Native American Inspired Design!

Trending for a while now has been the bold colors and graphics of Navajo and American Indian prints.  You can find these gorgeous graphics and patterns on phone cases, jewelry, clothing and last but not least, interior furnishings!

Check out how the bright and colorful graphics transform this modern chair into a fun and festive focal point!

We keep seeing more and more of these native graphics influencing rug and pillow designs.

This NeBe Green blanket is made from re-processed off-cuts by local artisans and is a fun modern twist on traditional, native blankets.

Native pottery is a classic way to bring in some of this rich heritage to your home.  Let’s take a look at how others use this inspiration for their own designs.

Surfacephilia drew inspiration from native American and  other related items like feather, stones, birds and embroidery to create the “Navajo” collection of wallpapers and textiles.

I love how this living room’s layered native graphics are paired with classic modern furniture lines.

And speaking of classic modern lines, check out these Eames rockers adorned in classic Pendletons!!

This kitchen’s clean lines set a perfect stage for the accessories and décor to nod to Native design.

You don’t have to have a traditional native architecture to blend modern with native.  This living room shows that the two styles can complement each other wonderfully despite the architecture!

What are some ways you can incorporate these classic graphics into your décor?

Destination: Morocco!

From the light fixtures to the tile work, Moroccan design is all about the finishing touches. Moroccan style home decorating invites rich colors of Middle Eastern interiors, dynamic contrasts, traditional patterns and uniqueness of Moroccan decor and accessories.

Small tiles and mosaic designs decorate many Moroccan home interiors.

Moroccan furniture and accessories encompass natural materials of wool, silk, glass, leather, clay and metal. Hand painted and hand carved details are quite prevalent in their designs as well. Then there is the iconic Moroccan lantern.

Moroccan style is not for the minimalist.

For a more relaxed Moroccan theme, try bold cool colors such as this.
