With the emergence of new media and technology, the world truly is becoming a “Global Village” and cultural hybridization is seeping into every aspect of our lives. This phenomenon has also been witnessed in the A&D world, as many modern homes are an intriguing juxtaposition of eastern aesthetics with western sensibilities. Ethnic interior décor is no longer a niche trend and has been gaining popularity, since it infuses drama and panache in a home. If you want your home to reflect a more global perspective, then you can start by purchasing ethnic throw pillows, signature lighting fixtures, unique wall art or even exotic artifacts. You can also zero into a theme or a country and then decorate accordingly. Listed below are some great examples and tips of ethnic inspired interiors that have a modern sensibility and don’t fall into the kitschy trap.
Magical Morocco

To enjoy a slice of Morocco, one doesn't need to visit the bustling-by lanes of Marrakesh. Visit your neighborhood stores or go online to shop for Moroccan furniture, lanterns, table lamps, armoires, and other accessories. Create a lounge space outside and complete it with a hookah pipe, floor cushions and a wooden coffee table. Wallpaper with a Moorish motif can achieve a Moroccan look indoors as well.

Tribal trends are in vogue currently, and the trick is to incorporate earthy tones in your décor. An African inspired home can be modern without losing its ethnic flavor. This can be achieved by integrating elements made of stone, wood, and other natural resources into your decor.  To achieve an instant aura of internalization, opt for buying affordable African-inspired artwork and artifacts.

Incredible India

Vibrant colors, rustling silks, opulent cushions, stunning chandeliers, and traditional artifacts are all synonymous with Indian décor.  There is a huge influx of Indian inspired home accessories in the western world -- be it bedding, throw pillows, carpets, carved chests, table runners, and wall tapestries. Use velvet, satin, or cashmere drapes, opt for exotic handcrafted wooden furniture, paint your walls in bright hues like pink, and fill the room up with a multitude of cushions.

Eastern Philosophies

Don’t show patronage to one particular country and create eclectic interiors that encompass various Eastern philosophies. For a Zen-like minimalism, opt for streamlined and solid wood furniture, dimmable light fixtures and low seating. Read on Feng-Shui to create harmony or balance contrasting colors to adhere to the Chinese philosophy of Ying and Yang.

Spiritual Japan

Peace and tranquility are important principles of Japanese design. You can easily create an Oriental influenced space by purchasing Asian Tatami mats and screens, splurge on exquisite porcelain pieces, hunt for Buddhist inspired relics, opt for bamboo flooring and place some art on the floor to complete the exotic look.

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% certain. Any
    suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
