High Gloss Finish


The Washington Design Center and DC Magazine
Fall 2007 Design House – “A Fashion House”
September 28 – December 15

Menswear designs by Ferragamo, Dolce & Gabbana and Dior were the inspiration for my “High Gloss Finish Bedroom” in the fashion inspired Design House. I created the profile of a fictitious client and designed a bedroom for him.

The bedroom belongs to a city dweller in his 30’s. His bold retro-modern style is reflected in glossy modern and art deco inspired elements chosen carefully for his bedroom. His interests include art and design, alternative music and English football.

This man enjoys dressing in cutting edge designer clothes with a vintage feel. His favorite attire is his Dolce & Gabbana sharkskin suit with a contrasting shawl color and sleek pencil pants, which he wears with a crisp white monogrammed shirt, his favorite vintage cuff links and a colorful silk necktie. On cold evenings he opts for a cashmere scarf rather than an overcoat. He chooses polished black crocodile oxfords to complete the look. His bedroom has been dressed to reflect the way he looks and feels in his sharkskin suit.
