i like these a lot, so many different materials and patterns everywhere. so much attention to detail. thanks for the pictures urbanstylin
UR WELCOME, I want to get some inspiration from the ethnic wall paintings which are very detailed
yea I was wondering about those. And the furnishings.. the designs are primarily geometric. There's only a very few pieces with floral or human/animal motifs...
also I'd love to visit the mud mosque!
Urban Stylin, thank you so much for sharing. To say that it is beautiful would be a total understatement. I really love all the different materials, designs and textures used. It is both traditional and timeless and I would love to see it in real life.
Ur welcome, I got to visit it while still in design school and I have to say its awesome, it feels like an African royal palace from another era. The best thing about it is that most of the pieces are relics and have a story behind them.
the mud mosques still exist in West Africa just imagine the contrast of the mud mosque's colour against bright floral robes worn by the locals. I think Liya had a shoot for US vogue in such a place a couple of years back.
Yes, these photos are incredible. I adore African colors, materials, and styles.
