ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MODERN TRIBAL HOME DECOR

The Do's and Don't's of Tribal Style


In a world of fast-consumerism, adding tribal accents to your interior style reflects authenticity, a sense of hand-made craftsmanship and appreciation for different styles and cultures. Here’s how to get it right...

DO ACCESSORISE

Accessories are where tribal decor comes to life. From rugs to decorative items and pictures, these are the pieces that give that tribal character to a room. Gradually building the look with accessories is a more affordable way than splurging on new furniture, and accessories can be moved around easily to mix things up as time goes by. Items that lend themselves really well to the tribal look include wall-hangings, Cameroon headdresses, aztec rugs and fur throws or cushions, especially alongside statement indoor plants.

DON'T RUSH IT

Build the tribal look gradually, piece by piece. This look is all about authenticity and eclecticism, so rushing out to buy lots of tribal style pieces at once could impact this. Also if you’re collecting over time from a variety of sources, you’re more likely to end up with an eclectic non-matching mix of items, which adds authenticity to the overall look of your tribal styling.

DO COLLECT

Pick up tribal style pieces from furniture stores, markets and of course overseas travels. Keep in mind the style you’re after and make it your mission to acquire pieces along the way. Pieces will hold extra value to your interiors if there’s a particular story behind them.

DON'T OVER-DO IT

The beauty of tribal decor is that it fuses so well with other decor styles such as Scandi to create a clean and modern, interesting look. However, if you go overboard on the tribal, things could quickly start looking too heavy and cluttered. Visit our New Tribal Styling Pinterest board to see this style done beautifully.

DO MIX IT UP

Unless you have a penchant for a particular type of tribal style, mix things up with different patterns and pieces from all over the world. African plain tribe style fuses with Asian Hill Tribe pieces, and Middle Eastern influences.
