Habitat plus - Global traveller

If surrounding yourself in reminders or inspiration from exotic destinations takes you to your happy place, this may be your style personality type.

As an over-accessorised, warm and welcoming look, this is where Mexican rugs, Moroccan lamps, ikat prints, a sari cushion, a low-slung hand-carved day bed, flax mats and earthen pots come together in an eclectic huddle of nostalgia. As a Global Traveller, your destination pieces may evoke a Pacific rim subtropical look, create a mystical Eastern haven, may reside in the vibrant lands of Northern Africa or Rajasthan, or impart the carefree colourfulness of South America. Or it may have all of these. It’s a richly layered and very personalised look.

Colours to try: Resene Whizz Bang, Resene Fuel Yellow, Resene Gulf Stream, Resene Hot Chile, Resene Citrus, Resene Bright Spark.

You may also feel at home as a Beach Casual, Free Spirit or Country Rustic.
