Last month over the 4th of July holiday, Adam and I enjoyed a mid-week getaway to New York City.  We hopped a train early Tuesday morning and found ourselves in the Big Apple just in time for brunch.  Our travel style is pretty flexible, with a few key things we want to see, and plenty of snack breaks in between. We spent most of our time touring the main building of The Met and The Cloisters at the Met, and especially loved the Heavenly Bodies exhibit which explores the relationship between high fashion and the Catholic Church.  The exhibit was more impactful to both of us that we expected and we left with a renewed curiosity and appreciation for fashion.  I was also inspired to think about how some of the elements of the exhibit could be translated to interiors.  The buildings of The Met are beautiful, and the fashion displays seemed to be just as much as part of the environment as the structures of the buildings themselves.  One of my favorite pieces by Versace inspired me to design a room around the piece and the lovely surroundings of The Cloisters.  This design pulls from the warmth and elegance of the black velvet contrasted with the textures and variations of the stone walls punctuated with touches of brass and the arch motif to create a soothing and elegant collection.  I hope you're inspired to create a space that is a reflection of your experiences, or maybe pull some inspiration from this one.  And as this is my inaugural post into this type of content, I'd love to hear your feedback on more of these types of posts in the comments below.
