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.
Obligatory attribute of the interior is the fireplace. Its presence is mandatory in the living room. Rococo style elements fit excellently. They are presented in the form of furniture made of mahogany. The feet of furniture necessarily curved, the furniture itself has carved ornaments. Furniture is made of natural precious wood: walnut, mahogany, stained oak. Most furniture has carved ornaments, sometimes inlaid with precious stones and metals. Victorian style is unthinkable without the Library, and its contents should not leave any person who likes literature indifferent. Since the interior of a Victorian style incorporates elements of several styles, so here is a certain dependence of these styles on the purpose of the room. The elements of the Gothic style can be found in the figural stucco, huge windows, high ceilings. Mandatory attribute for the Gothic is the fireplace. The presence of the carpet with intricate patterns indicates the presence of Indian style.
