Refreshing your home and wardrobe is healthy. My aesthetic right now revolves around global chic and hot shades of red...Lots of them. My pad is a mix of Asian antiques, I love using Eastern motifs in my design work and fall's hottest colors are crimson and oxblood.
I love textile design and the many tools that go with it, I had to pick up the hand-carved printing blocks from India when I saw them at a market. International rug company Pavoni gave the most literal example of mixing interior and fashion design with a theatrical runway show using their carpets.
I designed a contemporary felt applique embroidery design using an updated version of chrysanthemum motifs to be used on a coat or cushion...I haven't decided which one yet. One of my favorite decor pieces is the antique opium pipe my mother gave me which features carved silver inlaid with turquoise and carnelian.
Using ethnic inspiration doesn't have to be literal. You can create the palette of colors you want to suit your taste. Make styles your own by changing the fabrication or applying classic motifs in a new way.
