Hello Homelovers! I’m back today talking more about adding global décor to your home. On my last post I discussed how to add global influences throughout your home, without going over board. Today I will be giving you some more practical ideas made easy by a awesome new line at one of my favorite stores and also a My Style Monday feature…World Market!!
If you have walked into their stores within the last couple of weeks you probably noticed a few new things up front and center. The fall 2012 Kingdom Animalia Collection! It’s a well traveled eclectic collection of unique items inspired by the warmth and culture of Africa.
Walking through the collection you will find everything from animal printed textiles, fur covered pillows to rustic binoculars and globe inspired letters. You can use these items to add some interest to your space as well! You may not have traveled overseas but with this collection you’ll have your friends wondering if you DID!:)
Faux fur can be a fun way to bring in texture to your space. Whether it be in the form of a pillow or rug, this look can really help ground a room. World Market is all about the details and you can certainly tell by looking at some of their accessories. I love the fur trim pictures frames! Adding a punch of zebra to a room is SO fun!
Maps and Globes
For a more authentic, global look, maps are the perfect highlight. World Market went big with large size Africa maps that would be perfect over a mantel or an empty wall to really make a statement. For a more refined, well traveled look you can use globes on bookcases and accent tables. No one ever gets bored spinning globes and browsing maps:0)
Baskets and Bowls
I love the collection of different baskets that they had on display. They can easily be functional by adding blankets, toys and magazines to help organize your space! Adding texture to a corner of a room can really do a lot to a space. I think it instantly gives a room a more homey feeling! Bowls are perfect for placing keys in or setting on a coffee table for extra storage as well. The ones at World Market have a really fun pattern on the insides and outsides. So if your needing to add that element to your space this is a wonderful and inexpensive option!
GLOBAL CHIC IN THE HOME
Reggie and I recently ordered a new sectional! Which should be here in a few weeks. It was definitely time to move on! I think I rubbed that poor thing to death! lol!. But with that we are losing some much needed storage under our wood top side tables. So when I saw these pretty textured file holders I knew I had the perfect space for them.
I attached a set of chalkboard tags that I also picked up from World Market and added some cute zebra patterned folders to finish it off.
I also picked up this furry friend. I have a my fair share of fur pillows, mostly because I like to pet them…lol..but I love how this one has a more neutral look with just a touch of chocolate. Plus it totally reminded me of chocolate and vanilla swirl ice cream! Here is sitting pretty.
