Safari Chic

Take your living room for a walk on the wild side with this Out of Africa-inspired look from Sarah-Hamlin Hastings of Fritz Porter Design Collective. Tribal prints and a canvas sofa feel safari-chic, but thanks to a neutral palette of beige, black, and green, the mood is one of quiet sophistication. “You don’t want a room to look like a theme park,” Hastings says. “Exercise restraint and mix elements that have a subtle connection without being too literal.”
