Done right, a safari decor theme is rich and elegant. The key is restraint: Choose one or two focal pieces for visual impact, like a rustic teak table or a natural-finish wood platform bed. Then finish the look with personality-filled accents like a wooden animal-head wall sculpture or a whimsical elephant ottoman. Keep the rest of the room minimal: A subdued palette of solids, in earthy or black-and-white tones, is an ideal backdrop.
Moroccan style is known for its rich colors and mix of complex patterns and textures … it’s a look that’s evocative of the past, with plenty of focus on hand-craftsmanship and history. To that end, these stylish designs will instantly enliven a room with their bold colors and energetic patterns. You can blend them into a Moroccan scheme if you already have one going, or use them as a colorful counterpoint to a more toned-down space.
Art for your inner rebel.
