African Inspiration

My dad is a very skilled photographer whose own home is filled with pictures that he's taken throughout his adult life (the little Zoë shots above as a few examples). When I was moving into my first place, I knew that the best house warming gift I could ask for would be the start to my own collection. The three I received, black and whites of ice and water, have hung in my bedroom for the last three years. This past summer, he and my stepmom went on a South African safari, and as soon as I saw the photographs he'd taken, I knew they would be perfect additions to my small collection. We recently received a few prints of our favorite selections, as seen below, inspiring me to explore more safari-themed decor. I would love for our next living room to transport us on a foreign adventure, filled with eclectic, artisan pieces to accompany these beautiful images.

My daydreams lately have been of animal print pillows, intricate vases, woven baskets, and lots of chotchkies. Here are a few of my favorite things...
