Think woven accents: Try redecorating your bedroom with woven wall tapestries and decorative plates. If your room is currently an understated sight with plain white walls, these wall arrangements can bring your room to life. Meanwhile, gleaming polished hardwood floors, printed bed sheets and a large woven basket help to finish off your space.

Try decorating with tribal print pillows: Rich, luxurious shades of chocolate brown, mahogany and cream help to create the perfect setting for your living room. In fact, eye-catching tribal print accent cushions can update your cream sofa in one simple step. Whether you want to host company or just create a comfortable space for yourself, bold tribal patterns are key.

Turn to wicker and bright colours: For a top-to-bottom take on African décor, consider indulgent shades of orange and red. From bright, tangerine print curtains to a couch emblazoned with red and blue patterns, think welcoming and punchy hues. Meanwhile, wicker furniture, a printed accent rug and a tribal wall tapestry will transform your space into a beautiful, globally inspired setting.
