Out of Africa
African decor is often inspired by nature, wild animals, colourful fabrics and wood carvings, and in the world of textiles this season, Steven is seeing lots of neutral, earth tones combined with vibrant splashes of colour that reflect this ethos. Even if the fabric itself is not from there, he's seeing lots of prints inspired by traditional African fabrics and textiles.
This bedroom illustrates a few ways you can incorporate the fabric, such as in a simple coverlet, drapery panels or in a framed piece. To frame a piece of fabric without spending a fortune, be sure to use a shadow box. You don't want the fabric to be just sandwiched between two pieces of glass — it should look like an artifact or art piece.
