DYNASTYby Tim Gunn
Introducing the
TIM GUNN
COLLECTION
Dress Your Bed
“Dynasty is a versatile collection offering two
complete looks in one. Inspired by Chinese
porcelain, this cherry blossom floral adds
elegance to any bedroom. The crisp contrast
of the botanical flowers in soft creams paired
with deep saturated backgrounds adds a
sophisticated air to the collection.” –Tim
Home décor & bedding from
Project Runway’s co-host and mentor
Story by Anne Creedon
Anyone who has watched Project Runway or is in-the-know
when it comes to fashion knows of Tim Gunn. A smart, talented,
and overall likeable gentleman, he knows a thing or two when
it comes to fashion and design. So when I heard he designed a
bedding collection for QVC and that I would have the privilege
of interviewing him about that collection, I was over the moon!
“I’ve always been passionate about interiors, so when this
opportunity came about, I was extremely excited!” Tim told
me. “I believe in delivering high-quality design for an affordable
price. It’s so critically important to design with the customer as
your centerpiece.”
Tim Gunn – Home & Bedding Collection, which premieres
Friday, September 26 at 9pm ET, offers bedding with
decorative accent pillows and sheet sets designed with a
particular point of view, that coordinate flawlessly with each
other. “The idea of the collection is to let me dress your bed
with classic, refined styling and the comfort you would hope
to have to make your bedroom your sanctuary,” Tim explained,
“something we all look for in our master suite.”
“The idea of the collection is to let me
dress your bed with classic, refined styling.”
The collection was inspired by fashion, something Tim has
plenty of experience with: “I look at how you might put an
outfit together, and why should your bed be any different?” But
surprisingly, Tim never planned on a career in fashion. “During
my 29 years at Parsons, I wore two hats—one of a teacher

and one of an administrator. Circumstances brought me to
the Department of Fashion Design in 2000. So, in a manner of
speaking, fashion was thrust upon me unexpectedly. We never
know where life’s serendipitous path may lead us.”
The path Tim is now exploring, home décor, reflects his travels
and the objects in his home. The Dynasty Collection (seen on
page 47) was inspired by the art and pottery he acquired on
his many trips to Asia. “I am insatiable when it comes to art and
antiques from Asia,” he shared. “During my years at Parsons,
my associate dean responsibilities took me to various places
in Asia almost every month for eight years—Tokyo, Kanazawa,
Seoul, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Hong Kong. I bought at
least one piece of art or pottery every trip.”
My husband and I are currently building a house, and I would
have been crazy not to try and get some design advice during
this interview! Tim was more than helpful and generous with
his tips. “Building a new home is simultaneously exciting and
daunting! My advice is to express yourself through your rooms,
ignore trends, and let what you love resonate in your interiors.
A home is a kind of nest, and I love to come home to mine.”
Finally, we all know Tim Gunn has plenty of experience in front
of the camera, but I wanted to know if there’s anything about
coming on QVC that makes him nervous. He confessed, “I’m a
wreck anticipating it! Yes, I have 10 solid years of on-camera
experience, but QVC is an entirely different threshold. I will
say that I like live television because all you can do is move
forward—there’s no looking back. But I’m crossing my fingers
that the segment will be a huge success!”
