This home, featured in Danish Boligmagasinet, is another variation of the popular ethno-eclectic, globetrotterish, style theme. In it’s base very Scandinavian, palish and raw, yet stylishly refreshed with the ethno-inspired textiles and details. Nice to see some pineapples again! I especially fancy the sofa corner. The bucket of flowers and the painting completes it.
It is the last trembling days of 2010 and our minds are set on the happy new year to come. Trendwise I think the ethnic-eclectic is the most interesting new stylemix. Quite a few recent magazine issues have – in one way or another – refered to the globetrotterish way of decorating. Chicago Home + Garden Magazine (Jan-Feb-11 issue) speaks of the Global Warming trend and Sköna Hem (right pic) celebrates the wayward in their ’2011 Style Compass’: an antiques vs modern boho mix with a cohesive color scheme and a hodgepodge of travel memories, humor and art.
I really like this new globetrotterish style. It’s coming like a bandwagon! These pics are pretty laid back yet they certainly have the ethno vibe going on. Message: Let the world be your oyster.

It has been said ethnic/global styles will be top trendy 2011. There will be a lot more on the etnic interior style theme in the year to come I can promise you, but as a starter I have the ultimate style example. Speaking of finds from around the globe, exotic textiles and that smashing eclectic harmony it cannot get any more inspiring than this!
It’s ultra-trendy and no surprise an interior decorator lives here.
The bench beneath the breath-taking painting is vintage gymnastics equipment.
This is what a home office looks like á la 2011 ethnic style! And below, a globetrotterish room for kids.
