RUNWAY TO ROOM VING LOOKS TO THE CATWALK FOR FASHION- FORWARD INTERIORS. Metallic sandals, cool neutrals, white cotton: All are spot-on fashion trends this spring. But Koo de Kir Architectural Interiors' creative director, Kristine Irving, believes cool fashion need not be limited to the closet. "I love drawing connections between what we wear and how we can translate it to our homes," she says. Here are some of Irving's fashion-inspired décor tips. MIX AND MATCH "There are so many watercolor- inspired fabrics on the runway. I love an ethereal, breezy pattern like Christopher Farr's swirly wall- paper (Studio 534, Boston Design Center, 617-345-9900; s5boston .com). But don't forget, a classic like white linen is both a wardrobe and décor essential. Rodolph's white linen is fresh and clean, perfect for pillows or sheets." Ailanthus, Boston Design Center, 617-482-5605; SURPRISING ACCESSORIES "I'm seeing metallics and sheen balanced with classic materials like denim. De Le Cuona's Cleopatra linen fabric would make an elegant pillow or outrageous drapery (Studio 534, Boston Design Center, 617-345- 9900; Another great pick: Phillip Jeffries grasscloth wallpaper (Boston Design Center, 857-250-4340;" TANTALIZING TEXTURE "Subtle tone-on-tone and textured patterns are winners. Mutina's Decrier Bianco hexagonal tile at Stone Source reminds me of the I'm seeing lacework in spring fashions." 327 A St., 617-671-0900; . PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF INSTAGRAM.COM/KOODEKIR (BRICK, PAINT, MOOD BOARD); NAT REA PHOTOGRAPHY (KITCHEN, BATHROOM, DINING ROOM) "All of my interiors have some unexpected elements of pattern, texture, or color," says ace designer Kristine Irving of her fashion- inspired interiors. 132 BOSTONCOMMON-MAGAZINE.COM SPACE INSPIRATION
