Interior designers inspired by fashion designers

Fashion designers and interior designers combined their inspiration to come up with some stunning room designs now on display.

"I think the Tibetan feeling of serenity come through very, very nicely," said James Rixner, interior designer.

James Rixner used inspiration from fashion designer, Josie Natori, to create his room.

"Josie and I are on the same page," Rixner said.

In fact, Josie got her start designing lingerie, but her line has grown to include sportswear, perfume, towels and linens.

Some of those linens were even used on a bed, almost similar in color to some P.J.'s she designed.

It's from those creations that James took his cue, much to Josie's liking.

It is only one room of many transformed by design teams, one part fashion designer, the other interior designer.

All the rooms are on display at the Aldyn on Riverside Boulevard.

Proceeds of the event go to Charitable Arm of the Council of Fashion Designers of America.

Nicole Miller is the fashion designer muse for another room.

The interior designer played off her actual clothes.

Liz Lange the maternity wear designer was partnered with Jonathan Adler, and the result ways a super playful look.

Diane Von Furstenberg's own fabrics were used by the Delrose Design Group.

Every room started bare, and designers had just four weeks to transform them.
