The global style is all about mixing the old and new with vintage pieces, rare market finds, and global imports. The colors tend to be mostly neutral and earthy with bold vibrant colors such as purple and red scattered in between. Overall the ambience is warm, light and airy, although candles and vintage lanterns create a different feel at dusk. Rich woods such as teak and mahogany are often used. The accessories are a collection of items and are rarely placed symmetrically since it is a more free-spirited style. Lots of interesting textures and intricate patterns are used to create the true global feeling.
