The Approach: Spice TonesFrom cinnamon to coriander to chicory, spices transport us instantly to tropical islands and faraway forests. Infuse their heady resonance into a room by drawing upon their colors. Try vivid turmeric and saffron yellows, paprika and cayenne reds, fennel and cardamom greens or dusty nutmeg browns. Spin the globe: The deep orange sets this nook aglow, and the Oriental rug extends the color into the space and helps to establish the global overtones. But imagine how stunning it would look taken one step further — perhaps with a teak plantation chair or Javanese bench presiding over the corner and rustic Latin American pottery displayed on the tables.
