Journeys often begin before you leave, or continue when you come back. Travelling takes you, above all, into a spiritual dimension, that of dreams and the desire for a different place, away from our usual everyday surroundings. This yearning can take on many forms, including that of interior design. The colours and patterns of far-off worlds come to life in furnishing items, ceramics, fabrics and accessories that make up an exotic style expressing a wish to escape, and this is how we can get away even while staying at home.
Terracotta pots, cactuses, bougainvillea, brightly-coloured cushions, rattan baskets, carved wood furniture and a variety of other items express the charm of places that are different, not only as mere details in a design project but a way to put a characteristic and very personal stamp on living spaces. This cheerful, versatile style, which we might define as ethno-chic, does not follow any particular fashion and can be combined to great effect with other design trends, from the more classical to contemporary ones.
