To me, great design is all about creating a space that is warm, comfortable and inviting. The easiest way to do this is by layering personal touches reflecting the life who lives there. Whether it is a beautiful photograph, a shell picked up on the beach somewhere, or a textile acquired along the way, these details tell a story and add depth and layers to a space. The Nam Lai is the perfect piece to do this. It combines the stunning texture of hand woven cotton with beautiful colors and patterns representing history and community. This piece is neutral yet powerful. I added it to a bedroom dresser to create a layered design that reflects a warm relaxed space, everything a bedroom should be.
