Get inspired by Safari

Growing up in Africa was a magical experience.
When I look at the work of Stephen Falke I am pulled by all the elements that touch my soul and of course by his mastery of the two worlds.

Really its all about materials, texture line color and insouciance.
Some fabulous ways to copy this look now

A rug with texture and African pattern & colors also from West Elm
