Cynthia Rowley: Design Powerhouse

I love Cynthia Rowley, not only because she's an amazing fashion designer, but because she's an amazing home interiors designer, too. She totally gets the way fashion and interiors feed off of each other. Check out some of her runway designs for Spring 2010:
This is her Manhattan home (very much inspired by her fashion sense, it's almost identical to the dress above!):

She recently designed a home line for Target and I actually just picked up some bath towels at TJ designed by her. Also, if you haven't ever checked out her handbag line, what are you waiting for?
There was an article about her in that Oprah home magazine I told you about, and she had a lot of good suggestions like:
"A house needs surprises-like my bright white bathroom tiles that glow in the dark!"
"Overaccessorizing can spoil a room. That timeless fashion rule-get completely dressed, then take one thing off-also works with interiors. Edit, edit, edit. A space with excessive tchotchkes is unsettling".
I have a feeling we'd be best friends if she knew me. Just a hunch...
Pin It!

    I totally agree Andrea. I am a huge fan of Cynthia. I have spent countless hours scouring the internet trying to find her line of home fashions and have had very little luck. I got hooked not too long ago when I happened to stop in at our local TJMaxx store. I just can't seem to find more of the items i want. Any suggestions?

  2. I am having the same difficulty. Where do you find her bath collection items??

  3. I think you just have to get lucky at TJ Maxx or Marshalls?

  4. Just got a great Rowley bath towel at Marshall's. Wonderful deep colors and interesting baroque/floral pattern.
