Global Decor + Seamless Integration
"The inspiration to bring global style into your home may be a treaured find from a trip overseas or something less tangible-- a picture in a magazine of the jewel colors of an Indian palace or a film that shows the desert at sunrise. Whatever your inspiration, the aim is not to create themed rooms or display artefacts in a way that shouts "look where I've been." Instead, it is a low-key approach, where global objects are integrated seamlessly with your existing space and possisions to create rooms that are interesting, beautiful and, above all, lived in."
