Interior Trends AW13: Ethnic

Now that we are so much more well-travelled and it’s not just the preserve of the aristocracy our homes can reflect this.  The ethnic look is still a strong interiors trend, but less obvious, using elements from the Far East in a more subtle and surprising way.  It’s about celebrating craftsmanship and age old techniques in a modern way – less bling and more pops of jewel colours in carefully crafted products.  Why not acknowledge our travels to other cultures and the diversity of what’s available?  After all for a home to feel loved it should be an accumulation of our lives and experiences, curated, of course, otherwise it would probably look like a charity shop!  We live in such a multi-cultural world now why not grab the best of what each has to offer?

We’ve put together a mood board with a few ideas and inspirations for this look-

Have a lovely weekend all!
