As a shoe-aholic and having run my own shoe emporium in the past, I thought it would be interesting to draw a few parallels between shoes and my new business of providing Living and Interior design solutions.
Most women would put buying shoes in their top 3 expenditures and I would suspect that wanting a lovely, warm and inviting home comes close to that top three.
It’s about our personality, our mood, a statement! We express ourselves through what we wear and by how we live. Feeling confident, sexy, walking tall in a pair of
killer heels; feel vibrant, confident with the colour and design in your home.
‘Shoes create a dream’, as quoted by Christian Louboutin. The desire to feel sexy and romantic is a women’s dream……….We create a haven in our home; subtle lighting, fragrance candles, scatter cushions, soft rug under our feet, make for that same dream. The desire to relax and be oneself in the comfort of our own home.
The skillful design and craftmanship involved in making shoes by hand….. the smell of the leather pieces hanging in the factories ready to be cut to shape, as the shoes move around the factory on the conveyor belt as different stages are added until the final result is reached. We move around our home, picking things up, putting things down, re-arranging furniture, changing colours, adding textures and finishings until we reach our perfect result.
And then there is the fashion statement. Shoes and Interior design change with fashion; colours, style, techniques, contemporary, classic, elaborate, casual and we as slaves to fashion change our style to suit.
I could continue to demonstrate the correlation between these two powerful inspirations…… but I will leave that for another day!
