Consider Four Unique Home Decor Styles

There are a wide variety of home decor themes to choose from that are as diverse and unique as we are. Just a few authentic pieces, which can be obtained online are enough to bring out a theme.

Depending on your budget, Egyptian decor can consist of antiques or faithful reproductions. Statues and sculptures of Egyptian deities are common. Egyptian style candle holders, urns, vases, mirrors and other home accent pieces are quite striking.

Asian Decor

The Asian style of home decorating incorporates design elements from Japan, China, Thailand, and Indonesia. Using any one influence could suffice although combining different design traditions creates a richer texture. The colors red, black, and gold are typically used. Asian decor often includes depictions of the Buddha and of the indomitable Asian dragon.

African Decor

African decor is not particularly colorful but it is very interesting. The African theme draws its inspiration from nature.
