, we are going to focus on the elements of design, scale and proportion. In commercial Interior Design, the most important objective for a project is to enhance our everyday experiences within the environments we work, live, and play. Although consideration of all the elements of design is necessary to achieve this goal, scale and in turn, proportion have the largest impact on spatial functionality. The classic Barcelona chair is an icon, but because it’s so low it often appears as though it is not sized appropriately for our modern human scale. In the room pictured above by Design Partners International for Kuper, vertical line has been applied to the ceiling and wall to draw the eye down and add a sense of proportion to the space.

Originating in the work of Max Wertheimer, Gestalt psychology formed partially as a response to the structuralism of Wilhelm Wundt. The development of this area of psychology was influenced by a number of thinkers, including Immanuel Kant, Ernst Mach and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. "The fundamental "formula" of Gestalt theory might be expressed in this way,” Max Wertheimer wrote.

The Influence of Fashion on Interior Design - CocoMode. Interior design styles are ever changing in the same way that fashion styles are, yet it's interesting to see just how much one industry influences the other.

World of Interiors Influencing World of Fashion. The world of fashion is getting influenced by the world of interior design and décor. The worlds of fashion and the décor seem to be colliding. Both the worlds are now engaging as the creative minds of the worlds are joining together and that is happening because of the social media forces. As the collection hits the fashion runway the media such as reporters, fashion photographers, bloggers like me are now sharing the events with their readers and followers.

Prince of Pattern: Jonathan Saunders’ colourful new rugs - The Rug Company Blog. Since exploding onto the international fashion scene, Jonathan Saunders has been revered for his graphic prints and vibrant colour combinations. Now he lends his prodigious talent as a print maker to rugs with four new designs, showcasing his masterful understanding of pattern and flair for clashing incongruous colours, creating visual harmony in discord. Having started in product design, Saunders is frequently inspired by architecture and interiors. Nouveau blends the sinuous shapes reminiscent of decorative glass with surreal colour tones, while Herringbone is a transformation of the weaving technique, with an unexpected clashing colour palette. The collection includes two runners: Harrington, influenced by the architectural aspects of Charlotte Perriand’s work, and Hutton, inspired by vintage wallpaper given a modern twist with Saunders’ vibrant hues.

How does the world of Fashion influence the world of Interiors? According to Gretchen Aubuchon, Editor in Chief of Fashion + Decor, who recently spoke with industry leaders in both the fashion and the home design fields about this very topic, feels that “the worlds of fashion and decor are colliding.” She explains where there was once a 5 to 6 year lag from the runway to furniture showrooms, “then a couple of years ago we were seeing just a 2 year or 2 season lag, and now both worlds are engaging as the creative minds are joining together with the social media forces.”
It seems, according to many, that almost as soon as a collection hits the runway, reporters, photographers and bloggers are sharing these events with their readers and viewers.

A few years ago Philippe Starck made a splash by collaborating with Italian cashmere company Ballantyne , just as Missoni started building hotels and Zac Posen designed interiors for the 16w21 condos . After decades of determined separation, interior and fashion designers are playing nicely together—or at least sharing the same playground. According to some, this trend is a throwback to the past. “In the 18th century, fashion fabrics and decorative fabrics were very similar,” says Patrick Lelievre , chairman of the Parisian textile house Lelievre , which has successfully partnered with Rochas , Kenzo , Sonia Rykiel and most recently Jean-Paul Gaultier in a merger of the two mediums. “We work a lot like fashion designers,” says Patrick Reymond, co- founder of Atelier Oï , a Switzerland-based architecture and design firm who has collaborated on bottles for Bulgari Parfums and, most recently, furniture for Louis Vuitton.
