The Exotic Indoors

In preparing for my honeymoon to the Cayman Islands this week, it seems I have developed a heightened awareness for all things tropical, beachy, and beautiful. I just can't get enough of the lush, bright colors and exotic prints and textures.  Everything from Schumacher's new line of Moroccan-inspired wallpapers to their awe-inspiring line of feather-covered wallpapers. (Yes, actual feathers!!) Other design companies, such as Tacklebox of New York City, have come up with their own unique spin on exotic interiors.  By covering the walls of the Owen Boutique with paper bags, the store is instantly transformed into an unusual mix of modern art and cabana-like simplicity. To achieve your very own exotic interior, try mixing bright colors and bold animal prints with natural fibers, such as grasscloth and jute, which add texture to the space without taking away from the other colors and patterns.  By adding a few plants to the mix, such as Philodendrons and Dieffenbachia (Dumb Cane), you can blur the lines between the indoors and outdoors effortlessly.

    The feather wallpaper is really innovative. It is an ideal way to bring a sample of the outdoors inside. I bet it costs a fortune though.
