While you are next on holiday have a shop around for fabrics, textiles and rugs. These are some of the easiest things to look out for at markets and bazaars and are also quite straightforward to integrate back into your home.
These cushions are made out of old ponchos from Peru!

Pairing cushions with a rug helps anchor the room or area and if you keep your sofa base fabric neutral you can add a wild mix of colour, texture and patterns with fabrics from your travels.

These cushions have a handcrafted South American vibe!
I always make time to find those local fabric markets, not just for that holiday experience, but to bring something back that is handmade, unique and nearly always with a story tell.
