The Collector’s Interior

The Explorer's Study Back
The Explorer's Study
07 April, 2015
You could spend hours in an explorer’s study, rummaging through old maps and photographs, reliving the adventurer’s tales of exploration through handwritten journals and notes scribbled on grubby pieces of paper.

The Explorer’s Study is a calculated collection of artefacts and items, not all beautiful, some curated merely for fascination. In April, this curious space becomes a world to investigate, a canvas to showcase our adventure through interiors.

“Collect things you love, that are authentic to you, and your house becomes your story.” – Erin Flett


A Dogon mask from Mali, copper jackal skull, entomological guide to butterflies and moths, bronze bracelets (Manilla trade currency) and other found objects sit on an old Indian desk.

Behind the table, two metallic birds; a framed butterfly and a lamp sit on the explorer’s shelf.

Two Indonesian glass light shades hang above the table, while a teak chair from Indonesia, colonial prints and a framed image by David Ballam line the study walls.

To the side sits an olive vintage chair for musing, surrounding by Bohero and Makenge baskets.





All items are available at Amatuli

A great and inspiring look. I really like the addition of the neon green to bring a contemporary edge to the look.
