Bachelor pad interior decoration is done with men in mind. For most, that means bold colors, leather and geometric or animal prints. Basically no fluff, ribbons or bows. That does not mean that the room needs to be drab. One can easily spice up their bachelor pad by incorporating African art. When incorporating African art in bachelor pad interior decoration, one should consider pieces that reflect the personality of the bachelor. Pieces should also be based on the style or atmosphere that the bachelor is trying to create. They could be formal, casual, comfortable and most definitely striking!
Some of the pieces that should be considered are sculptures, paintings, framed fabrics, batiks, pottery and rugs. All of these have the ability to create a warm, inviting environment as well as add aesthetic value. African art can be traditional or modern, eclectic or minimalist. The choice is basically yours and can be incorporated into whatever décor style you are working with.
Because African art and décor tends to be inspired by wild animals and nature, it is very masculine. It is therefore quite easy to incorporate into any bachelor pad. If you have ever dreamt of taking an African hunting safari, you can begin living the dream in your décor. You don’t have to design your house in such a way that it resembles Mufasa’s den, but you can definitely put in a few touches here and there that give off a sense of adventure and mystery, which is the spirit of Africa.
Animal carvings displayed on a mantle, tribal masks on the wall, animal print lampshades, animal hide rugs and such can easily be incorporated into your bachelor pad interior decorating. Colors associated with nature such as black, beige, grey, brown, green and white, all very masculine colors, work very well with African décor. Why don’t you take a walk on the wild side and incorporate African art into the interior design and décor of your bachelor pad?
