About two years ago I took a trip to Peru for a month to teach English at an orphanage in Cusco. I stayed with a woman and her family in the city center during the weekdays, and ventured out to the countryside on the weekends.
Throughout the month I had the opportunity to explore the colorful streets of Urubamba, meet the Uru people living on the floating islands of Lago Titicaca, and cross visit Machu Picchu off my bucket list.
There is really no way to visit Peru and not feel even an inkling of inspiration from the rich colors and intricate Andean designs. With decor trends veering towards minimal with accents of color and texture, it seems like the perfect time to incorporate a touch of Peruvian culture into the home.
