African Inspired Interior Accents and Design

Your Home, Your Heritage...

                        Where you Live can be a great way to "showcase" your heritage, your culture. The opportunities are endless. From paintings , to sculptures and other artifacts, your home can almost become a mini museum. A place where elements of your culture and ancestry can proudly be displayed throughout your home; or, if you simply enjoy exotic  Art or Art itself feel free to lay out your collection and wow your guests as they enter your world...

                     The use of exotic masks and sculptures throughout the home adds character to the space. The different colors and textures of each mask promotes Art appreciation and a sense of openness to other cultures. Do not hesitate to display your African Art, masks ,stone carvings and figurines as each one of them have powerful meanings in themselves and are great accessories to your home decor.
