space: a sitting area with a hint of orange

Apart from the architecture of this South African lodge (the angular ceiling is made with locally harvested thatch and plantation-farmed pine beams), it was the orange-painted corner in this sitting area, with built-in shelves, that caught my attention. What a great way to add a touch of colour to a space, not to mention warmth. The ceremonial antelope masks on the wall were bought in Black Mamba, a bistro and an arts and crafts shop in Vaalwater in the north-east part of South Africa.

  1. Orange is always a tricky colour, at least for me. But this seems to be the right dose of it and it wonderfully accomplishes this room's interior styling! Happy new week my friend!
