Nothing says Africa like warm earth tones and for this reason, many African inspired decor pieces feature colors such as yellow ochre, burgundy, burnt orange, dark red and all shades of brown. One cannot also overlook the black and white geometric patterns found in other pieces. Many of these pieces are made from organic and sustainable materials.

When going with an African inspired decor theme the key is to start small. Hand-woven baskets, wooden statues and sculptures, paintings, animal print rugs and upholstery made from African textiles are many features of African Inspired Decor.
