Fashion meets Interiors: featuring Nneka Elliott

I hope everyone is enjoying the tail end of their summer! I am back with a brand new Fashion meets Interiors post featuring creator, host, and fashion blogger Nneka Elliott, whose foundation is based in her Caribbean roots. Nneka infuses Caribbean style and culture throughout her blog and personal style, bringing Caribbean heritage to her life in America. Meet Nneka and explore how she styles an original outfit based on this vibrant interior design and wall art by Leah Bartholomew.

I’m a long time tv news girl, with an island soul, chasing my dreams as a host, actor and content creator. I blog about my life as a woman on screen and the things that help me shine on camera. All the clothes, beauty/hair products and lifestyle tips that work for me. I recently quit the news biz after more than a decade of reporting and anchoring in Toronto, Canada. As such my style has also transitioned to be less conservative. I’d describe my personal style now as classic with a side of island chic.

That’s why I felt most drawn to this particular design photo. The botanical feel of Leah Bartholomew’s art work gave me a slight island vibe. The leaves, the citrusy vibrant colours. I could definitely see myself hosting an episode of my online lifestyle talk show in this room! I often talk about the intersectionality that is my identity as a Canadian woman of Caribbean descent (St.Vincent & the Grenadines & Trinidad to be specific.) I’m getting a bit of that dual identity when I look at this room. The artwork juxtaposed with the more neutral, classic tones in the furniture and decor.

Artwork by Leah Bartholomew

I pulled out the least prominent colour in the room, which is the orange (my favourite colour) and made it the dominant colour in my outfit.  I paired some comfy wide leg trousers with a hieroglyphic patterned tank from Caribbean designer Fashion is Payne. Then I threw on a faux suede moto jacket to tie in the pinks/blush in the painting and the texture of the couch. I recently got the african print clutch from a black owned pop up market. I really wanted to add a tiny bit of the electric blue from the painting, plus I love orange and navy. So it was a no brainer really. I love outfits that are multidimensional and represent who I am and this room provided the perfect opportunity to do so!


Thank you, Nneka for sharing your eclectic and colorful style with us. This outfit is perfect for the summertime, can be transformed from a business meeting to a night out on the town!

Fashion meets Interiors: featuring Studio Seven Style

Happy Weekend everyone! We’re back with a new Fashion meets Interiors feature to inspire you today with an outfit styled by Julie Pratz of Studio Seven Style! Julie Pratz is a self-described fashion psychologist and personal stylist who is committed to transforming wardrobes and enhancing confidence from the inside out.  Her company, Studio Seven Style, helps give her clients the tools to make fashion fun instead of frustrating.

She has spent the last ten years building relationships and is most passionate about the work she is doing to empower people to look and feel their best. As a previous fitness trainer turned image consultant, Julie has a developed a unique perspective when it comes to fashion and style. Influenced by art, architecture and nature, she aspires to help people reflect who they are designed to be while standing out in the crowd. Today Julie has styled model Valencia Roy in an outfit to match this stunning space and her personal style. Read on as Julie describes her inspiration for completing this Fashion meets Interiors look. 

I would define my personal style is California chic: warm, modern and alluring with a splash of rock and roll.  The pink dress was inspired by the beautiful rug.  I love that both items are elegant but still have a warm and comfortable feeling. The navy chair inspired the blue metallic jacket because both have a bit of sheen and are structured in form but luxurious in appearance.

My favorite part of any outfit is the accessories. This is where you can transform your outfit and take it from drab to fabulous! Accessories for an outfit are like the art on the wall in an interior space, they should be both very personal and unique.

I selected the long gold modern Vita Fede earrings to mirror the long lean legs of the table and the gold frames on the art. I chose an eclectic mix of bracelets to reflect the modern and eclectic feel of the room. The Matthew Campbell (MCL) blue topaz bracelet has similar color and shapes as the blue rectangles on the back wall. The leather and stone bracelet was inspired from the pictures of the bull and matador as well as the horns on the table.  The white and gold alligator cuff had a strong contemporary feel which I connected with the white couch and gold side table. 

