African chic will add a unconventional twist to your interior design
May 27 2011
Sometimes an unusual accent can be an efficient way of perking up your interior design, and that's exactly what the plan is for Ginger and Wayne Fraser Bell who are the owners of Mhuka Designs in West Des Moines, Iowa. The shop specializes in hand-carved African art and sculptures, which could work beautifully to add a worldly edge to your living space, according to The Des Moines Register.
African chic will add a unconventional twist to your interior design.
Wayne was raised in Zimbabwe, so he knows a thing or two about what he calls African chic. While homeowners don't need to make their houses look like a safari, some small accents sprinkled throughout a living space will make a big difference.
"That's what I called it back in Zimbabwe, because I would mix contemporary with some of the African pieces," Ginger told the news source. "It's just little elements, little touches of it."
Small decorative accents can have a big impact on your home's interior design, but you should place an emphasis on use of light. Bamboo woven wood shades would match beautifully with your African accents, and they provide warmth and privacy to any living space.
