Eloise Kubli ASID, a Plantation interior designer, says she has always strived for a global mix but the look has become more prevalent in the past 15 years.
“My clients are wealthy people who come back with treasures and understand what they are seeing. They are starting to travel again and getting away from normal places like Venice and Rome and are going to Asia and Africa.”
A good example of her mix is the guesthouse she designed for clients in Hawks Landing in Plantation. Inspiration came from the Moorish architecture of Seville and Andalusia. The fabrics and three-dimensional art over the sofa have Moorish motifs. The ceiling fixture is Moroccan and the statues on the console are Chinese. “I think you have to use these pieces in an artists’ way so it doesn’t look like you have thrown everything together,” she says. <<<
