Hot Afro reveals the habits of some of South Africa’s most creative individuals through beautifully detailed, full-colour photographs taken by Craig Fraser.
These are interiors that are globally savvy but distinctly South African – spaces that epitomise that passionate Southern energy, vibrancy and soul. Spaces that inspire with colour, depth and the unique signatures of the people who have shaped them.
The homes featured belong to a diverse group of local innovators including stylists, interior-, jewellery and fashion designers, conceptual thinkers and artists: amongst them trend forecaster Neville Trickett; stylist and product designer Laureen Rossouw; Elle Decoration SA editor Karen Roos; renowned ceramic artist Barbara Jackson, and many more.
Hot Afro is a must for those who are passionate about design and beautiful interiors and overflows with visual inspiration.
