Your home is your place of refuge and comfort and should reflect your own personal style, taste and culture. The way you decorate the interior of your home should say something about you, reflecting who you are and where you’ve come from. By using your own culture as inspiration, you can effortlessly incorporate it into the interior design.
Adding decorative pieces that are directly linked to your cultural background can be worked in well with other styles you love. Beautifully woven baskets, bead and wire art as well as carvings can be successfully incorporated into a modern home and can live happily alongside the glass and chrome, adding colour and texture to the environment.
If you are a global citizen, you can decorate your home with accessories that reflect your travels around the world. A gorgeous rug from a trip to Guatemala or some amazing silk cushion fabrics from Thailand can be incorporated into your home to tell a story and to bring back cherished memories of the different countries and cultures you’ve encountered.
Regardless of popular styles and trends, implementing a touch of your own culture and experience into your interior design is likely to draw others in with its unique and personal charm. Allow your culture to weave into your design through different colour palettes, photography or art.
Highlighting culture in your home’s interior can also be a great way to represent both you and your partner’s individuality, while living under the same roof. Create balance with different styles, beliefs and preferences.
Let your personality shine through your design choices, displaying what is important to you through the atmosphere you create in your home, and giving your living area an intimate touch that displays your uniqueness.
