Designer Crush in South Africa: Andrea Graff

Andrea MaaseideComment

So I couldn't leave South Africa without checking out the locals.  I happened to come across the work of well-known Cape Town interior designer, Andrea Graff, and yes, I definitely have a crush.  Totally beautiful work!  Straight from Andrea's website, she's "renowned for her warm, sophisticated, sensual and beautiful approach... Her signature style layers antique finds with contemporary cutting edge furniture, and combines objets d'art, luxurious fabrics, decorative patterns, textures and colors with a profound respect for architectural structure and detailing."  Check out some of her interiors (all photos via Andrea Graff) and try to keep the drool in check.

The floor is just gorgeous.  The wallpaper, contemporary clear shelving, more traditional pieces...all perfectly combined.

This mix of colors is unusual, but totally works.  That green is so beautifully vibrant. The combination of finishes and textures is lovely.  And that black and white throw is super cool.

I love the yellow chairs and the small nods to the African locale.

The lines of the bookshelf could almost be tribal inspired and the orange is so pretty, especially when contrasted with the navy and natural wood tones.  And the ottoman is just too much fun.

The blue on the chairs is brilliant, especially next to the small pop of yellow.
