African colour and character

Graeme Wyllie


In our December 2016 issue, we explore pattern and print in the Curate feature. Splashes of vibrant colour and striking prints were brought together to express the exuberance of modern African design. The predominant colours were cobalt blue and bright yellow, primary shades that bring out the best in each other. We put together a feature that will inspire you to bring character to your space while reflecting a distinctively African aesthetic with woven baskets, geometric patterns and wooden accents. Be inspired.
