International style inspiration

Looking for style inspiration is the same as looking for inspiration when decorating a home. We often look to other parts of the world--exotic architecture, colors, foods, and landscapes. It helps to create that eclectic style so many of us like to incorporate into our home decor.
On a style note, think about the patterns and textures of clothing that you enjoy wearing. For me, it has always been oriental patterns with flowers or butterflies. I enjoy silky fabrics and kimono sleeves--always have and always will. This clothing inspires me and makes me feel comfortable. This season I'm ready to incorporate something a bit different, though.
Color has always inspired me, but nowhere have I seen more beautiful motifs and color contrasts than in Greece. White combines with all variations of bright blue and metallics. Incorporating white as my principal neutral, I'm going completely Greek this spring and summer.

Live in color!
