We are Africans not because we are born in Africa, but because Africa is born in us, said a famous African poet and we share the sentiment. This Christmas we are taking an authentic stance by celebrating the holidays in the colours that lives within us.
Paintsmiths is more than just a paint company, it’s a family of 35 stores across South Africa. We share the same DNA when it comes to paint and our shared passion of the colours, moods and stories of mother earth.
Colour plays a huge part over Christmas – it’s a time when you open up your home to friends and family and want to show it off to its best. Embark on this festive journey with us in celebrating an African Christmas.
How to bring our South African heartbeat into your Christmas Décor palette starts by plainly looking around you. Draw inspiration from our beautiful country, its people, our art, music and food. Each province brings its own story, beauty and festive personality that can be interpreted into a magical space.
I guess it is important to let you know that you cannot really make a mistake when it comes to Christmas colours, so relax and let your creativity loose.
The key is to keep it casual -once you’ve decided on a colour scheme, scatter ornaments along your table and floors and tie arrangements loosely to the door and in vases.
