Guest Post: Global influences

Hello again, its Carole here of Dear Designer’s Blog. Lise has asked me to do another guest post for her while she is away on her holidays and of course how could I say no! It’s always a pleasure and I’m so flattered to be asked. Then the tricky bit – what to post. Lise said ‘some design inspiration’. Easy I thought. How hard can that be? Very hard, as it happens. Harder than writing a post for Dear Designer’s Blog! Then I started thinking of Lise in Japan and about how easy it is these days to get on a plane and fly to the other side of the earth. We can travel to all four corners and see for ourselves the differences in our cultures, our cuisines, our dress and customs. It’s very easy to bring back some of that ‘difference’ and infuse our own homes with touches of the exotic. Even if we can’t travel as much as we’d like ourselves, we can absorb all that richness via modern media and we can buy all the goodies the world has to offer via the internet or quite often on our own high street. So here’s some eye candy of interiors that owe more than a little to global influence…
