Home dcor that takes you around the globe

 

At the winter exhibition of the Las Vegas Market, a biannual showcase that forecasts upcoming home design trends, it was clear that the influence of the “Eat, Pray, Love” phenomenon had reached interior design. Decor items inspired by exotic travels reigned, from Zen-centric Buddhist iconography to intricate pottery that looked as if it were plucked straight from an artisan’s shop. The draw of the trend seems to tap into consumers’ desires to feel as though they’ve traveled to far-flung corners of the world and brought back treasured souvenirs to fill their homes. Although you may not be able to travel to exotic locales on a whim as freely as Elizabeth Gilbert, it doesn’t mean your home can’t look like it. No passport required.
