New York City
HAVE SOME FUN TODAY - We all need inspiration. Creating inspirational spaces in your home that can be designed to met the needs of your life is the perfect balance of form and function. Today on our new vlog HSFT episode, HSFT Founder and CEO Stephanie Taormina visits some places in New York City that give her inspiration. As a designer of both interior space and fashion, she looks to fine art, architecture and even fabric to spark her creativity. Color and texture, simple or intricate design.
Stephanie believes in making your living space an inspiring place to be. It's easy to refresh and revive the places you spend most of your time with a few simple changes and additions. Start with your living room. Pillows are a simple way to have an immediate impact. Our HAVE SOME FUN TODAY luxe message pillow is bold and graphic and fun reminder to seize the day! We love it paired with other patterned and textured pillows on a crisp white couch in the living room.
As an fashion designer, Stephanie's creativity has brought to life our HSFT luxe tees, totes, and other goodies as part of her vision for the brand. She believes in classic, clean lines and decadent comfort. She loves a bold graphic pattern and mixing textures.
"Texture is a great way to refresh a space. Layering a faux animal hide rug over a main focal area in the room creates a chic effect that works with traditional to modern interiors," Steph says. She also recommends replacing a coffee table with a natural textured ottoman, in a fresh neutral upholstered linen, and accenting with a cool tray, like the ones you can find from your local Homegoods. "It's easy to add accessories like a great looking candle, an orchid from the grocery store, and a pretty coffee table book." Instant transformation!
Inspiration is all around us, if we look hard enough. Creating spaces in your home that spark a sensory experience or perfectly meets our demands and needs is a sanctuary we always retreat to. What inspires you?
