Decor From Around the World

No time for a vacation this year?  Transport yourself to a far-flung place with inspiration from four distinct countries around the world:

Kenya

Kenya is a country rich in textile history. Traditional African fabric designs were used as a medium of communication for centuries, which is where many of the unique patterns stem from. The country also contains the Serengeti desert, where beautiful wild animals like cheetahs, giraffes, and zebras roam the land. Bring Kenya into your home with fabrics that emulate these textiles & animals.

Morocco

From the color-saturated silks to the vibrant-hued spices, Morocco does not shy away from bold combinations. Get the look of Morocco in an outdoor space with tons of bright silk suzani, damask, and striped pillows on a bench against a backdrop of deep pink walls.

China

From the Great Wall to elaborate temples, historical Chinese architecture and decor has no qualms about mixing patterns. A combination of Eastern and Western influences, chinoiserie fabric and wallpapers depict mythical scenes and images of a romanticized China, and carry you away to another world when combined together in a sitting room.

Paris, France

France, especially Paris, is known for its chic and sophisticated style. In both their fashion and decor choices, Parisians lean toward classic colors that never go out of style, like black, white, and every shade of beige. For a room á la France, use silk stripes, textured walls, cream drapery & gilded touches.
