Haven’t you ever wondered what the inside of people’s homes looked like? For instance, designers create beautiful collections for the world to wear but is their home reminiscent of that same ideology? Or what about celebrity stylists, comme Brad Goreski. Constantly dressing beauties for events, but are these beauties just their canvas or do their living spaces benefit from the creativity as well?
Last month, Shutterfly and Brad Goreski hosted one of the most amazing hands-on events I’ve been to in a while showcasing some of their latest ways to make your home, your home. While there, we spoke with Monsieur Goreski about the space on display and tips on Shutterfly home decor.
What’s going on here with this Shutterfly space?
I’m barely in my own personal space in my house. I travel a lot but my house is so important to me. I think curating your space and making it as personal as possible is key. Shutterfly does such a great job at allowing you to do that in so many different ways, whether it’s framed canvas, acrylic cubes, mounted paintings or photos or patterns. There’s also these great little tiles that are actually perfect for photos from Instagram so all of these photos have come from my Instagram. It’s really nice. We’re use to looking at our photos on our phones and to see them tangible and living in a space is a really nice thing.
This was actually custom made for me by an artist in house at Shutterfly. When I approach a client, styling for the red carpet, I always start off with a focal point, usually the gown. I approach my living space the same way. I always want there to be, like start of the environment and then really great accessories to kind of accent that. I had the artist also make this kind of glasses graphic, which I thought was really cool because you could make this into a tray. You could make this into just a great decorative element or you can also make these into sconces for lights.
This is one of my favorite things, the scented candles. You can have basically anything, a photo, you can have a fun saying. They come in a gift box so they’re the perfect hostess gift too, something personalized. But I think everyone needs a sense of a humor and so one of the things I do on a daily basis is freak out. It can be good or bad. I can freak out like you probably saw me freak out on tv. I can freak out like for a great gown. There’s also times when I need to be reminded don’t freak out. This is new for Shutterfly. You can have text on this side-
Like a yin and a yang.
You can have a photo on this side, two different prints so we also created this print, which was inspired by color blocking in a Gucci show that I really, really love. I found it’s important to me to incorporate my passion, which is fashion, into my space and make it livable and personable and also fun.
I also see you have plants though. Is that important to have in your space?
Yeah. I think that those also add like a nice little bit of texture in bringing the outside inside and I think it’s always nice to kind of pepper your environment with different textures and shapes and colors to keep your space really fresh.
People add things to their wardrobe each season. Do you do the same thing with your living space?
I don’t, actually. I do actually try to add things but I have to cut myself off because we moved into a new house. It’ll be three years this October.
Thanks. The first two years were very heavy with me constantly buying things and I just had to … You can forever change the photographs on your wall but that’s the great thing with Shutterfly is that the price point is great and you can constantly add, subtract and you don’t have to worry about it really breaking the bank.
Cool. What is your favorite piece in this area right now?
Definitely the “Freak out, Don’t freak out” pillow. That’s something I do all the time. Then I think also the photo of me and Gary that we took in Santa Barbara when we were there a couple of months ago. Super sweet.
