Subtle, Global-Style Sitting Area

Sophisticated fabric and artwork add to this room's aesthetic.

Worldly finds and exotic textiles look more elegant than eclectic in this globetrotting-styled space. Scaled-back accents like a perforated-metal lantern and carved wood screen exude a tailored Moroccan vibe. Leggy chairs and artwork with an African influence look just right paired with an Asian-inspired console. The cool blue and white palette gives a facelift to earthy and jewel-toned pieces. And a simple striped kilim is an easy way to bring the world to your door.
