However, Africa is a large country, home to a large number of nationalities with their own culture and traditions. When decorating a pan-African interior, the features inherent in the climate and natural features, cultural traditions and certain materials are taken as a basis. The interior is stylized to resemble Africa, where a mixture of elements from different regions and ethnic groups make up a dynamic African flavor.
In order to emphasize the African style, use exotic woods, natural stone and glass. This is the basis of the interior. The most commonly used woods are mahogany, wenge, ebony and rosewood.
The details of the room are emphasized with ceramic and fabric inclusions, glass details. Furniture is needed bulky, in the form of rectangles and circles. Decorated with natural furs and skins of African animals. Used wicker furniture, models from exotic tree species.

Africa is one of the most exotic and even somewhat contradictory interior styles. It combines dynamics, expression and vitality along with calm and soothing colors and shapes of objects. The African style makes it possible, as it were, to lift the veil over something mysterious and touch the world of distant travel, ancient cultures and actively breaks down the stereotypes of the arrangement of stereotyped interiors.
To make the room look brighter and more spacious, use glass in the interior.
With the help of glass, you can unusually decorate the walls, floors and ceilings of an apartment, country house or cottage, as well as public premises. In order to give the rooms comfort and divide the space, use one way glass film
Privacy window film is an easy yet perfect way to make any flat glass surface nontransparent. Privacy window films block visibility and protect from from prying eyes. These films are easy to install and easy to remove when necessary without spoiling the surface. You can order films according to the size of your glass. This film is easy to apply.
The combination of glass, graphic images of various themes, as well as decorative layers allows you to create unique objects.
