As most of you, I go through phases where I fall in love with a certain color family. In my 20s I was in love with orange… I once even painted my bedroom walls orange (yikes!). When planning for the color scheme for my home today, I feel myself drawn to blues, greens, teals. I opened my closet and sure enough, blues and teals dominate.
I had a clear vision for what I wanted my home to be… a mix of raw, refined, earthy, organic, vintage, modern, eclectic. What??? That’s not enough genres for you? lol. I wanted to capture bits from my favorite places (New Mexico, California, Africa, coastal India, tropical Amazon) and throw it in a blender to reveal one delicious KUFRI cocktail! The trick is in bringing it altogether and that’s where I do struggle a bit. Even being a f/t graphic designer and having my KUFRI textiles line, it is still challenging to capture those elements without it being too deliberate.
Once I started pinning pictures of interiors I love and developing my own moodboard, the material selection started to narrow down.
Here are some of my material selections and inspirations for this perfectly imperfect home to be:
African beads, Moroccan and other global handwoven textiles and brass accents (and of course, pillows!) will bring the place to life.
