Decorate Your Home Like A Shoe Designer
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Christian Louboutin. Celebrate by bringing some of his iconic trademark designs into your home.
The most famous shoe design house of the century is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Whether you own a pair or not, you can agree that every pair is a work of art that takes your breath away. Incorporate some of the most iconic design elements into your home for the same effect. The Anemone, Pensee and Pigalle embody the spirit of Christian Louboutin, and here are some ways to bring that spirit into your home.
The Anemone is a shoe that is fun as well as elegant. The satin, bows and feathers can make for one fun room in the house. Go for a satin couch with large satin-bow accent pillows. If you don't want to get a satin couch, this design easily translates into the bedroom -- satin sheets and a satin comforter for your bed, with red table lamps on black end tables.
To bring the feathers into the room, opt for decorative wall art, like this feathered canvas from Etsy. It adds elegance, simplicity and intrigue add is perfectly offset by this feminine and whimsical bow pillow.
The Pensee dates back to the mid-'90s and is the shoe that can be credited with the iconic red sole. To bring this design to life, pair a soft yellow wall with yellow furniture. Use yellow accent pillows to bring the other elements of the show to life. A yellow accent pillow with black piping would be perfect. Throw it on the couch along with a yellow floral pillow. Make a wall collage using empty red frames -- you can buy them or spray paint some old frames you have around the house.
For the coffee table, if yellow is too much for you, opt for a soft cream or light natural wood finish. And for the finishing touch, proudly display your Christian Louboutin 20th Anniversary book for guests to flip through.
This is probably the shoe that comes to mind first when you think about Christian Louboutin -- that perfect 5-inch heel, black patent leather, and signature red sole that can somehow make any outfit look amazing. Lets bring this look into the dining room.
Pair a black dining room table with soft white fabric-upholstered chairs. Keep the centerpiece sleek and simple with two sterling silver candlesticks. Keep the room bright with a neutral wall and hang a few black and white family pictures in red frames throughout the room. For the table setting, pair a silver charger with cream or white plates and black napkins.
