Rooms Inspired By Corsages

August 13, 2010

You can be inspired by so many different things from the wings of a bird to a corsage on your blouse! Ban.do is a small business that specializes in creating beautiful corsages and other decorative pieces to embellish your wardrobe — it’s exciting to peruse their website because you can always find something lovely but you also can find inspiration for your next decorating project! How so? Take inspiration from the colors, patterns and textures and translate those things into a room — it’s all about letting your imagination play and giving yourself the freedom to explore something new — who would have thought that a brooch pinned on a vintage dress could inspire a wall of plates? But it can.

Rooms Inspired By Corsages

These images above, paired with the corsages, were not inspired by work of ban.do — though I’ve paired them to appear as such. This is merely an example to support my point so that you get an idea as to exactly how this sort of thing works. Now it’s your turn. Here are some more lovely things from ban.do below. Perhaps you can use them to inspire a room in a your home now, or someday?

And a big P.S. — yes that model with the red hair is the lead singer Alison Sudol from A Fine Frenzy that I wrote about a few years ago after seeing her in concert. She is a doll, isn’t she?

Let your creativity run wild, inspiration is all around you if you pause for a moment to simply see it.

    I love these types of accessories, because they really MAKE an outfit- especially one that would otherwise be very simple.

    thanks for sharing… and happy weekend:).

    I love being inspired by random things like this! I have been watching Design Star on HGTV & it always makes me look at what inspires me and how I can be inspired by something I never normally would be inspired by. I wish some one would hand me some money and say “Lorajean, design a room inspired by that teal sequin bow tie!” Or maybe they would say design a room by only shopping at the office supply store or something! :) that would be so neat! Thanks for all the inspiring posts!

    It’s so true that fashion can inspire interiors.
    I was looking at the models hair thinking of it as so like the girl from A fine frenzy (who’s cd I bought after readin your post on her all that time ago!) and then low and behold you mention that it is Alison!
    Gorgeous,and so is Bando of course.