The MCL necklace tied the darker metallic blue with the lighter blue and created a connection and focal point as the chair does for the wall. The cowhide tote mirrored the pillow on the chair and I paired it with the bright white handbag to give my models outfit a more layered look. The chic white Fendi handbag reminded me of the lamp with the scalloped edges and modern retro look. Last but not least- the shoes. The bronze shoes by Malone were inspired by the bronze table with dark linear legs. The table and the shoes connect in color and line and design: both have structure and curves which translate as modern yet feminine. Overall this interiors space and the outfit reflect my personal style: warm, modern, alluring, fun, elegant with a touch of edge.

Fashion meets Interiors: featuring Tabula Rasa

I’m back with a new Fashion meets Interiors feature and today we’re showcasing the cutting edge NYC brand Tabula Rasa. I love their contemporary approach to knitwear and I know you will too. Meet Tabula Rasa founder Emily Diamandis as she styles Tabula Rasa’s clothing to match this stunning interior space. 

I’m Emily Diamandis of Tabula Rasa. At Tabula Rasa we embrace this concept of being able to create an environment of opportunity. Every day is a reset, from the clothes you wear, the people you encounter, and the decisions you make. 

I chose this design because the aesthetic resonated with my own style, playful and modern with sophisticated accents. I really connected with the clean look of this space balanced by the textural quality of the fringed stool and gold accents. I love to layer texture and pattern and elevate the look with a pop of gold jewelry. 

I love having the opportunity to collaborate with Jacquin. I believe that any space we inhabit can become a personalized retreat of comfort, creativity and style and with Tabula Rasa I wanted to create products that allow the owner to express their personal style no matter the space. Jacquin translates this so well into her design.

Made for the modern journeywoman, Tabula Rasa is about feeling luxuriously at home, everywhere in the world.

NYFW Round-Up: Fashion Meets Interiors

The runway is an amazing source to turn to when searching for interior design inspiration. There is an undeniable correlation between interior design and fashion. Both fashion and interior design are a form of self-expression and undoubtedly play off of each other. As New York Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear fashion week winds down I’ve rounded up some of the boldest statements to look forward to in 2018 in both fashion and interior design.  

Relaxed Glamour

The idea of relaxed glamour was in full effect at 2018’s NYFW. Brandon Maxwell’s collection was filled with this contrasting style. One of the looks in the show, shown above, most perfectly embodies the idea of relaxed glamour by pairing a couture-esque skirt with a plain white t-shirt and furry slides. The juxtaposition of naturals and metallics, and the contrast of structured and casual make a lovely combination. The bedroom above by designer Kelly Wearstler is a great example of these combinations in interior design.

Mustard Yellow

Mustard yellow is always an unexpected color in fashion and design, yet Bottega Veneta executes a gorgeous mustard gown that is so luxurious. When styled properly mustard yellow can be the highlight of a tropical-feeling, yet glamorous space like in the look above. Risk-taking interior designers like India Mahdavi have been fans of using mustard yellow in design, as demonstrated by Mahdavi’s retro-inspired luxurious seating area (shown above). 


Christian Siriano Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear via

Another color of the year, Caliente, named the color 0f 2018 by Benjamin Moore, also has a major presence on the runway and in interior design. Christian Siriano opened his show with this statement-making color (shown above). Caliente is being seen on the walls of homes, as well as on rich velvet fabrics like in the chic Parisian lounge above. Caliente is a perfect color choice for somone wanting to make a statement with their decor.


Zimmerman Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear via

Romantic Victorian style is making a major comeback in the interior design world, but also on the runway. The soft composition of understated floral patterns is nicely juxtaposed against a more structured and masculine silhouette as seen in Zimmerman’s stunning suit pictured above. The dramatic stairwell in the interior design shown above has the same contrast of bold and structured, through the geometric floor and pop of yellow vases, all showcased against the delicate Chinoiserie wallpaper. The combination is beautifully timeless. Victorian florals and Chinoiserie prints are the ultimate feminine patterns for those of you looking to mix things up with an ultra-feminine look. 


