Safari Chic Style A Hot Trend That’s New Again

Safari Chic is a hot style trend that captures the wanderlust of faraway travel first on the runways and now in home decor.

It’s the design style to embrace if you love a neutral color palette, casual rustic charm, and natural fabrics and textures.  This design trend was made for you!

Here are some elements to make Safari Chic Style authentic and your own.

I wish I was going on Safari to bring back some authentic elements.  If you’re headed to the Serengeti shop for both of us, okay.
