Good morning Monday! With a little “Spring” in my step (pun intended) I am delighted about the weekend that just passed. My kids got chocolate last week and I got my treat this week! Two days filled with vintage shopping and flea market perusing all while welcoming a ’60’s secretary chair in turquoise pleather and a GORGEOUS teak 5 drawer dresser! Can I see a happy dance coming on? Yes I can!
While shopping with my hubby and the kids, I noticed what a trip around the world we had done. English teacups and Turkish ottomans, American “Mad Men” chairs and beachside resort-style bamboo suspensions lived happily in a messy and Oh so dusty container (yes one of the venues was an actual container!!)
It got me thinking about the style we call “global” and its different applications. I realize that “global” is not as much a style as it is a sugar coating we add to any more traditional styles. Hence we see here Global-classic, global-contemporary, global-eclectic, global-Hollywood Regency even… the combinations are endless.
Maybe we could coin global as an adjective thrown in a sentence for descriptive good measure? In reality it would come out to a room with great bones and balanced design and then… Pouff comes in a Suzani print upholstered chair or two, some Moroccan floor pillows, or a Chinese inspired urn or wallpaper.
I know it might be a lot for some of you, after enduring years of minimalism and stark white or soft grey interiors, but whether you ease into it slowly or jump in head first, Global travelling is a trend that is not about to go anywhere (pun also intended!)
