As you may know, Matt and I are planning to go to Africa for our 5 year wedding anniversary, which isn’t for another 2.5 years, but I’ve taken to exploring some pretty digs just for research purposes.

Stanley’s camp in Okavango looks right up my alley.  Not only does it boast the amazing opportunity to interact quite closely with elephants (something on my bucket list), but it’s accommodations and furnishings are downright stunning, and they’re inspiring me (especially this time of year) to add more outdoor elements into my home.

Can you imagine staying out in the open air of such beautiful landscape?

It looks dangerous in the way that I’d go and never want to leave!  The lush, natural surroundings aren’t overwhelmed by the luxury decor, but otherwise emphasized.  In each tent, the view is paramount, but grass furniture, natural colors, and subtle lighting add such a luxurious touch without being over-the-top.

I think there are a ton of elements I’d like to add to my own home, from chandeliers in unexpected places to natural fibers.

Do you like the mix of outdoors and in? How do you bring the outside in at your home?
