Live Like A Fashion Designer With These Home Trend Tips

Fashion designers aren’t only creative when it comes to designing clothes. They are amazing when it comes to their home, too!

Huffington Post came up with 5 great ideas that you can steal to live like a fashion designer! Check them out below:

Idea #1: Mismatch Seating

Think beyond the style of a seating arrangement, as Mizrahi did in his living room, shown above. Even the fabric choices run the gamut. But complimentary colors, on the more neutral end of the spectrum, keep the room cohesive and practically timeless.
Idea #2: Think Beyond Paint

Paint is one of the easiest ways to change up the look of a room, but fabric-covered panels, as used by designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard to cover the walls in Hilfiger’s office, lend a far more dramatic effect.
Idea #3: Art Doesn’t Always Have To Be Hung

For starters, it’s less work for you; second, a row of framed prints sitting along a picture rail (or, better yet, the floor) give you the feeling that they were just acquired on a fabulous trip abroad (and will be hung once the jet lag subsides).
Idea #4: Don’t Be Afraid Of Oversized Pieces

…Especially if they’re as colorful and fabulous as this.
Idea #5: Utilize The Fifth Wall

The bold colors and pattern in Hilfiger’s living room feel like ample decoration, but the reflective ceiling tie the furniture’s chrome accents together in perfect harmony.

We’ve Got The Best Italian Restaurants In Chicago For You!

Looking for the best Italian restaurant in Chicago? We’re here to help!

Italian food began about 13,000 years ago and firmly established itself when the Greeks and Romans moved to Italy around 1,000 BCE.

Early Italian cuisine consisted of barley or wheat, cooked into a porridge. But nothing says Italian food like pasta! Growing up, many Italian kids were taught to make pasta noodles. By the 1300’s, dried pasta was very popular for its nutrition and long shelf life. It was ideal for those long voyage trips, too. Pasta made it around the world during the voyages of discovery.

Check out this old picture of Italians making pasta below:
