African inspired decor is having a major moment in the interior design world. The specific trend that I find keeps holding on is the juju hat. In Cameroon, the country where these unique hats originated, tribal chiefs and dignitaries wear the hats during official court ceremonies to make them stand apart from other citizens.
They provide such a focal point and often times a pop of color in a room. I think they can replace what would typically be a mirror above a mantle or above a bed or even act as a piece or artwork. They lend themselves to both traditional and modern decor. See how beautifully juju hats are incorporated into the homes below:
These bad boys are not cheap and a nice one will cost you upwards of $500. However, there are all kinds of DIY versions on Pinterest. Maybe in all of me “free” time!
What do you think? Too out there or a unique accent?
