A little eye candy to celebrate end of second week of inspiration from Africa! By the way, have you checked out Paint and Pattern’s Pinterest page yet? If not, what are you waiting for? It’s vibrant, inspirational, colorful and full of pretty pictures. In honor of Africa month, let us give you a small glimpse at our ‘Inspired by African Design‘ board.
The iconic bead chair in the above image is created by Ikumba Design Studio, a brand created and run by an Africa based architect and interior designer named Marlene McGuire.
The authentic Kuba cloth chair in the images above is from Desireé Ashworth’s blog Décor De Provence. If you are looking for some gorgeous functional settings inspired by French, Gustavian and Belgian decor, this is the blog you want to go to. Speaking of Kuba cloth, you can learn more about how its made along with a cool DIY that was done using Royal Design Studio’s African Stencil patterns on a recent post titled ‘African Kuba Cloth Panel’.
We are having a ball exploring the world of Africa this month through its art, architecture, fashion and culture. Which art form from this beautiful country do you like the most? Is it the bead work, the kuba cloth furnishings, African artifacts or is it African fashion? Pin and share with us what inspires you. Happy Friday and Happy pinning!
