Guest Room

Steve is on board with decorating the guest room/office!! Yay! So, my idea for the room is to go with a 1920's era of African safari/English occupation. The image below is a tiny picture of my the big dreams in my head... It's a "tent" in Kenya, Maasai Mara - Cottar's 1920's Luxury Safari Camp.

I love the muslin canopy and the dark woods. I'm still getting used to the animal prints. Any ideas for furniture or just little touches? I want to have some wooden savannah and jungle animals and possibly a vintage typewriter. :)

Textiles and fabrics to use: muslin, cotton, raffia, mudcloth, brocade, batik, bamboo, rattan,
Resources of Africa: cocoa, coffee, corn, cotton, diamonds, fish, gold, paper products, platinum, rubber, sugarcane, tea, wheat, zinc....

Right now Africa imports mechanical/industrial things to build its infrastructure. There is a large informal market (usually considered Black Market) that isn't factored into the GDP. Africa is such a beautiful place! I pray we can all help its people learn about God and improve their quality of life. Thank you, Lord, for letting me live in such blessed country as America.
