African Chic

A recent post on Desire to Inspire highlighted the gorgeous work of photographer Katya de Grunwald. Having work featured in top interior design publications, including House & Garden, Martha Stewart Living and Elle Decoration, Katya’s work is deeply inspiring. With a range of both personal and commercial work, I immediately fell in love with her portfolio, African Chic.

Featured in Elle Decoration, African Chic captures another side of Africa beyond the generic “safari style”. Here, African style meets couture with elegant feathers, detailed textiles, bold shapes, and refined color.

Here is just a peek into the work of this London-based photographer. Visit her site to see more of Katya’s beautiful photography.
