One of my current clients has quite a few french inspired antiques that they would like to incorporate into their new house, yet they also want to bring in a tribal/african motif.  How to marry the two?  See what I came up with for their Living Room:

I decided to use the ever French looking Grey/Yellow and Creams palette with pops of Orange and Purple and Berry to bring in the more tribal accents which will make their presence through pillows, window coverings and artwork.  This warm and fun, yet sophisticated palette is my current favorite!
