Safari style or the interior design of African safari lodges was one of the most unexpected and best parts of my trip to Africa. I did not know what to expect when traveling to Africa for the first time but the safari lodge style was love at first site. The style is sophisticated, elevated, rustic yet classic. The combination of textures and materials woven throughout was gorgeous! You’ll find a combination of warm leather, African mudcloth fabrics in browns, beiges and pops of blue as well as woven seagrass rugs throughout the spaces.
You can see how to bring some of this style into your home from a previous post where we discuss lighting and texture.

While we are discussing the beautiful interiors, let’s talk fashion. These beautiful lodges remind me so much of Ralph Lauren and any of them would be the perfect backdrop for their campaigns. Hats, khakis, linens and jumpsuits in shades of beige, browns and olives all scream safari chic.
