3 Tips to Incorporate Your Culture In Your Home

1)One of the simplest ways to ensure success is to begin with an inspiration piece. An inspiration serves as a jumping off point for the entire design and often can make selecting a color scheme so much easier. Art, wall decor, fabrics and other textiles can be just what you need to get started. Use the inspiration piece to create a color scheme for your project and ensure that what you select always ties back to it. 

2)To keep the application from feeling dated, look for ways to add a touch of modern. Perhaps it’s in the color scheme or in how you translate the application of a typically traditional element. For example, if you’re going for southern, florals may likely be a go-to. Choosing large scale floral patterns or ones with a bold modern color scheme (in fabrics, wallpaper, bedding, etc.) adds a modern twist to a southern classic.

3)Don’t overdo it. Themeda spaces can get cheesy pretty quickly. Look for ways to subtly incorporate your theme. If you have a bold piece that you’d like to use, play it up by letting it take center stage. We did this with the very large African mask hung as wall art. Small art pieces, decorative accessories, books and artifacts can be sprinkled throughout the space but be sure to use some restraint. Remember, not every single addition to the space should play to the theme.
