Decorating the interior spaces of your home or apartment can be fun, imaginative, and rewarding. On the flip side of things this process can also seem challenging when trying to find pieces that matches your personality and design aesthetic. There has been a cultural shift of black people throughout the diaspora wanting to embrace their African roots through culture, education, fashion, and beauty. Most people within this group find it difficult when searching for home decor pieces that will compliment their interest in African culture. There are many African and African American inspired home decor pieces, but for those who believe in the importance of practicing group economics have a difficult time finding black-owned home decor pieces. It can be daunting, but fortunately there are more and more black-owned businesses being started every day. In my search of finding culture-rich home decor pieces that are black owned, I came across many brands that delivered great products that reflected a lifestyle of culture, intellectualism and flair. Although each brand listed embraces black culture they are all significantly different in how they choose to implement it. Be Sure To Share This Post!
