THE MANY FACES OF RATTAN, WICKER AND BAMBOO IN YOUR HOME
Natural elements add the textured brushstrokes to your interior canvas ~
Two of my favorite home decorating “to do’s” is re-purposing and using textures, whether it’s in the form of baskets, reclaimed woods, antiques or textiles from indigenous communities around the world. Even though there are definitive decorating styles historically, I’ve seen a blurring of lines over the years. Contemporary interior design may unexpectedly showcase a vintage chair or antique collectibles to add a special twist to a room…and then coastal inspired homes often times provide the backdrop for an Asian antique settee or antique chandelier. It’s so much fun to explore with your senses when you walk into a house and don’t know what to expect!
I must admit I had a tough time deciding on the rattan, bamboo and wicker examples I found. It was like stepping into a decorating candy store! Each one of the inspirations that I did find though work for me on many different levels….so dive in and see how your choices compare to my own!
I hope you’ve enjoyed searching through these rooms as much as I did. Maybe you found an idea or 2 for your own interior design! Be bold, be beautiful, and be at home! Til next time…
