This home remains one of my favourites. It is situated in the Somerset West area, close to Cape Town. South Africa. It is so simply and tastefully decorated by the owner, a single mother, who lives here with her 2 children. She has a beautiful shop in Somerset West where she sells antique silver, glass, china and other lovely bits and pieces. I believe she is also an artist - clearly a multi-talented individual. Take a look at her lovely home.
I love the exposed brick in the open plan kitchen.
Open shelving display oil paintings along side vintage crockery.
I love the juxtaposition of this weathered and rustic table and the beautiful French chairs.
Comfort and elegance combined.
Again, luxury combined with rusticity (is that a word?)
I love the white painted floorboards and the bed with it's beautiful feminine curves.

Thatched roof, pergola, cement pots, french doors, large table for outdoor dining - so much to love

So do you also love this home or is it just me?
Till next time
