Salt Of The Earth | House and Leisure

For the October/November 2019 shopping pages, we took our inspiration from the new collection by Opus Botanical Florists and Design, entitled Earth. 

To accompany this range, Opus created beautiful product and photographic imagery – collaborating with photographer Anke Loots – by shooting a selection of moodboard images on the sand and salt dunes of the West Coast. Exploring different terrains, colours and textures, these images inspired us to take a second look at our surroundings – and gave us some ideas for items for our interiors that reflected a similar sort of aesthetic.

'We’re drawn to the colours, shapes, textures and scents found close to the surface of the earth,' says Opus owner Marissa Pretorius.

'Observing and absorbing these will leave you feeling content and calm,' she adds.
