Create Conversation and Personalize Your Home with Exotic Accents


What do you consider an exotic home element? That definition has changed over time as our worlds have gotten smaller and our population is more diverse. We now have more access than ever to purchasing interior design elements from other cultures, in addition to bringing them home from our own travels.

Most people consider the following as exotic elements to add to their home décor:

- Indian or East Asian fabrics
- Moroccan or Indonesian end tables and lanterns
- Latin American dining tables
- Japanese ceramic stools
- Polynesian sculptures
- African masks and wall art
 

More ideas are:
- Asian stone sculptures
- Exotic woods with dramatic grains and textures
- Carpets and artifacts from the Southwest U.S.
- Tiles from almost any country
- Rugs from Turkey, Kashmir, Iran and so many other countries

Most of these items are hand-crafted, so you won’t see the same piece in a friend or neighbor’s home! And you are adding to the individuality of your home, especially if you brought the piece back from a special trip.

Keep your room uncluttered - Design Ideas by Mr. K's Fabric Shop in Quincy, IL

The trick is to add enough to make a room interesting, but not so much that the room is cluttered or looks out of place for your life style. A little goes a long way with exotic elements.

Even in minimalist décor, one or two touches of the exotic can work. Choose pieces in neutral colors to keep the zen feeling going strong.

Personalize your decor with an exotic element or two, this year - it’s a conversation starter that will add personality and energy to your home.
