African living styles always radiate a certain kind of power. This powerful atmosphere is divided into three parts; color use, furniture and accessories. When these three parts are combined, the interior is like a powerful artwork.
The color you use defines the atmosphere you want to create. Are you going for a calm and peaceful atmosphere? Then use as base colors earth tones or light gray and use striking colors like green or yellow as accent colors. Are you going for a warm and cozy atmosphere? Then choose a base color such as pale yellow and use as an accent color a light color like beige.
African living styles always emit a certain kind of power and this power comes mainly from the furniture. Robust furniture like a large wooden cabinet or a large wooden table immediately grabs your attention.
What you will always find in an African living style are antique accessories. Especially accessories made of wood, reed or earthenware such as vases, baskets and wall decorations. Special artworks also fits well in this style of living. No small artwork but big eye-catching art, like magnified photos.
To give your interior color, you could use accessories with a graphic print. For example, put on a wooden dining table a pale yellow tablecloth with a print. This makes you feel calm and warm in your home.
