At the core of Rayman’s design aesthetic are an array of cultural influences, combined into a coherent visual statement. In this bedroom nook, Chinoiserie drapery depicts a series of Japanese scenes. A Greek bust sits atop a Chinese-style console table. And an armchair gets an update in fabric designed by Kelly Wearstler. Mastery of the mix is what makes everything work together seamlessly.
White walls and high ceilings accented by arched entryways set the stage for a multi-layered design moment. The seating is the star in this space with two side chairs upholstered with handira - traditional Moroccan wedding blankets. Behind them a beaded Yoruba Chair showcases a colorful pattern. On the sofa, an Indian Kantha quilt covers the seat cushions accented by Indian block-print pillows. Add to that an ornately carved wooden coffee table, a beautifully decorated fireplace mantle and loads of art and accessories, and you have a perfectly designed desert oasis.
Rich hues of pink and orange create a bold, worldly atmosphere that blends Mexican and Asian styles. The space combines both indoor and outdoor spaces with large windows, natural light and grassy curtains.
If you’re looking to upgrade your outdoor space but don’t want to spend a lot of cash, we have three makeovers inspired by three different countries — Mexico, France and Morocco — to help get some ideas flowing. We used existing furniture and simply added accessories, plants and curated decor to completely transform the look of this deck.
