Room of the week 8.5.09

May 8, 2009


This room at the Hout Bay Manor in Cape Town is a beautiful blend of vintage furniture and bright modern accessories- like the chandelier. The earthy tones juxtaposed with bright pops of colour give a strong African feel to the space without being too themed or clique.

houtbay2I love the old claw foot tub right in the bedroom.


This space is just refreshing!

Room of the Week 1.5.09

As I write this it’s grey and rainy… makes me wish I were in a room like this.


With a great book and a hot cup of tea.

This room makes me happy – it just says Spring! I really love the bold, modern black and white art set against traditional furniture in bright, pop-y colours! And what better to pull it all together than bright fuschia flowers – could they be peonies? (can you tell, I can’t wait till they come out!)

Room of the week

I just love this cozy little reading nook high above the living room. It’s like a secret haven. I think I would have had loads of fun up there when I was younger… and still would.


I love the high ceilings and beautiful windows in this space – beautiful!

Whatever you do this weekend, I hope you take the chance to give yourself an escape from monotony!
