To get a taste of jet-set style, seek out exciting objets d’art while you explore your destination. Don’t be daunted by large items or breakable pieces––many places will ship the item to your home. Taking a voyage to Venice? A hand-blown glass vase will look stunning on your credenza. Exploring Kenya? Hand-carved wooden animals will remind you of your wildlife safari (and seeing the Big Five!). How about a matte black rice bowl from Hong Kong? It will look like a modern work of art on your coffee table, and the prices in the markets are so good, why not get three? Get a Chinese Chop with a hand-carved puppy and you’ll never forget you went to China in the Year of the Dog.
Designer Andrew Flesher, the master of mixing it up, gives us a lesson in decorating with impact.
