Singita Boulders Lodge, Photographs by Greg Cox Styling by Jeanne Botes

Beat the back-to-work blues by rejuvenating your holiday spirit with a copy of the latest ELLE Decoration Summer Issue (it’s only on shelf for a couple more weeks). Get your copy now and armchair travel with us through all the palettes of Africa; from the beach to the bush, to seaside homes in Clifton, Plett and India, a luxury game lodge in the Sabi Sand Reserve and a vibrant trip through Dar Es Salaam and Tanzania.

Singita Boulders Lodge in the Sabi Sand Reserve gives new meaning to luxury with dinners in the veld, wine tasting with a sommelier, and private swimming pools overlooking the Sabi River. Designers Cecile and Boyd took their cue from nature, incorporating the colours, textures and elements of the surrounding landscape. The palette of charcoal, chalk, bone, rust, copper and ochre echoes the beautiful surrounds and wildlife of the area.

Dar es Salaam city of colour | Photographs Marushka Stipinovich

In stark contrast to the tranquility of the Singita colour palette, is the explosion of colour that characterises the streets of Dar es Salaam. Buildings painted in all hues of sixties splendor, women wrapped in patterned kanga and kitinge cloths, tropical fruit stalls and burning bright sunsets.

Get your Summer Issue while you still can and chase the sun with us.
