Global Decor and Little Silk Road Shop Giveaway- Closed


Happy Friday loves! Today, I have a very special treat for you. Keep reading…

As a world traveler, I always try to find ways to incorporate tokens and momentos from places I’ve visited into my home décor. This can get tricky since you don’t want to be living in a museum. Nevertheless, back to global decor. One of my absolute favorite ways to achieve that well-traveled aesthetic is to incorporate textiles. And what other than a suzani? It’s a trend, and one that’s here to stay. Suzanis are one of those pieces that can be used in so many different ways all the while keeping things classy. I’m a huge fan! (Keep reading…you’re getting warmer)

Let’s take a look at some inspiration, shall we?

    I did steps 1 and 2 (Pinterest Laura Lee)
    We just redecorated our family room and one was is exposed brick with hard floors in front. This is so beautiful that I would put it in the middle of the floor as it would perfectly bring the floors and wall together.

    If I would win this Suzani I would admire the beautiful fabric, smell it to smell the smell and warmth of Bukhara and feel the joy, love and warmth of the women who have made ​​this Suzani. after that I would make a curtain ( like a gobelin) of it , to hang for my ugly TV so I can show off a beautiful work of art in my living room to everyone,instead of looking at an ugly TV during the day.
