Main features of African style. In a nutshell, such features are originality, coloring, dynamic, energy, expression and contrast. On the one hand there is the minimalism and simplicity of forms and on the other we have primitive brutality in the decor and in its texture. With all of this, there is the contrast and brightness of colors in accessories and textiles. Typically, the interior reflects the picture of the world, so it uses natural materials and natural shades. Abundance of decorative African art, which are very primitive, are also welcome. Since reminder of the scorching sun, the sands of the desert and the jungle can be traced in the interior of this style so the colors should be respectively determined by such shades like sand, brown, terracotta, orange, yellow, brick and even swampy green. It should be noted that the prevailing colors are yellow and brown (tree bark, charred wood, saffron, honey, baked milk, cinnamon, amber and so on). In general, the colors in the interior should be not just warm but hot as the air of Africa itself. You can also meet a mix of a black with fiery red shade as a reminder of the fire, as well as the color of skins of animals living in Africa. Cautious introduction of blue shades is allowed but only in small quantities and as an accent. In other words, it must be remembered that all the used tones should be natural.
Never overlook sticking with “evergreen” furniture either. While it is nice to stay on top of trends, trends have a tendency to run out or steam (and style) eventually.

Select furniture that coincides with the traffic in your home. In other words, you do not want to select furniture that is over sized for your residence or makes moving around the house difficult. Remember, it is not enough to purchase furniture. You have to do it smartly as well. When you follow this maxim, you will discover your furniture acquisition experiences more rewarding than you ever thought possible.
