The new Colours in Africa shop has opened in Abuja. Colours in Africa has some lovely contemporary African furniture and objets - there is also a shop in Lagos (Akin Olugbade St in VI). Meanwhile, downstairs, Salamander is a tastefully designed coffee-bar-cum-lounge (they do cocktails as well), together with an outpost of Jazzhole bookshop (you can see it at the back of the image). I tried out an espresso - 7/10. There is also free internet access (via two laptops and wifi). Salamander is open 7 days a week, 8am - 8pm.
