Celebrate African-American History Month By Adding Some Exciting Elements To Your Décor

Whether it’s animal prints, beautiful baskets, warm earth tones or art objects, African inspired décor is just what you need to spruce up any room. And because African inspired décor is as diverse as it is timeless, you’ll have lots of different themes to choose from.

Let’s focus on your dining room. Start with a fresh coat of paint in an eggshell, off-white or light sandy color. Next, change out your wall art and add baskets. Pick baskets that have intricate or arty patterns. Handmade baskets are the best as they add to the rustic atmosphere of an authentic African room. The baskets can be of different sizes and shapes.

Choose one that is fairly narrow and long with an open weave so that your light is focused on the table with subtle light escaping the open weave.

Last but not least is the table, chairs and area rug. A beautiful rustic wood table will complete the look. Try mixing up the style of the chairs to add to the rustic charm. Finish off the room with a custom made Delos rug.

Let the team at Decker Ross Interiors pick the perfect pieces to make your new dining room special. Your friends will be envious and we guarantee that you’ll want to spend as much time as you can in this warm, inviting, African-inspired dining room.
