07 Feb How to Bring Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour Into Your Home Decor
If you were lucky enough to score Taylor Swift tickets for her Eras tour, or watched the movie version of the concert (or both!), you were no doubt amazed by the numerous costume changes, with each one more spectacular than the last. Here at D2E we love color and pattern and things with movement, and so does Taylor. Follow us on a journey of the eras and how the elements of her outfits can translate to captivating interiors!
Nothing says you’re the boss like a silver blazer or a stainless fume hood. Note the red at the bottom of the boots or on the knobs of the Wolf stove for just that subtle hint of a power color. Even in small doses, red makes a statement.
A Roberto Cavalli dress drapes beautifully and shimmers in a way not dissimilar to how a chandelier dresses a room. We love the warm gold tone and unusual lines in both of these images. These are the details that make this concept work so well!
A full drape in rich warm colors is true for Taylor’s Etro dress, as well as the window treatments on the right. This was actually my favorite era in the concert, with a stunning witchy dance followed by a dining room scene that could have been straight out of a Broadway play. This look definitely brings drama, in the very best way.
Black and slinky and asymmetrical. Taylor is strutting her stuff just like these bold black statues on our clients’ bedroom dresser. I hate snakes but I think this was my favorite outfit. Every home should have an unforgettable element, and this Roberto Cavalli fashion creation left a huge impression on me.
It’s no secret that purple is my favorite color. Among other qualities, purple is meant to represent creativity. It certainly does for Taylor; this moment screams artistry. We used lavender in this interior of a girl’s bedroom. The girl herself is a big reader and maybe a budding writer. Even the pillow in the dreamy lavender bedroom interior speaks!
So in addition to featuring lots of red, Taylor’s Red set was also black and white and bold all over. Kind of like this shower we designed for a primary bath in Center City. Oh, and the black and white tile was custom made by a company called RED Rock Tileworks. Feel free to ponder that if you don’t have “a lot going on at the moment.”
These row house residents own the adjacent lot and made it into a secret garden, featuring a green wall of succulents. A perfect place for Folklore dreaming. I personally thought the Folklore era dragged on waaay too long. Go ahead, accuse me of being a hater – I guess haters gotta hate hate hate hate hate hate.
Yes, we know the 1989 costume was pink in the movie, and it’s made appearances in green and blue as well, but the fringes on the orange version had us thinking about heron plumage and fronds of leaves in the amazing House of Hackney wallpaper we used in a Doylestown living room.
Forget the dress for a minute, can we talk about all the flowers painted on the piano? Embroidering colorful natural elements is a long standing tradition of the Otomi (people from central Mexico). My mom painted my coffee table in our Mexico inspired sunroom with Otomi-like patterns, and Taylor’s instrument seems to be following suit.
We would say this Persian-inspired dining room is giving Midnight. The patterns on the wall-mounted plates resemble the intricacies of the lace on Taylor’s Oscar de la Renta bodysuit, and the blue paint adds a layer of mystery.
