Thursday Travel to Design: South Africa!

March 27, 2014 Updated: April 23, 2016

We love South African design because it’s the perfect combination of simple modern design mixed in with natural elements! It’s a great design inspiration to draw from for people who want their homes to be stylish but still maintain an air of simplicity.

To get the South African look, first stick with a neutral color palette — think white, cream, beige, black and brown.

Feel free to mix it up with various textiles –nothing too intricate, though! Next, add in some natural elements. Try animal prints or animal skin rugs. Also add in accessories such as plants and natural wooden tables!
