You don’t have to be a world traveler to appreciate design accents from around the globe. Want to spice up your home’s decor with an international flair? Learn how to create an eclectic global decorating style.
How you decorate your home is an individual choice, and many choose a global decor. Collections from travels to foreign lands tell unique stories. If you love infusing eclectic furnishings, colorful fabrics and inventive decor influenced by other cultures, here are some tips on how to make your home reflect your global style:
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Flea markets, tag sales, thrift shops, and even dumpsters are wonderful resources. Scavenging through these outlets you’ll find one-of-a-kind toss-offs that you can infuse into your home at a greatly reduced (or free) cost. When you employ the tenets of green by reducing, reusing and recycling, you use the eco-friendly, and least costly route that leads to less consumption in your life and contribute to the health of the planet.
A World of Good
There are times when you may be inclined to purchase a few interesting and unusual items. I like checking websites like eBay’s World of Good, for inspired global interior decor items. World of Good is the world’s online marketplace that brings thousands of people positive and eco positive sellers and products together. It is empowering to shop in ways that align with personal values. As the positive impact of every product is labeled as being eco-friendly for energy conservation, or people positive for economic empowerment and quality of life of the worker, or it supports animal welfare and species preservation. Often the proceeds from your purchase give back to a cause. The fair trade offerings at World of Good are made by artisans from around the world, and many of the items help people earn living wages that empower them to build thriving communities.
