The ethnic style is back in the decor. Warm, dark colors evoking the East or Africa, natural materials, printed patterns and organic forms, all of which will find their place in our contemporary interiors while adding a touch of ethnic style.
Opposed to minimalism, ethnic style accumulates the objects brought back from travel. The atmosphere is warm, cozy and the materials are natural like wood, wicker, metal or leather. The colors are warm and deep and the shapes are rather round avoiding rectangular objects. Use patterns printed on cushions or bed linen but sparingly so as not to load the atmosphere and slice with other more neutral elements.

This colorful and warm style will complement the modern interior design. Some ideas :
