‘it’s like little Italy in east Africa’. British model Naomi Campbell has showcased her airy villa on the Kenyan coast.

In a video interview with the Architectural Digest magazine, Ms. Campbell, who was appointed Kenya’s tourism ambassador in January, walks through the villa professing her love for Kenyan-made furniture and art.

The villa is roofed with dried coconut palm leaves, locally known as makuti. Ms Campbell during the interview says she loves furniture made in African countries and often collects pieces from different countries. The 50-year-old style icon and philanthropist said she had visited Malindi in the 1990s and fallen in love with the Kenyan coast.

Naomi says she is committed to using her considerable platform to champion all of Africa’s 54 countries. “I love all of the African continent; there isn’t one country I love more than another, and I want that to be clear,” she declares. “Each place in Africa has something magical about it.”

“It’s wonderful to go in July,” she advises. “All the animals are crossing over from Kenya to Tanzania, and you see everything. It’s incredible. It’s like seeing National Geographic come to life right in front of your face.”

Her villa is located in a luxury resort that has other private residences.
