Capture the strength and soul of Africa

Reflect the continent's earthy hues with warm neutrals.

Embrace the essence of Africa

Wild Africa conjures up wonderful images of majestic landscapes, from mountain ranges to open savannah. Capture the magic of Africa’s vast plains by choosing a colour palette of warm neutrals inspired by the continent’s natural beauty.

A neutral canvas

Create an African decor with colour combinations of earthy hues, such as golden ochre, rust red and russet brown, which reflect the range of tones in this varied landscape.

Why not introduce two or three cooler neutrals to your ceiling and wall decor to create a muted backdrop, then add warm sienna browns as feature colours? Here, shades of taupe create the perfect backdrop for pieces of ethnic art.

Striking ethnic accents

You’ll find that red and black are perfect accent hues to accessorise this colour scheme. Keep the furniture simple with soft leather sofas, wooden tables and natural fabrics, such as cotton cushions and a sisal floor rug. Then sit back and relax in this African decor, and dream of the wilderness.
