African interior style mainly features natural materials: wood, cotton and linen fabrics, natural textile wallpaper. Flooring should be natural (wooden) as well. You can put beautiful rug with bright ethnic patterns on the floor.


The furniture in African interior style should, of course, also be wooden. It can be decorated with interesting fretwork, colorful thread or textile, or simply have uncovered natural texture. Talking about the colors, African style requires furniture of dark shades – brown, black and other colors.


Decorating your house in African style, use ethnic figurines, plates with authentic ornament, the wicker furniture, buskets of various sizes and artificial horn.


To add some character to your African decor, hang up posters, photographs, and paintings featuring wild animals and wild nature of Africa.
