For this shoot, interior designer DeChelle A. Harris found inspiration from an InStyle magazine feature on Yaya Alafia. Yaya was photographed wearing luxe velvets, furs, embroidered florals, sequined woolens, and embellished silk, all in vivid hues. DeChelle incorporated inspiring aspects from Yaya’s shoot by using bold color in her styling approach.
Color was a major factor in everything from the pillows and throw to the vases, the table runner, as well as the coffee table books. She incorporated texture using glass, a mix of metals, and fabrics.
