From the arid landscapes of Africa to the vibrant colours of fiesta, our home décor is increasingly inspired by global culture

Shifting sands

Create serene spaces with a palette of desert browns and ocean blues. This panelled living room artfully blends quintessentially British architecture with styling influences from North Africa and South East Asia. A leather chesterfield sofa is spiced up with scorching orange cushions and souk-inspired prints, with jute rugs and whitewashed floorboards adding to the exotic feel. The rough-hewn bamboo storage ladder and statuesque palm lend a tropical air, with a subtle ikat print Roller blind in Brindle Spice finishing the eclectic look.

African plains

Textiles have a sun-drenched feel with fade-out prints in heat haze hues. Combine wood, rattan and wicker accessories in tonal shades, from warming and sun-soaked to bleached and worn down. Pepper the look with cushions featuring terrazzo, mosaic and block repeat patterns in cool turquoise hues. A gallery wall of hand-painted plates is a colourful way to display collectables, with lush botanicals adding scale and texture to the space.

Of the earth

For a low-key look, choose a palette of cool, earthy shades, keeping bold colour choices to a minimum. Tan leather, pistachio and pumice hues combine in this individual home office. Mixed seating not only creates textural interest but also invites a variety of ways to use this space, from the formal desk chair to the contemplative window seat. Cushions in muted shades and a tribal patterned throw add softness to the space. A natural Roman blind adds a cosy and stylish finish.

Lost in time

A skeleton chandelier and pared-back styling give this dining space an edgy, primal feel. Bare and untreated wooden planks for the walls and ceiling add to the gritty, textural aesthetic, while crudely made vases, weather-worn stones and hand-carved idols are displayed, museum-like as if ancient artefacts from lost civilisations. At the windows, Wooden blinds, layered with tribal print curtains perfectly reflect this lost-tribe style.
