They kinda look like a big flower but in actuality they are feathers. The hats are from Cameroon and according to many sites they are traditional hats worn buy prominent members of society as well as Juju dancers. They come in so many different colours and hung on the wall like art - they add interest, texture, and colour. Plus, they are so beautiful to look at. You may have noticed them in design mags since they are not too uncommon, but they're not yet as common as say...decorating with the Ikat print.
Lovely, eh? The other ethnic item on my list I just discovered last week.

Do you see what I see? That awesome pillow on the sofa? Ya, I know. You can barely see it but I LOVE it. This home was featured on Design*Sponge and the homeowner noted that the fabric was an African cloth called Kuba cloth. A quick ebay search brings up tons of cloth for sale - it's not cheap but I still adore and want it. You could maybe even frame a piece...a nice long rectangular piece...yeah that would be sweet. A google search leads you to online retailers selling pillows.
Ah, the list of things I covet for my apartment is never-ending. But before I can get either of these I MUST. BUY. PROPER. CURTAINS. or SOMETHING for my windows.
What about you? What's something you have your eyes on for your space?
