Stylemaker Secrets: Creating a Global Look
Craving a global look? Designer Bridgid Coulter shows how to bring worldly style to your favorite spaces.
I love the global, collected look because it's personal and inviting. And interesting and textured. Here are some tips for how you can get that personalized, global look in your home. [MUSIC]. The way that I start this global, collected look process [MUSIC] Is to start with a cohesive concept. That gives me a basis on where to go. And then I think about my self, or my client. Where are you from? What are you drawn to? What are the places that you've gone that you've seen things of interest? And what's your personal style, and how do I put that in my home? So once you have that plan then you can start layering in the elements. Start with a great rug as your basis. And then layer in the pillows and the textures and all the things that you wanna put in that. And the, and the pieces that you've found that you wanna display. So when you're looking to create this global look, I think it's really important to start to gather your items that you're gonna use. And you may have a lot of them already but, you can gather them from your trips. You can gather them from your locale. There are little gems in every city. So, when you have all of your elements laid out, you're gonna start to edit your. Yourself, and really start to comb through your items, and find what do you have the most personal convection to. What brings you joy? What's beautiful to you? It doesn't just have to be pretty, it should mean something because that's what you're gonna pass by every day. And what's your story that you're telling with what you lay out? [MUSIC]
