South African Chic Girls Room

A minimalist contemporary girls room with a South African flair – because local is chic!

In this room reveal we wanted to again incorporate what we love about our beautiful South Africa, into a very chic girls room. Modern simplistic designs inspired by Scandinavian styles merged with touches of simplistic South African inspired design. This room is the perfect fit for any tween to teen girl.

South African Chic

We decided to use a blush pink in this room as it is more of a mature pink compared to other pinks and it is an amazing colour to combine with metallics. Using blush pink in an all white interior like we did, will give you that minimalist feeling and adding fun accents will add an instant edge to the room.

We wanted to incorporated some protea flowers in this room design, a perfect fit for this South African Chic girls room!

Greek legend tells us that protea were named after Proteus, the son of Poseidon. A sea-god who had the power to know all things past, present and future, Proteus would change shape and transform to hide from people seeking his insights. Protea Flowers come in many shapes and forms and therefore this flower symbolizes diversity, courage and strength. (See more about flower meanings here)


This Jozi skyline pillow was bought a few years back but I still love it, and it fits in perfectly with this room adding a bit of chic Jozi flair.
