When Designs from Around the World Collide …

… they don’t have to clash.

Pinterest lets us neatly categorize images. But sometimes those categories might make us miss some cool combos. My Pinterest feed showed three images I repinned this evening into three different Boards. So they would never be seen together. But in the feed, they did temporarily show up together, and I saw this:

They’re a bed cover, a door and tiles from different areas of the world, but they look kind of nice together.

The bed cover is antique Chinese, Qing Dynasty, and silk satin. Luxurious! See more explanation about the designs on it at mirabile visu tumblr:

The old door is in Biot, France. Found on tumblr where it’s attributed to Hole in One:

And the tiles in this beautifully-simple shower — I don’t know where this shower is, but the tiles don’t look Chinese, and French design isn’t my forte, maybe Moroccan?

Imagine all these elements together in an Old World master bedroom/bathroom suite (including some stone!). Don’t be afraid to mix designs and patterns from different worlds!

Do you have comments? A question? I'm happy to help and give answers!
