Interior designer David Bromstad is known for including his own original paintings in the interiors he designs on his HGTV program "Color Splash."
And now Bromstad's fans can incorporate his artwork into their wardrobes, thanks to his partnership with Naturalizer.
Bromstad created a painting for Naturalizer and worked with the accessory company to tun it into floral prints used on spring and summer shoes and bags.
Bromstad is based in Miami so it's only fitting that the collection has a sunny and vacation-y vibe.
Shoe prices range from $39 for a beachy thong sandal to $89 for a wedge sandal with an ankle strap and poufy floral embellishment on the vamp. The collection also includes flats and dressy leather or fabric sandals. Bags start at $30 for a wristlet and go to $85 for a tote-style handbag.
The collection is available in stores and at Naturalizer.com.
