Out of Africa

Some movies just inspire interior design. Out of Africa is one of the most visually beautiful movies ever made...the contrast of Karen Blixen's stately European furnishings and finery set against the primitive backdrop of the African landscape. Starched white linen, alligator trunks, worn leather pub chairs, carved mahogany, sisal matting, old leather bound books, sterling silver, polished horn, zebra rugs....
