African accents are making their way into more to homes. Let’s cast an eye over some of the key elements of this trend and explore some ways to incorporate accents of this effortlessly luxe – but never at the expense of comfort – style.

Wild and bold prints are the best descriptions for safari themed home decor. The African inspired home decorating style makes use of animal and tribal patterns to come up with a stylish, warm, and inviting home. Adding African and Safari themed ideas to your home is a great way to inject a feeling of adventure into your rooms.

Colour is very important in creating the feel of an African safari, so decorate with earthy shades. Browns, creams or golds on the walls echo the colours of the African savanna and carry the added benefit of warming the atmosphere of any room. Accent colours like rusty reds, burnt oranges, and olive greens, on the other hand, complete the look and keep the space looking natural and inviting.
