How to complete the Designer World of Style look

If the World of Style personality quiz returned the Designer portfolio as your preference, or you just know you already love the look, follow these steps to complete your ultimate interior styling efforts! 

As far as you can run from Resort, and a world away from the softer Classic charm, the Designer portfolio serves up classic items with a designer twist.

Up, down and all around, these are the must-have pieces that make a Designer portfolio:

  • Up – Overhead, choose light pendants with architectural detail that are shaped in wire, or add glam with ribbed glass, we like Lineare A pendant light by About Space and the Verre Ring glass pendant lamp by Emac & Lawton.
  • Down – You need a low backed sofa in tan or black. It’s not negotiable in the Designer World of Style. We particularly love the button and piping details on the Mercer Deco Leather sofa, and the industrial detail on the Detroit Study Console - both by Coco Republic. An occasional chair with a combination of materials will add depth and appeal, go for metal and black leather like the Timothy Oulton Mars Chair – Old Saddle Black, also by Coco Republic.
  • Around – Artwork and décor items are stare worthy with their statement, from the black and white abstract artwork and photography, to the bronze and copper metal feature of the trinkets. The Spencer Abstract Collection by the Designer Boys and the Wright Shapes Small – Brass by Coco Republic define this look.
