This season the fashion pages are filled with muted olive greens, wearable khakis and looks styled perfectly for your next safari adventure. To embrace the entire trend, not just in your wardrobe, we chose a few simple and affordable ideas inspired by the new season to update your home.
Natural Tree-Stump Side Table ($199) at westelm.com
One key feature to this look is the use of natural materials. We love this unique piece from West Elm. Aside from the strikingly simple silhouette, it’s a multi-tasker it’s do just as well as an end table or a stool.
Basay Basket ($59.95) at crateandbarrel.com
A cluttered room is nothing short of an eye sore. Keep things organized while with this modern take on the safari look. Use the basket to hide shoes in your front entry or store magazines.
Belgian Linen Tufted Coffee Ottoman ($695) at restorationhardware.com
Replace those hard-edged coffee tables for something more comfortable. These ottomans can easily double as a coffee table by adding a stacking tray or art books to create a hard surface where needed, or to just kick up your feet to relax.
Tyrol Horn Cup ($21) at jaysonhomeandgarden.com
Natural and stunning shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. A great addition to your desk, use these horn cups to hold pencils or your makeup brushes.
Box-Weave Hurricanes ($33) at westelm.com
Ready for some romance? These hurricanes will set the mood of a safari tent adventure. Turn off overhead lighting and pretend you’re on a faraway adventure.
