When You See An Image Of An Iconic Figure From The World Of Fashion, Cinema Or Music, Do You Think Interior Design?

Do you dream in color?  This is a popular question asked on the subject. Color is such an influential and integral part of our decorated lives, and yes, I most definitely dream in color.  No big surprise as I write, source and see enough of it in my daily spin around the interior design world.  I happily refer to Chicago’s “Colour My World” as the theme song of my life.  It’s a colorful world we exist in, and thank goodness it is!

Donna Favors quote

I often wonder if when others dream or see something of particular interest or beauty if they see it in terms of decor.  When you see an image of an iconic figure from the world of fashion, film or music, do you think interior design?

Pale pink paired with two color basics, the classic color combination of black and white and/or the color brown, brings to mind the chocolate, vanilla and strawberry color block of Neapolitan ice cream.

Smoky hues cast both the image and the feel of warmth, a sexy vibe some would say.  The design floor is wide open for interpretation and color implementation.

Dramatic, dark, and defiant to convention.  The common threads of the decor and design beautifully parallel the figure.


Inspirational and iconic!  Remarkable figures capture our attention in the same way that classic design and decors influence our homes.

I thought it appropriate to include the gorgeous design of interior designer Roger Thomas, the genius behind the fabulous interior design of Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Las Vegas.


Frank Sinatra ruled the Vegas strip as one of the most iconic entertainers in the town’s entertainment history.  The swank, swagger and style influence of Ol’ Blue Eyes is woven into the history, character, landscape and design of Las Vegas.
