Located in Cape Town, Villa Africa is an art gallery that showcases eclectic art and furniture. The gallery features a lot of uniquely designed pieces that are made from a wide variety of different materials. When we visited the gallery, we saw a beautiful art piece that showcased the Baobab trees. The tree is native to Madagascar, can live up to 3000 years, and comes in all sorts of strange shapes. A Baobab tree located in Zimbabwe is so big that it can shelter up to 40 people inside its trunk. The tree blossoms large flowers that open quickly at dusk and produce large berry-like fruits.
Keeping in mind the sand color of the Baobab’s trunk together with the blue used for the background of the art piece, we recolored the Forest carpet by ege carpets for our latest interior material palette. This carpet is part of the Easy Recolor Nature collection. In this collection, we have taken inspiration from natural elements to create beautiful and peaceful designs, fitting very well in the biophilic design trend.
For our interior material palette, we continued the theme of the pale blue and sandy beige colors by choosing materials like the Ulster upholstery, Island Weaves Grasscloth, and Shores Cayman. Additionally, we decided to include pops of green by adding Luce by Maharam, and beautiful patterns inspired by the Baobab trees. OmniDecor’s DecorFlou Design Tree is beautiful glasswork that features tree-inspired designs. To tie it all together, we chose Lavaliere Calcatta to add some pops of gold and Tree Ring Paper by Olivia + Poppy to add some more tree-inspired design elements.
Our Easy Recolor program allows you to choose any of our many carpet designs and customize them with any color you would like.
