Shack Chic

When you are driving between destinations in South Africa, it is not uncommon to see what they refer to as "squatter villages." From a distance these look like kind of like a town you would make from playing cards. These people have taken anything they could find, mostly cardboard and corrugated metal to build their "homes." What you would never guess is how beautiful these shacks are on the inside.

On our trip, Donna Downey bought this book. She had seen it when she was in South Africa 2 years earlier and had passed it up. She was so excited about getting it finally, that she showed us and Eric and I decided we had to have it too. It's eye candy for anyone interested in design.
