1. Create a Grand Entrance

Greet visitors in style with a front-door display that wows with worldy influence. Animal sculptures from Guatemala and Vietnam fill this exotic foyer and add a sense of playfulness to the otherwise formal space.

2. Effortless Refresh

Textiles from family travels provide easy-to-change global style. Different fabrics sewn on each side of sofa pillows allow you to update your living room in one quick flip.

3. Make a Statement

Bold accent pieces can bring world-traveler style to any space. This handmade dining-area chandelier is a simple yet dramatic focal point in an open layout. A hand-loomed blanket or rug, like this one from Guatemala, can easily be used as a table runner.

4. Dedicated Details

Small accents, like hand-carved pottery, painted dishware, or carved wooden figurines, add personality to blank surfaces like coffee tables and bookcases. Group global finds in clusters of three for a pleasing arrangement.

5. Master Multitasking

Make furniture pieces pull double-duty as collection storage and display. Here, a tall secretary desk with shelves serves as a dressing table and space for global collectibles. Leave a cabinet door ajar to display handcrafted jewelry or textiles.

6. Add Modern Function

Little touches add global style to even the smallest seating areas. Here, a marble-top buffet with a collected look serves as a bar. Patterned textiles on pillows, area rugs, and seating keep a neutral palette from falling flat. 

7. Picture Perfect

Frame posters and prints discovered abroad for artwork with a sentimental touch that shares your history. Hang your finds as a gallery display for a bold accent, or incorporate stand-alone pieces into your existing arrangements.

8. Sit Back and Relax

Instill a sense of escape into your home decor by fashioning a reading nook from global finds. Retreat to plush seating, like this bench reupholstered with vintage fabric, to dream of your next adventure.

9. Tell a Story

Fill your home with items that have an anecdote for a connection to the bigger world. Group accents from a single vacation for a thematic design approach, or weave together scores from a variety of sites for a worldly look.

10. Heighten Interest

Swap out a ceiling fan for a pendant with faraway flair to add intrigue to a globally inspired bedroom. A glass light fixture with a Moroccan vibe suits the eclectic style of this master suite.
