Inspired by Native American Indians

In my post Inspired by Indigenous People I wrote about how all  ethnic or cultural groups have their own way of decorationg themselves and their homes and environment - sometimes very paintful ways! But of course we are also inspired by each others cultures - every culture is in it self a mix of inspirations. Diffrent "ethnic" styles comes back in fashion and interior every now and then. The latest year or so I have seen a lot of patterns and items that have some assocciation to indigenous people or very old cultures - aztec, navajo, sami, tribal...

Today I picked out some images and items inspired by Native Amercian Indians.

In my Daily dose of quirkiness I want to show you that the Native American Indian inspiration stretches all the way to things for our pets, like this cat-tipi :-)

Spännande bilder. Fint med tipin och lyktorna som hänger i trädet. Jag har faktiskt ägt en drömfångare, men den har numera hamnat på villovägar. Katten verkar ha det bra in sin egen lilla tipi, :0)

Har krafterna börjat komma tillbaka? Hoppas det och att veckan flyter på.

Kram Hanna
