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.
African Interior Furnishing. As for the furniture, it also must be remembered that the natural materials or otherwise their very high quality imitation are a main criterion. If we talk about Africa, the basic materials are such as cane, rosewood, bamboo, sandal, rattan, clay, as well as leather, reptile leather, savanna animals` skins, palm bark etc. The made of wood furniture resembles with simplicity, roughness, and heaviness. Also it has a geometric shapes. Furniture can be supplemented with paintings or carvings. Wrought-iron furniture as well as the wicker one with soft mattresses and pillows, carelessly hanging blankets is appropriate in the interior. Furniture upholstered with dark brown leather, as well as furniture made of bamboo looks great here. Massive timber trunks and hanging racks with rude shelves, hanging on a simple rope directly under the ceiling are widely used as the decor.
