Interior Inspiration : The Muzungu sisters…

I recently stumbled across a creative sister act who sell a a vibrant and exiting range of ethically sourced wares from around the globe.  Trawling through the “Muzungu Sisters” website has been the final nudge I needed to write a long overdue post on international bohemian style applied to interior design.

In particular the rich ‘ethnic’ fabrics, braiding, pom poms and other embellishments are something that can be incorporated into the home. Below, I’ve trawled through some of my favourite home stores to find some international/bohemian style products…

Finally I’ve included a mixture of other inspiration images, including some finished design schemes which have interpreted the look in a variety of ways. For me the difficulty in applying this look is in trying to achieve an authenticity – it appears that the best bohemian looks are effortless (or at least appear so)… Whilst stores such as Anthropologie provide great reproduction products, the most honest and successful rooms feature collections of much loved, worn and antique articles that provide colourful narratives of the dwellers own travels and adventures.

Alternatively the more subtle use of objects, such as cushions & rugs which inject character and colour into more neutral schemes seems to be a more attainable way in which I might adopt the look successfully (until such a time that I have 1) travelled & 2)accumulated a wealth of interesting artefacts!).combo paired down bohemian design

A touch of neon…

This Post is dedicated to the neon interior design trend. The most sucessful inspiration images I have uncovered use the trend sparingly, using small accessories or artwork to add an injection of colour into an otherwise neutral scheme. Of course there are exceptions, for example the  eccentric home of Australian artist Damien Downey — reflective of his artwork, his interior design scheme pairs bold neons with softer pastels to great effect.

 

Here are a selection of inspiration images, some favourite neon products & “mood boards” to illustrate ways of creating the look @ home.

Interior Design Trend: Herringbone Flooring

Herringbone flooring is another trend I can’t get enough of, it exudes sophistication but its zig-zag lines can also be playful & vibrant in tone. The variety of material options from brickwork to ceramics or wood can offer something clean or rustic in texture that can add depth or contrast to an interior design scheme…

Anyway – I sincerely  hope you reap as much enjoyment from the wild world of herringbone flooring as I have..
