African Style

I had to share with you these gorgeous photos from San Francisco magazine. Titled “Out of Africa”, I love the colors and patterns in each of these photographs.

As you know, I am fascinated with the reinterpretation of African style, and this African-inspired spread presents a modern, edgy and sophisticated side of the Continent. Typical Western clothing becomes completely transformed in a baby doll dress with rich hues of green, yellow, and blue, and a cocktail dress featuring African tribal designs.

I find the blend of cultures so exciting. It is something I work to achieve in my own interior design. Deeply inspirational, I did my own DIY project this weekend, framing each photo for lasting inspiration. What do you think?

    I love this spin on Africa. It’s such a delicate balance because Africa has been so maligned and mis-understood. I love the textiles. The patters are wonderful and the use of color is spectacular.
