I was first introduced to the impeccable style of Emma Jane Pilkington through the 2015 Elle Decor piece where I literally almost fell out of my chair over the Dries Van Noten skirt she was wearing in this photo. I have searched for this Dries skirt from his Spring 2012 skirt ever since. (That whole collection was so fabulous with geometric design mixed with a griseille print.)
Emma Jane's home is timeless. A genius mix of modern art and classic European antiques. I'm really looking forward to her website featuring more of her work.
I love the Santiago Castillo abstract artwork throughout the home. Santiago's brother Lorenzo Castillo is also a fabulous Interior Designer. In fact, one of my fave rooms Lorenzo did is this one:
Ok wait....... Speaking of that Dries Van Noten 2012 Spring collection, doesn't the above Lorenzo Santiago 2010 room design look like it could have been the inspo. for Dries 2012 fashion collection? I mean HELLO, its so similar!?!
(These are the odd things I notice as a highly observant person)
This has become quite the most rambling post. Anyway, while I'm rambling...
The Belgian Fashion Designer has a home outside of Antwerp that is blooming with inspiration. His designs evolve with unexpected juxtaposition between modern and classical, form and color. His gardens are immaculate. If you are a fashion afficionado, like so many interior design lovers are, I highly recommend watching this inspiring documentary. His estate is stunning.
