Lele Sadoughi lives in a Dallas home with next-level design she proudly refers to as maximal. “Color is everything,” says the accessories designer. “A mood booster and an inspiration to my creativity.” This upbeat, more-is-more POV extends to her taste in art, as well.
Can you tell us a bit about your new house in Dallas and the inspiration behind it?
The Lele Sadoughi aesthetic is maximal and colorful. I have designed my house in the same way. I have a dozen rooms with colorful wallpaper and a peach kitchen.
Many of the furnishings were found in estate sales and vintage dealers, and I love mid-century and post-modern pieces. Lucite, velvet, malachite, and brass are found throughout the house.
What do you love the most about the Light Up series created by Carla Sutera Sardo?
I adore Carla Sutera Salso’s pieces because they are fantastical. Beautiful, colorful gowns glisten in water with disco balls. What is more joyful than getting dressed up and wearing your pieces?
I make accessories that are meant to be enjoyed, and I think Carla’s images show the joy of dressing up. Plus, they fit perfectly above my green and pink Italian lucite benches.
Color is everything. I painted my office lavender, so I feel happy and serene at the same time. Color is a mood booster and has been an inspiration to my creativity.
You need to try to experiment. Make a mood board, and you will find you pick the same things over and over. This will give you the confidence to try the style.
Paint and a nice piece of art are good ways to make a statement without a huge commitment.
At Lele Sadoughi, we have over 15 different accessories, from jewels, headbands, hand bands, sunglasses, hats, belts, and more.
This year, we introduced wallpaper, and I hope to as more interior designs to our categories. Accessorizing your home is just as important as accessorizing yourself.
