African garden themed decor ideas for your outdoor sanctuary

Create a soothing refuge with African themed garden design and furniture.

African garden inspiration

by Ellen Kinsey |

If you are looking to revamp your garden with a laid-back ambience, take inspiration from the land of the Sahara, and that doesn't have to mean Safari glitz. An African garden theme doesn't need to be filled with flashy prints and leopard spots; instead, you can create a soothing sanctuary with North African bronze lanterns or black and gold accents.

If you are looking for African garden ideas and inspiration, opt for black curves, rustic rattan, simple gold accents and subtle animal ornaments to create a pared-back feel. Keep cushions and throws in a neutral colour palette to ensure the gold and black take centre stage.

From cushions to lanterns to vases and rattan furniture - here is our pick of some stunning African themed décor, furniture and accents that will bring a warming ambience to your outdoor space.
