Born out of the landscape of the African savanna, safari style is a dynamic combination of primitive architecture and the high decorative style of European explorers in Africa. From tree-house camps and thatched bungalows to lodges akin to small luxury hotels in the wild, the 26 lodges featured in this volume come from the southern African states of Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Earthy color palettes, patterns, and textures are paired with the luxury and sensuality associated with the colonial safari to give us a romanticized version of "roughing it."
Accompanying 200 glowing color photographs is a inspiring text that will entice any home decorator into transforming a city apartment or country house into a home reminiscent of any of these African locales.
Lodge addresses are provided for the intrepid traveler, and a source list makes it easy to find everything you need to recreate an African atmosphere with elegance, simplicity, and vitality.
