Give your home a distinct touch with out-of-the box home decor themes which spell uniqueness

Tribal twist: Afro-inspired
For a one-of-its-kind look, African-inspired home décor can turn any simple room into a unique masterpiece. It draws its cues from the many cultures that grace the huge continent of Africa. Take inspiration from the beautiful flora and fauna of its forests for an exotic appeal.

For the perfect look
Black, browns, red, cream, blues and burnt orange are the main colours that form the foundation of an Afro-inspired home decor. Add splashes of green and blue to add depth. Incorporate animal prints, tribal masks, animal-shaped artifacts or African tribal women figurines to bring in some authentic African feel to your pad.

Zen Zeal
Less is more if you’re looking for an oasis amidst a sea of stress when you return home, zen style home decor may be the perfect answer. The word zen means meditation in Japanese. It is a way of arranging your home décor. Use the five elements for creating your zen ambience: water, earth, fire, wood and metal.

For the perfect look
Opt for earthy and neutral colours such as whites, sky blue or green. Unclutter the space. Furniture should have low-lines in wood, cane or rattan. Furnishings should be pure fabrics like soft silks or cotton.

Colour fusion: Seamless blending
If colours attract you, you’ll surely love this. Deemed as one of the best home décor ideas this summer, colour fusion creates a cheerful atmosphere in your nest. However, the trick lies in combining contrasts with soft neutrals in a fairly balanced manner.

For the perfect look
It’s best to keep the walls and floors in neutral shades of white or beige and let the furnishings and accessories do all the bright talking. Select bright shades such as fushcia pink, bright green, orange, red, sunshine yellow and balance these pop out colours with neutral hues to check any over dose of colour.
