i spy: separated at birth.

i couldn’t help but notice how well some of this snappy home decor matched up with these equally fab fashion photos. i thought it might be fun to spy some pairs, possibly ‘separated at birth’. who really knows which comes first, and who may have inspired who…but i do think fashion influences furniture design, and very much the visa-versa.

  1. I am always so inspired by your posts and today’s is brilliant!
    My daughter lived in SF for a year and I visited frequently—even thought you may complain about the weather, it is better than Wisconsin—so, many of your images are familiar and pleasant reminders of my visits.

  2. Perfectly paired, every one. I am envious of whoever gets to lounge on that yellow sofa in that lovely vintage yellow dress.

  3. Oh this is so wonderful! What a great idea.
    Still, I am always amazed at how creative you and so many other bloggers can be. Looking at all these things keeps the mind sharp and the creative juices flowing!!

  4. Very CLEVER – WOW LOVE how these fashions reflect each other !!! Love it !!! MORE MORE !!
    Ohhhhhh I LOVE the wild chairy fabric .. stunning !

  5. *ahem…sometimes I think that Doris Day and Victoria (of sfgirlbybay) were separated at birth. totally her doppelganger!

  6. I have always been intrigued by the “room to outfit” and visa versa that I first discovered in Donmino. You put together some wonderful ones here. The vintage examples put an extra spin into the concept. Thanks for the retro looks!
