This bedroom by Summer Thornton has subtle ethnic influences without shouting.
In our last Project Design here we talked about doing something dramatic or different in your entry. In the entry by Antonio Martins I love the drama created by the mix of the oversized art, the workbench, the suzani pillows and that fabulous lamp.
This power of this dining space is the combination of textures and surfaces.
I always love a black and white room. This room has so many elements to love.
Here’s how I have incorporated ethnic elements into my own home decor. In one of my guest rooms, I combined an old American sign with American Indian baskets, an antique carving, and two American document boxes. These are all items that I have had for over 20 years.
In my recent entry update, I mixed an Eastern European pot (found at a flea market) with antlers, and I filled an old dough bowl (easily found at flea markets and antique shops) with moss balls and dried saguaro cactus.
Beautiful painting of African Woman by my friend Pat Huber over old terra cotta pot from Poland with mossy branches. Reproduction French Candlesticks, vintage look dog bank on an American Antique Blanket Chest.
Old Romanian Shutters over recently recovered vintage ottomans.
