Get inspired with these folk art finds to create a magical folkloric hideaway.
In case you are wondering just what we mean, today’s folkloric decor and design is inspired by primitive art styles of Scandinavia, Mexico, Peru, and other countries and cultures of the world. It’s an appreciation for the timeless and simple aesthetics of primitive folk art. And primitive is not intended as a pejorative, but instead denotes the difference between the arts and crafts. Primitive folk art by definition is the culture of the peoples of a region.
So, if you like the homey style of primitive folk art, here are some fabulous folkloric finds you can add to your own home.
