SWLS HOME - Giving your abode that fashionable feeling!

Along with a passion for fashion, Sleuth's heart also lies at home, where creating yourself a stylish abode can be as satisfying as having a fabulous wardrobe. 
So enter SWLS HOME, where Sleuth will be providing commentary and links to fab decorating & homewares, helping you to create yourself a space that not only reflects your personality, but your fashionable style as well!
What better way to kick off SWLS HOME than by looking at the many fashion designers who have tapped into our love for having a vogue look both in our wardrobes and the rooms beyond, and who have created fabulous diffusion lines that add the sparkle of haute couture to spaces beyond our walk-ins.
Fashion-oriented homeware pioneers such as Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Missoni have been joined by the likes of Diane Von Furstenberg, Kate Spade and Marchesa, creating collections for the bedroom, kitchen and beyond. What's intriguing is that in many cases the designer home collections have actually become more desired and lucrative than the fashion itself, (Sleuth is waiting with baited breath for Missoni's home collection for US Target due September!) resulting in fashion designers taking on a cult following with their homewares, and allowing us to have super-stylish abodes in which to house our shoes, handbags, accessories, clothes.....and the rest of life's little possessions! 
Diane von Furstenberg's home collection - you can buy this whole setting for USD $680 - BUY HERE
So often, some simple bursts of colour, great patterns and a few key pieces of furniture can really brighten up a room, and you don't need to be a millionaire to achieve a fashionable look at home. 
A Sleuth fave is Diane von Furstenberg's home collection, which is an eclectic ensemble of mish-mashed prints and block colours, lending an incredibly funky look for a fairly affordable price. 
Below are some of Sleuth's picks for fab fashion-inspired homewares that will help make your home a fashionable haven that you'll love living in....
