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.
A contemporary white sofa dressed with patterned pillows pairs with leather-and-wood armchairs and a geometric glass-top coffee table. Global-inspired area rugs are layered on top of a natural fiber rug for texture and style.
This spacious bedroom has a decidedly global feel, with closet doors crafted from a blown-up photo the client acquired in Bangkok. A cork accent wall provides both a conversation piece and sound absorption, since the wall is shared with an upstairs bathroom. Casual textiles complement the unique artwork.
This bright and open guest bedroom features an eclectic mix of furnishings and fabrics with a decidedly global vibe. An exposed brick column brings an element of earthiness to the space that's extended by the rough-hewn beam that serves as a display shelf near the ceiling. Across the room, closet doors feature a blown-up photo the homeowners brought back from Bangkok.
