Turn an Outfit Into a Room: Modern Funk

Another season of Project Runway is upon us, and you know what that means don't you? Another season of Turn an Outfit Into a Room! That's right design lovers check in with Ellenor weekly to see a fashion design transform into an interior design.

However this season will be a real challenge in that the transformation will come from one of the not so successful designs from the runway. We'll see how something that doesn't work as an outfit can be re-imagined to work as room. So let's get started of the premier of...

Turn that (bad) Outfit into a (great) Room!

On last night's premier of Project Runway, season 10, Kooan Kosuke made us all laugh with his quirky and bright personality. But when it came to his runway design his bright personality and bold designs fell short.

But take those same pops of color and funky patterns, shake them up, and lay them out in new way and you can come up with a room that is super cool and modern. The key is using the colors and patterns in a bunch of small doses with an underlying simple background. In this room the walls should be a simple white, and the floors would look best as a light stained wood. This creates a perfect backdrop to allow for bold colors and patterns.

Streamlined furniture and modern materials, such as metals and acrylic, help to punch this room up and achieve some of the futuristic accents that Kooan had in his design. While you may never see yourself walking down the street in this outfit, hopefully you would love hanging out in this modern, funky room.... Ellenor would!

Til next week,
