Where all things beautiful collide

In the final installment of my series on what’s inspiring me now, revolving around my favorite spring collection, Calvin Klein, the conversation between hard and soft continues.  Leather ruled the runway, but so did silk, sequins, and more.  Yesterday I talked about my favorite black leather furniture pieces, and this post continues that story on how to bring that element also seen on the Calvin Klein runway home, and how to keep the balance of masculine and feminine, hard and soft.  Apparatus continues to play a big role in this dialogue too, with their homes and studio in the mix.  Not that you should copy anyone exactly, but I’ve found some perfect pieces to get the look of their living room.  If you dissect it and also take inspiration from Calvin Klein, you’ll see materials as opposite as each other like silk and concrete, travertine and linen, or wood and fur.  Think of adding any of these elements, and others like leather or snakeskin to your space.  But keep an editing eye, and only add a dollop of each to keep it chic and modern.  And don’t forget my favorite element of all, flowers!
