Celebrities. Street style. Fictional characters. Decades passed. We take inspiration from all kinds of people, places and things (#nouns) when it comes to getting dressed. But few of us could say we were inspired by our childhood bedroom, or the doctor’s surgery waiting room, when we’re online shopping. Until now.

Yes, we’re firmly of the belief that your style is ever-evolving, and as such, can be amended or improved in all manner of ways. Being that we’re all kinds of obsessed with chic interiors these days (we’re betting 60% of your Instagram saved snaps are of boutique hotel rooms and dreamy bedroom setups too), why not take your fashion cues from some of the most recognisable interiors on the planet? This’ll help you get started…

Le Sirenuse hotel, Positano
With pastel-painted buildings that seem haphazardly placed in empty spaces between the mountain and the sea, the picturesque coastline of the Amalfi Coast is iconic – and few spots are more bucket-list-worthy than Positano. Should you one day find yourself with a winning lottery ticket, do yourself a favour and book a suite at Le Sirenuse immediately. With its glistening lap pool, creeping bougainvillea, and masterfully-balanced blend of white, terracotta and patterned ceramic tiles, it’s the epitome of Italian Riviera glamour. And who doesn’t want a piece of that?

Sketch restaurant, London

If you’ve never seen this plush pink wonderland-slash-restaurant, we are immensely surprised but also so thrilled to be the one to show it to ya. Isn’t it heaven? This fine dining hotspot in London’s hip Soho neighbourhood draws plenty of food and design lovers thanks to its many fantastical rooms, but our favourite is The Gallery. A chevron tiled floor, baby pink velvet seating and David Shrigley art-adorned walls create a whimsical escape from the ordinary. Book a table for afternoon tea, and team with the theme because that’s how Kath Day-Knight would do it.

Faena Hotel, Miami Beach

Australia’s own Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin had a hand in dreaming up this luxurious hotel’s interiors – not that it’s hard to tell with the heady mix of baroque, animal print, art-deco and gold everywhere. A curious mash-up of fine hospitality and high art, a gold woolly mammoth skeleton by UK artist Damien Hirst takes pride of place in the courtyard because… err, why not? Well, if there’s ever a place to adopt a why not attitude to putting a look together, it’s probably during a visit to the seductive shores of Miami Beach.

Sydney Opera House, Sydney

PSA: how often do you actually go inside the Sydney Opera House? Because it’s actually incredibly retro, chic and worth your time. The curving architectural lines; the fusion of natural materials; the steps! It’s all so Instagrammable (which is really the marker of a job well done, these days). Next time you nab tickets to the ballet, take the opportunity to get fancied up and coordinate with this historic building’s bougie interior. Very worth it.
