You’re proud of your ethnic heritage. Why not bring elements of your culture into your home as a celebration of all that is uniquely you? With a bit of planning and some lucky finds, you can create an environment that feels like home, even if home base is miles or continents away. Introducing culture to your decor keeps you connected to your roots.

Cultural diversity within a community is one of the things that makes it so special. Use your ethnic ancestry as inspiration for your interior design for an engaging way to embrace your past, present and future and share your culture with others.

If you share a home with others, you can look for ways to incorporate multiple cultures, fusing them into one total design package of distinct personalities, beliefs and backgrounds. Your design elements can pay tribute to the history that brings your family together.

Your culture may be clearly defined or a loose collection of family influences and places your ancestors lived. Perhaps you identify with a culture from a place you’ve visited. It’s up to you to decide how you honor or showcase your own or adopted heritage.
