Done right, a safari decor theme is rich and elegant. The key is restraint: Choose one or two focal pieces (like a zebra-print rug) for visual impact. Then finish the look with personality-filled accents like a wooden mask or a sculptural animal figurine. Keep the rest of the room minimal: A subdued palette of solids, in earthy or black-and-white tones, is an ideal backdrop.
These works of art have a beautifully time-worn feel, yet they will fit beautifully into a modern room. Set a scientific tone with anatomic posters from Artwork Enclosed, or Soicher Marin’s framed astronomical charts and celestial maps; lend a globetrotting feel with Artehouse’s wood transit signs from cities around the world; or be cartographically chic courtesy of Avant Art’s framed diagram of Paris or map of the Alps.
The combination of wood and metal, steely and earthy hues, and clean, uncluttered design: those are elements to look for in building an industrial-rustic look. From kitchenware and serving pieces, to tabletop accessories and even rugs, we’ve put together a selection of pieces that effortlessly blend warmth and functionalism. The result will be a space that’s as livable as it is stylish.
Perfect for the office, these art pieces are bold and cheeky, and some have more than a little quirk. Choose from road signs, vintage-feeling prints of old cameras and typewriters, or prints with sayings you just might adapt as your mantra (like Winston Churchill’s “We are all worms, but I do believe I am a glow-worm”).
