We live in a stunning country with so many beautiful things around us to give us loads of inspiration. Why not include some beautiful home décor items in your favourite rooms to showcase some of the incredible reasons we love to call South Africa home.
From the animals around us to our national flower and the colourful words we use to show our heritage, there’s so much to inspire a few subtle touches of superbly South African elements in your home…
1. The Protea is a stunning flower that automatically adds a bunch of prettiness and bit of home-grown charm into your space. For a bold statement, bring the print in on a scatter cushion (R180, Woolworths), or for a more subtle touch, a simple mug (R35, @home) will do. There’s also always the real deal for a pop of colour and life (R89,99 for a bunch of Proteas, Woolworths).
2. We’re lucky to live on a continent that is not only wonderfully diverse, but conveniently shaped in a way that makes it an awesome décor piece. Show off your heritage by bringing Mama Africa into your home on a stunning canvas (R550, Macaroon) or quirky little coasters (R229 for 4, yuppiechef.com).
3. Prove that local really is lekker with a few super South African buys. An animal print canvas (R549, @home), heritage cushion (R79,99, Mr Price Home) and even a table runner (R159,99, Mr Price Home) are small ways to ensure your home décor shows visitors just how proudly South African you are!
