Turn an Outfit into a Room: Simply Structured

Last night's Project Runway, season 10, challenged the designers with creating a look for a "Woman on the Go." Overall, the designers stepped up to the challenge and created looks that were really going somewhere... others should have been going home to change. Fabio Costa created a so-so look, not really great (other than the fabulous print) but not really bad either. Still, he ended up in the bottom three which means that we can now turn this outfit into a room! 

So here's the look that Fabio created for his woman on the go...

And now, lets go to the lounge for happy hour! The chic simplicity of this outfit can be turned into a perfect lounge to catch up with your friends and a drink after a busy day.
In this space, place 4 high-back, comfy chairs around the cocktail table to create an inviting and intimate place for conversation. Then throw in a little pouf for additional seating or propping your feet up, and add a couple of "wow" pieces to give this space the chic look that every lounge needs.
Just like with the patterned dress in the outfit above, the rug is the central element in the room to provide the pattern and pizazz. Furniture with very structured, clean lines give this room a similar aesthetic that Fabio was after. Modern accessories, also with very linear characteristics are the perfect finishing touch to this room.
Simplicity is key for this outfit and for this room. Pure function, but with with the chicest of style!
