Around the World Home Decor

Love the romantic ambiance of Paris? Are African prints your favorite? Traveler or not, there are plenty of ways you can integrate worldly pieces and create an around the world home decor. Here are a couple of location-based decorating ideas.

Asia

The continent of Asia is known for several breathtaking features, both man-made and natural, including but not limited to The Great Wall of China, Mount Fuji and gorgeous, sandy beaches. People from all areas of the globe visit Asia to get an up-close look at its tradition and charm. Want to add a little Asian flair to your home? Start with your fine China. Impress your guests with breathtaking dinner sets adorned with delicate, floral details. Tea ceremonies originated in China and since then have spread all over the world. Serve your guests green tea in a customary cup to elicit this tradition in your home.

If you’re looking to take it a step further, design a corner of your home to reflect the traditional Indian ritual of eating on the floor. Place a small coffee table, and surround it with decorative pillows for each person to sit on. This eating position is known as sukhasana, which is said to help with digestion. Plus, it brings your family or guests closer together during mealtime.

Africa

Lots of people like to wear African patterns on their clothing and accessories, but there are plenty of ways to integrate these prints into your home, as well. One way to do it? Animal figurines. Africa is full of deserts and jungles with exotic animals like tigers, zebras, cheetahs and elephants walking around. Liven up your home with a zebra sidetable or elephant wine rack.

Don’t be afraid to change up your home’s color themes. Mimic the look of an African sunset with burnt orange paint on the walls, or opt for earth tones to evoke the feel of a tropical rainforest. You can even add a soothing waterfall for a calming effect in your living room.

Mediterranean

This kind of style includes a wide range of places from Greece to Spain to Italy. Mediterranean decor usually includes colors found in the sea and sky with cool shades of blue ranging from teal to turquoise. Design your living room with these colors, with a bright, white couch for contrast. Opt for a glass accent table for your living room to give off that crisp, Mediterranean vibe.

When it comes to styling your rooms, it’s all about the knickknacks. Strategically place antique decor all around each space. Hang up mismatched picture frames on the walls to give off that effortlessly chic look. Don’t forget to combine practicality with style. Your lamps not only serve as a source of light but statement pieces, as well. Stain-glassed lighting can elicit the Spanish look you’ve been searching for.
