Thursday, 18 November 2010

Afro style designToday people are spoilt with the designer solutions offered in any spheres of life to choose to meet the preferences and tastes. It is not difficult at all to find the applicable solution to any problem regarding interior design. And today extraordinary interior design is more than preferred. The hot African style is too exotic to think of something more encouraging and provoking the fantasy. Thus, the Afro style appears to be one of popular styles among those who tend to live in ethnic beauty. Hot Nubian pretty girls and charm f the primitive violent sensitivity felt on the level of subconsciousness, excitement of a lion hunter and bliss of midday African heat – all these are the images the interior provides made in motifs of the black continent.

Approaches and peculiarities of Afro style

This style is close to the virgin nature and thus, it offers use exclusively natural materials like leather, wood (of rough processing), cotton, flax, elephant ivory, natural and artificial stone, ceramics and clay. Rather unusual elements are often exploited when designing interior like canine teeth of predators, натураnatural skin, stuffed animal, wooden and metal figurines of erotic nature. All these elements create the particular note of blend of wild nature and furious passion. Therefore, due to such elements the African is so unique and colorful that is proves to be called one of most wanted interior style for many celebrities who tend to design their cottages and outskirt housing in this style. So, Helen Mirren and her husband, the director Taylor Hackford used the African motifs to decorate their cottage in New Orleans.

The ceramic tile serves as the floor covering in the African interior like the ceramic granite with the torn edges that imitates the natural stone in finest details, flagstone, stone block, floor boards from the black wood or as an alternative, the wood tint to black or the stained wood. The light-color carpet or the natural skin of beast can serve as the core oft the interior in the large space to attract the attention at first sight.

The suitable furniture is from the natural wood, often of rough processing. The interesting variant for the sitting-room is the blend of module wall unit of black color and the sofa of ivory of the laconic design. The simple geometric figures make the rough and heavy furniture more elegant and festive and thus, the afro style implies the clear graphic models.

When creating the colorful feeling of the black continent the folk ornaments  should be thoroughly considered. The ethnic motifs appear in zigzags and circles of bright rainbow colors styled in figures of humans and animals. The color splashes on pillows, plaids and paintings build the feeling of fullness of the space with sun, joy and positive energy.

Masks, necklaces, bulky heavy wooden bowls, wooden figurines of rough work and various ritual elements of the heathen culture add some vivid accent when emphasizing the energy of the place.

The drapery from the velvet with the predator prints, the leather furniture, the elements trimmed with fur and leather, the creamy-chocolate-coffee color gamut to décor the walls, floors and the ceiling plus the high mood are always appropriate.

The interior in afro style requires considerable investments since the furniture from the ebony was too costly even in Ancient Egypt. The high quality durable furniture from the fine wood, ethnic accessories, soft furniture with upholstery of the crocodile or reptile skin cost fortune.  And the feeling of living in such an atmosphere is worth spending assets.

Once you come to the idea to have the African interior in your place, you are welcome to purchase the elite furniture manufactured by BELLUTTI, Еrnestomeda and other manufacturers. So, the kitchen unit by Еrnestomeda with the wenge pane will take you 20.000 USD without built-in units.

Afro style in your place

Your kitchen will sing in accord with African motifs if you choose the elegant kitchen unit with the pane from the exotic tree wenge. The floor covering with the system of heating is required to stroll barefoot at home, whether the ceramic granite of ivory shade, imitating the flagstone or he flagstone itself. Some accessories placed appropriately of lovely color and a couple of black bowls will add some juicy ethnic notes and make the interior completed.

The furniture with the reptile upholstery will be the zest of your living-room. Get the modular wall unit from the thick fine wood of black color or ebony or tint as black. A painting with the ethnic scene or the installation from natural materials matched with the details painted vividly makes the interior more intensive and transcendental.

Cover the plain wooden bed with a skin of beast or a bedspread with the predator print. When creating the intimate atmosphere, get some candles of ivory color. Some ritual masks and authentic sculptural figurines of passionate women shapes fix the reality of the scene. The African style is the luxury of natural minimalism in your house.
