Manyara Home, the retail offspring of event and interior stylist Rouba Alamein, has recently launched an online store full of beautiful pieces that have been handpicked from around the world. If I could choose someone to swap places with for a week then I'd love to swap with Rouba... what a great job!
I thought I'd put together my Manyara wish list of things I must have for my home!
1. African Lidded Basket. You could use this as a washing basket but personally I think it is too beautiful to put your dirty clothes in! This would look perfect sitting in our loungeroom.
2. Vintage Surabyan Mirror. This beauty I would hang just near our front door.
3. Horn candle wall sconces. To continue my love of horns, skulls and antlers these would go in our hall way...
4. Rattan Clutch. Ok so technically not for my home and more for me but I couldn't not put this one in! A perfect summer clutch.
5. Painting in Canvas.
I love both these images and can't decide whether I prefer the black or white background. Although I would love to have them both from Manyara these images have made me wonder whether I could come up with something similar myself... When we were in Kenya in 2012 I took the below photos, unfortunately I am no professional photographer so they are nowhere near as beautiful as the Manyara images (those eyes are just amazing!) but maybe after a play on photoshop I could get a similar effect? I'll have a go and let you know the outcome!
