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.
Decorative finishing the ceiling. Regarding the ceiling we can recommend you to paint it in a warm or white. By the way, the fabric right under the ceiling is perfect draping. And if you want to do something more original then fasten beams of dark wood at the ceiling and lay a reed or bamboo stalks on them. By the way, bamboo plates are not just for flooring, but for the ceiling. They are fixed directly to the basic ceiling or on a crate of suspended one, and everything contributes to the creation of an extraordinary sense of presence in real African hut. While much of the African décor you find may be in browns, blacks, and other earth tones, you can add boosts of color throughout the room with beautiful accessories. African colors echo the brilliant reds, yellows, and oranges of a sunset, as well as the brilliant greens and blues of the grass and the sky. Use these colors in pottery pieces, throw rugs, afghans, lamps, pillows, and other décor.
