To give this space an extravagant feel, designers chose dark wood for the bookshelves and filled those shelves with first additions and other collectors' items. For the furnishings, a leather couch and chair sit just below the shelves, and creating an exotic vibe, a zebra-skin rug, completing the lavish library.
The neutral walls in this entryway are the perfect blank slate for a gallery hanging of family photos. Simple hardwood floors keep the space feeling warm while the zebra skin rug keeps things neutral but fun.
The dining room has a modern, tropical vibe. Midcentury modern Chinese wishbone chairs surround a white Saarinen tulip table. The green upholstery brings home a pop of color. The shade is echoed again in broad, leafy plants in the window. A zebra skin rug below the dining table enhances the dining area's global sensibility, giving the space the feeling of a faraway resort.
Dramatic artwork and a long wood cabinet keep the colorful style of this eclectic living room from feeling precious. The floral curtains deliver the biggest hit of pattern; a solid blue sofa and aqua walls temper the small, busy print.
Located on the fertile banks of the Okavango River, this casually elegant home-away-from-home is worlds away from a typical hotel suite. Constructed to resemble a tent, this bedroom's canvas walls and ceiling contribute to the open, airy feel of the space.
