There is a strong influence of Indian decor, paired with a slight Moroccan influence that is being added to interiors the world over. Rich textures, bold colours and a focus on luxury relaxation are a few of the key elements. Bloggers like Bri from DesignLoveFest have found the perfect balance between retro inspiration and subtly placed pieces. Many more examples can be seen not only on Pinterest, but in books like Design Sponge at Home too. This Indian influence hints towards a faraway escape and an exotic land, filled with adventure. What stands out most is the idea of carefully hand-picking items to add a personal touch rather than an OTT approach. Today I want to share my favourite decor inspiration which shows these elements and influence in action, whilst at the same time introducing you to Shanti Decor in order to create the look for yourself. I do so love spoiling you and I have paired up with Shanti Decor to host a giveaway to get you started on your new decor adventure. The hero items of this look are most certainly the throw, pouf and cushions.
Ideally used to add texture to a couch, bed or even used as a decorative wall hanging. The throw adds a wonderful, tactile feel that will create an instant atmosphere. My ideal pick from Shanti Decor is this vibrant blue throw - which also happens to be on sale, it must be a sign!
The second hero item is the pouf. It adds comfort and a unique touch to any room. My favourite use of this piece is in the living room of Bri Emery. This unusual style pairing includes retro furniture pieces and greenery. The bright and interesting Yellow Patchwork and Embroidery pouf is the ideal way to add this interesting style feature.
Last, but most certainly not least are cushions. Cushions are the finishing touch for any interior space and add an accent of style. They offer comfort, but in a luxurious way. Scatter them on a couch or use them for an Indian themed dinner and arrange them on the floor or on a bench. These two cushions are beautifully suited to creating this look.
The cream with bright embroidery cushion and the beige cushion with embroidery and mirror detail are also the giveaway prizes. Fancy that! Nikki from Shanti Decor is giving away two of each cushion cover.
This is a local (South African) giveaway and entries close on Wednesday the 20th November.
