If your bedroom is looking a bit tired, perhaps it is time you give it a makeover with Shoppypal’s inspiring Autumn/Winter 2018 Out of Africa collection – a mature, masculine style that blends raw beauty with the enduring richness of tradition.
An idealistic interpretation of a safari lodge, Out of Africa characterizes classic colonial design with quality and comfort at its heart. An earthy colour palette provides the perfect backdrop for chunky furniture, dark woods, studded leather, hides and lux fabrics, while subtle lighting adds atmosphere to a cosy, lived-in look.
A few show-stopping pieces in dark wood are all you need to recreate this boldly beautiful boudoir. Here, a curvaceously carved four-poster bed, antique-inspired cabinet and desk cum dressing table, along with a stylishly studded leather chair, make a dreamy combination. As we all like our creature comforts, think luxurious layers when it comes to snug snoozing. Go for cool white cotton with an authentic patchwork quilt and throw in a couple of cushions in old gold for eye-catching contrast. Contemporary modern area rugs will not only provide plush comfort underfoot, but will also help tame the macho feel a bit. As for accessorising, a framed zebra print, horn candleholder and hexagonal-shaped animal hide mirror will enhance the African ambience with great effect, but remember that adding your own curios and knick-knacks is the only way to personalize the space. For example, if you have a passion for travel, keep the world at your fingertips with a gorgeous globe or if you are a bookworm, opt for a chic, vintage-looking lamp to aid night-time reading.
Unleash your creativity and make all your wildest dreams come true with a little Out of Africa inspiration from Shoppypal.
