Such ethnic style of interior wins the popularity among people nowadays. The general African style supposes cheerful and sunny colors, the color of sun and sand. They match with the blue color of the sky, green color of oasis and jungles and black color of African nights.

The typical material for furniture and interior items is everything natural, that is bamboo, rattan, wood, clay and stone.

The elements of flora and fauna add innate and vivid look to interior decoration. Live plants, as small palm trees, ficus, fern, mini baobab or the interior items with prints of thereof may be placed in the corners or on the walls. Find and decorate your place with pictures, sculptures or statues depicting animals or plants. Skin of animals with fangs and claws is perfect for the floor. Images of lions, crocodiles, elephants, giraffes, rhinoceros and buffalos can be employed on any furniture item. An ostrich hiding the head in the sand or marabou looking from the high to your place will draw unconcealed attention of friends and guests.

The covers, linen and curtains with colorful birds will look stylish and add some ethnic flavor and attitude of something festive and winning.

Rich color and plain abstract forms though somewhat primitive reflect the outlook not troubled by civilization.

First get a picture in your mind as to what you want to create and everything that you purchase or make must fit into that picture, so that it all flows together in harmony. Some strokes of African style are good if you are a changeable person and may change your interior sometime in the future. If you are ready to have African style interior for a longer time, you may decorate your walls and ceiling with more colorful items to match the interior and the general theme.

The best solution for the walls and ceiling is painting or decorative rough stucco work in warm orange or brown notes. Some 'rock African paintings' can be added to the walls or the ethnic room borders.

Ceramic granite is good for the floor that imitates the natural stone or wood. However with any primitive or other style we live in the century of high technologies and consider the heating system for the floor and still, it is hot in Africa!

When you come to furniture, you'd better opt plain, somewhat brutally shaped furnishing without any pretentious elements. If you see your room with lighter elements, choose wicker or forged furniture. And trunks are more likely than European tallboys to the overall theme in the room.

The handicraft in Africa is always combined the art work with utilitarian items assigned for everyday use.

The handcrafted items include tableware, statues, boxes, curtains and covers, forged items, masks and weapon like spear, bow and arrows. Such artifacts will add some exotic feeling and the interior will look more ethnic.

Wooden or clay dishware should be of natural clay color, while statues should be made in dark brown or black colors.

The skin of cheetah or zebra casually placed on the floor will perfectly match the Bushman spear in the corner of the room.

Use masks carefully since you cannot know for sure which ritual purpose of them will affect you.

Maximum natural elements, plainness and artlessness, unique details matching the magic world of the black continent will make the interior peculiar and eye-striking.
