I absolutely loved reading all of the comments on blending style and culture. Here are a few of my favorites:

I love to surround myself with objects that have a story. My Buddha is a family heirloom that came from my Grandfather who got it from an abused woman as a thank-you for taking her in when her family shunned her. And in the same room is a bust of a proud Maasai woman I bought from the man who carved it at a stand in Tanzania…These are just…examples of the meaning behind mere objects that make these items so much more than just decoration in my home. -Chante

I was thinking I should start off small – my stepfather is from Ghana and years ago he brought me a Ghanaian outfit back from a visit and I stumbled upon it in my basement no too long ago. I was thinking of maybe framing it in some way, or even using some of the fabric to make some cute pillow coverings. – Laquita

For me, blending style and culture means keeping it simple yet chic while forcing myself to only bring items into my home that I love and are a reflection of my personality.

LiberianGirl, I hope the book and comments from fellow AphroChic readers can act as inspiration as you define your “African Modern” style.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

    Love the photos today and yesterday. BTW, did you hear it is official that Domino is shutting down? I am SO heartbroken! Not only because I just paid for a two-year subscription but b/c it’s my favorite design mags and one of yours I know, too! :(-Chante
