CURRENTLY OBSESSED: FEATHERS

Feathers have a natural sense of beauty, so why not bring this allurement into your home? By utilizing textiles with feathered patterns, you instantly bring in a sense of outdoor splendor. By using real feathers in vases, hanging dream catchers, or even layering in textiles made of feathers—you can add a soft texture to a space. It’s light and beautiful.

CAMEROON FEATHER HAT

Any art piece can make a dramatic statement on a wall, but a traditional feather headdress from Cameroon makes a bold, textural statement. These vivid feather headdresses are traditionally worn by Village Chiefs in the Cameroon region of central Africa. The bright feathers represent the wealth of positive qualities associated with birds and symbolize prosperity. Between their intense colors and prosperous meanings, we think they make a wonderful piece of art.

THE DARK SIDE OF DESIGN

When incorporating darker design into your home—it’s important to tread lightly.

Here are a few things to try.
1. Dark wallpaper with bright floral contrast. This can make a strong impact and instantly create a mood.
2. Rich textiles that add a layer of lux. The juxtaposition of velvet against a darker space is lovely.
3. Paint a dark wall or buy a piece of dark furniture. Purchasing a piece in black or painting a wall a deep navy makes a strong statement.
