This past week we saw the passing of a Super-Star of music, fashion and pop culture with the passing of Prince.  When Prince released an Album or put on a show, the music was as equally as important as the style of this icon entertainer.

When it came to style and fashion Prince did not just follow a trend, he created the trend.  His high collars, high heels and lace gloves sparked global conversations about how a man or woman should style himself or herself.

The style of Prince was seen on runways in New York, Paris and Milan.  The trendsetter has influenced designers like Donatella Versace, Tommy Hilfiger and Matthew Williamson.

On the stage of music, Prince’s ability to combine color, shape, size and sensuality has directly and indirectly influenced styles of Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes, D’Angelo and Justin Bieber to name a few.

When it comes Interior Design, we see ways where the style of Prince has translated into the world of Décor.  There are not many artists dead or alive who will forever be associated with a color or a pattern.

Prince’s love of the color purple has transformed the way we look at the color.  No longer the color of a Grape, Purple can be seen in carpeting, wallpaper, and fabrics in all of its glorious shades.

No doubt his love of the Paisley Pattern has influenced the name of the song and later his 55,000 square foot mansion in Minneapolis.   The lyrics of Paisley Park describe a “Utopian Space” that one can feel in its heart.

Thanks to Prince, people the world over are creating bold and unique styles in both Fashion and Decorating.  Trends may come and go, but true Style can last a lifetime.

Translating style to design takes individuals who are experts in their field.  You will find these experts at Elite Carpet Workroom with their combined experience of over 100 years in Custom Carpeting Design and Installation.
