How I've Translated My Personal Style to My Interiors

Four ways I used my wardrobe to guide how I decorated my Brooklyn apartment.

Your twenties are for experimenting and your thirties are for honing. That’s how I’ve always thought about my personal style – the older I’ve gotten, the more I feel settled into my own personal aesthetic. At 33, I’m more willing to break from popular trends and double down on what tickles my aesthetic interests. When it comes to my home, the journey has looked a little bit different. It wasn’t until I was 29 that I had the chance to live by myself. I spent most of my twenties living with roommates, compromising on shared spaces while finding small ways to infuse my personality into my home.

When I finally moved into my first tiny studio, it marked the chance to create something that was entirely mine – true to my needs and tastes. But, building a home (like a wardrobe) isn’t about buying in bulk to just be done with it. Curating my dream home has been a slow and steady operation, a methodical exercise in incorporating little touches that speak to my sense of style. From my first 500-foot studio, to my current space in Brooklyn, I’ve evolved the ways in which my home reflects who I am and where I am in my life and my personal style.

To incorporate your own sense of style into your home, start by pulling inspiration from your own closet – focusing on colors, textures, and aesthetics. If your fashion sense tends to be more bohemian, look for jewel tones and lush fabrics, while a minimalist will prefer a more muted palette and stark furniture.
