Unique objects, like Balinese baskets and mantel banderas, from The Loaded Trunk provide a warm touch.
Last week we explored exotic sites for ethnic inspired ideas, and I would like to continue our journey with more objects and spaces using ethnic accents. As I mentioned before, the key to incorporating ethnic style in your home is through a moderate use of accessories. As you can see from the examples above the ethnic touches are simple, yet still bring a sense of warmth and comfort to the space. Plus, you don't have to go to faraway lands to find unique pieces (unless you want to of course!). Small furniture, blankets and objects can be found through the web or even at a local shop or fleamarket. Find the perfect piece that adds another layer to your story.
Do you enjoy ethnic accents? If so, I would love to hear how you incorporate them into your style...
