The Furnishings....

The furnishings are organic and textures are of the earth: linen, cottons, sea grass, raffia, sisal, bamboo, knotted leather and sea shells. The organic connection is not limited to the furnishings; the walls and floor are treated with plant oil on the inside and the house uses the African sun as its source of energy.