Anna Sui Fall 2018 Ready-to-wear via

Design by Nathan Turner featured in House Beautiful

Proof of interior design’s influence on fashion was highlighted in one of New York Fashion Week’s top shows. Pantone named Ultraviolet the “color of the year” for 2018 and NYFW designers definitely took notice of the popular hue. Designers like Anna Sui provided a modern twist on the color by pairing it with closely related lavender shades making it borderline monochromatic. Interior design has been a fan of ultraviolet and also tends to pair the color with other purples such as the library by Nathan Turner above. For someone who is looking for subtle ways to incorporate the color into their home, try using ultraviolet pillows for a pop of color. 

Overall, it’s an exciting time in the design world for both fashion and interior design. Designers this 2018 are making bold statements, working with unexpected patterns and color combinations, and inspiring us all! What is your favorite trend from NYFW?

Fashion meets Interiors series: featuring style blogger Lan Vo

It may be cold and icy outside, but I have a warm and sunny Fashion meets Interiors feature for you today! Today style blogger Lan Vo of The Lan Line dazzles us with a chic, pastel-inspired outfit & photoshoot based on the vibrant interior design shown below. I really love how it all came together! Read on as style blogger Lan shares her inspiration behind this fabulous outfit:

Hey Y’all! My name is Lan Vo and I am so excited to be featured on Jacquin’s blog series! I am the creative director of the fashion and lifestyle blog, The Lan Line, where I display my versatile style and lover-of-life attitude!

The space I chose is full of pastels and fun colors! Although it is winter, and these colors don’t really go with the season, I still was drawn to the room and how fun it would be to be in it.
I’ve chosen this room because I felt that it matched my bubbly personality. Pastels in interiors are not very common and that is why I love this space. I love trying styles that are not common and going out of my comfort zone.
When I looked at the interior design inspiration, the room reminded me of this particular dress’ fun floral embroidered details. Additionally, the dress’ shade of blue complemented the room perfectly! I also love the yellow couch and how it adds a pop of color and pattern to the room without overdoing it. It’s so smooth, yet edgy and that’s how I feel about my dress and the details of it.
Of course blush is a perfect pastel shade that can be worn in any season, so naturally I had to add it to my ensemble. I wore my blush statement earrings to accent the pastel blue tones. I think the simplicity in my combination of pastels, makes a big impact in the overall appearance itself, just as pastels do in an interior space. 

Fashion meets Interiors series: featuring Joanna Go

Hi, everyone! My name is Joanna Go and I’m Owner and Creative Director of fashion, style, and beauty blog, CutandChicVintage. As a blogger, I’m constantly on the lookout for style that inspires. I believe style inspiration can come from anywhere—from art to interior design, which is why I’m thrilled to style another look for Jacquin’s Fashion Meets Interiors series. 
The space that I chose is similar to how I’ve decorated my own place. It’s modern, minimal, yet warm. This room has an effortlessly chic quality about it that I often go for in my own wardrobe. Although I’m a minimalist at heart, I’m all for incorporating bold, one of a kind statement pieces for that extra bit of “wow!”, just like with the bold abstract paintings featured in black (see interior design photo below).

At first glance, I immediately connected with the room’s neutral color palette of black and nudes but, what I love most about this room is its details. Some may say that minimalism has a reputation of being monotonous, or cold and uninviting. However, the trick to pulling off a minimalist look that truly stands out is adding an interesting focal point. There’s nothing like a unique bag or a fab pair of shoes to breathe new life into any outfit.

