[Colour crush] Yellow

Safari Fusion blog >< Colour crush] Yellow | Mid century modern in a Clifton apartment Cape Town. South Africa
Shake off your house Winter blues by adding fresh, bright and sunny yellow accents to your home.

From rich mustard to crisp vibrant yellow, you only need a touch to bring your space alive. Paint your front door, plant a succulent in a yellow pot, paint a vintage cabinet, or choose soft furnishings like a leather accent chair, ottoman or cushions in this lovely bright and smiley hue.

African street art

Safari Fusion blog >< African street art | Jaws corner Zanzibar Stone Town, Tanzania
I love Melbourne's hidden lane ways filled with graffiti, but I think Africa's street art takes it to the next level.

From Jaws corner in Zanzibar's Stone Town to the tip of the continent in Woodstock, Cape Town you can find street art inspired by Africa's wonderful wildlife.

A green seat

You know when you are saving your favourite Instagram pictures and you suddenly realise you are gravitating towards the same thing, again and again...unintentionally of course!

Well that was the case for me recently, I have been clicking on that heart and saving pictures of beautiful African interiors, of varying styles, that all have one thing in common, green seating.
