Colonial living

While window-shopping this rainy Sunday, we were rather taken with the look of this "lifestyle" shop in Fish Hoek with its two East African guards. I am always amused by colonial-style decor - we Africans are trying to shake off the memory of colonialism, yet the concept is immensely popular in decor and in the luxury safari business.


  1. Yes so true, Caroline. It appears all over in South Africa. Thanks for the post. Have a great week. Greetings from Jo, North Africa

  2. I have to agree. The colonial theme is VERY popular in game lodges.