With summer on it’s way when I selected this outfit, I couldn’t help but dream of exotic getaways and holidays by the beach. That was what attracted me to the natural textures in this room and I wanted to incorporate that into my outfit as well. When I saw this woven bag at ZARA, I knew it was the perfect accessory I can use all summer long. It’s so chic and versatile that I can take it from work to play in no time flat. Having a little fun with black clothes & accessories can be a nice change of pace in the summer!


Hope you found some inspiration in my look! A big thank you to Jacquin for inviting me back to her blog. I had such a blast styling my outfit for this Fashion Meets Interiors series.

Fashion meets Interiors: featuring fashion blogger Britney Wilson

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend! I am gearing up for the new year and I am so excited to bring you even more of my original Fashion meets Interiors series in 2017. Today I’ve invited Canadian fashion blogger Britney Wilson to share her interpretation of this luxurious and retro interior space. I must stay that I love the look she came up with. I’ll let Britney take it away from here. You’ll love her chic style! 

Hi, Lovelies! My name is Britney Wilson, and I am the creator of the fashion and lifestyle blog, Pretty Little Hangers. Toronto is the city I call home, but I’m notorious for traveling to exotic destinations around the world to capture unique content to share with my readers. Pretty Little Hangers started as a creative outlet where I could express my love of fashion through inspirational looks that I personally styled; however, within a little over a year; PLH transitioned into an online destination for not only styling tips but trend guides, beauty hacks, and enriching lifestyle tutorials as well.

When Jacquin invited me to participate in the Fashion Meets Interiors segment on her blog, I was delighted to share my thoughts on the interior space of my choice. If you asked me whether or not I think fashion influences interior design trends, my response would be absolutely! 

After reviewing this interior space, I was captivated by the beautiful patterns, colors and gold accents. Since this space has a retro 70s flair, I knew these velvet culottes would be the perfect piece to convey this style. I combined hints of plum along with a stylish keyhole blouse and blazer draped over my shoulders to complete my chic office-friendly look and accessorized with stunning gold accented pieces.

I was captivated by the beautiful patterns, rich colors, and gold accents. Since this space has a retro 70s flair, I knew these velvet culottes would be the perfect piece to convey this style.

This interior design is the perfect example of how fashion and interior design trends correlate with one another. Incorporating gold as an elegant accent piece is common in both interior design and fashion. The gold accent pieces and hardware in this office space help to create a polished yet stylish look. Using gold for ornamentation and stylish accents is a timeless element of fashion. If you get a chance to read the latest issue of Architectural Digest or Vogue, you may notice this distinct trend. Textiles, color palettes, patterns, accessories and hardware merge in an innovative yet effortless way, blending the design element of fashion and interior design.

Fashion meets Interiors: featuring Style Blogger Danielle Jackson

Hi  Dolls! I am Danielle Jackson the editor-in-style of my fashion and lifestyle blog – Where Style Has Purpose! Dani-DK is a place for women who are looking to turn the conventional upside down and explore their most creative side through style, beauty and life experience. A great space to ask questions and feel inspired!

This fall I’ve gravitated towards rich hues and sleek lines. From gold’s to forest green, nature has truly inspired the collections that I shop. I’ve always loved dark walls but have never lived in a home where I’ve been bold enough to paint an accent wall so this olive and navy blue room really spoke to me.


Rich colors can liven any look. Rich shades effortlessly take you look from basic to bold and add a luxe, well-made feel to your outfit regardless of the true price point.

For this look, I pulled together pieces that I’ve purchased over the years. My pants relate back to the clean lines that I’ve been obsessed with this season and I paired it with a sleek lace camisole layered with a blazer and long vest for a bold and interesting look.

As we all know colors speak volumes! There’s nothing like a bright or bold color to lift your mood. The green found in this look is considered a “bridge color” where it creates a great balance between all other colors. So just like the olive green sofa featured achieves grounding this interior, the rich green in my own look effortlessly pulls together my printed blazer and fur stole. Earthy green shades are grounding and powerful, making it a fab color palette to explore with your wardrobe this season.
