Hi! It is time for another installment of “Inspired by DIY.” This time we are using Iris Apfel wonderful style as inspiration to create a DIY or Interior Design project. I chose the photo above to guide my post today.
So what did I come up with?
Well, because I am a good human, I trolled many, many web pages looking for home decór pieces that fit her style(somewhat), but that I would also like to have in my home.
I am not into Baroque or Victorian decorations that much, which is a problem as she loves pieces like that, but there is a middle place where color meets velvet in which Iris Apfel and I completely agree with.
Take a look:
1-Gliming Primrose Mirror / 2-Sunset Vintage Kantha / 3-Linen Beatrix Dining Chair / 4-Brass Plam Taper / 5-Julie Swivel Chair / 6-Velvet Orianna Headboard / 7-Velvet Ardmore Chair / 8-Spiced Saffron Vintage Kantha / 9-Laurette Rug / 10-Velvet Lyre Chesterfield Grand Sofa / 11-Velvet Leonelle Sofa / 12-Elephant Bookends
That velvet blue chair and the dark pink sofa are my favorites. Iris was a big textile fanatic, that is why I included the two Kanthas shown above (2 & 8). The business that made most of her money in the early years was a textile shop. She traveled around the world looking for beautiful textiles to sell in the US. Can I have that job, please?
For other of my projects from the “Inspired by DIY” series, here is the link to cement planters inspired by Wes Anderson, a flower arrangement inspired in Genevieve Gorder, and a fun painting + printables inspired by Miles Redd.
Now, I would recommend you head over to check out what my other fellow blogger friends did for this series. Here are the links to their posts:
