This was the year that I started to appreciate more ornate interiors. Remember, when I punched myself for not accepting the numerous kilim rugs my mom gifted me. That was BB (before blogging). These days, I like to stare at design books to draw inspiration. Like this gorgeously photographed beauty that makes me want to stock up on colorful goods and textiles.
Exotic Taste, Oriental Interiors by Emmanuelle Gaillard and Marc Walter features a whopping 236 pages of rich, luscious interiors, textiles and furniture from Japan, China, India and the Middle East. Seriously, I can’t even get over the details and colors in these spaces.
These floors are killing me softly.
Pink and gold walls. Hell to the yeah!
Pattern overload in the best possible way. The stripes remind me of my favorite duomo in Sienna.
Florals done right!
Fanciful arches – check. Glorious floors – check. Tufted seating – check.
I spy Greek keys!
The good thing about this book is that it also comes with a history lesson. So it’s like education with a side of pretty. Buy your copy here.
