Global Inspired Accessories

Travel abroad is inspiring for all of the sights, sounds, and flavors we experience, but it also has a dramatic impact on the way we decorate our homes.   Design elements from the east have influenced interior design over the decades, and internationally inspired accessories are again surging in popularity.  

Global inspired textiles possess amazing hues in spice and jewel tones arranged in traditional or bold patterns crafted with threads of saturated color.   Many retailers and designers have been so inspired by their own travels they are now including Moroccan or Indian inspired fabrics or accessories in their seasonal collections.

Remaining in the interior design spotlight are quatrefoil and trellis patterns, burnished metals and carved wood furniture.  Suzani and Ikat patterns from Asia continue to be as en vogue as Dhurrie and Kilim rugs, block prints from India, and lanterns and pendants with Moorish styling.
