A South African Country Home

You might have noticed I’ve been been posting infrequently as of late. I’ve been preoccupied with a project and excited to finally share the news with you. We just purchased a vacation home! It’s super thrilling and I can’t wait to share more details very soon. All I can say for now is that it’s a fixer upper of immense proportion (gulp). So you can imagine that my Pinterest boards are filled with design inspiration. During my search for “farmhouses” (hint, hint), I stumbled across this charming country house belonging to South African interior designer Gregory Mellor. Inspired by the grandeur of the desert-like region of Klein Karoo, just outside of Cape Town, Gregory was determined to restore the unsophisticated character of the age-old farmhouse. I love the play of rustic textures, bold colors and unrefined details. I’m taking notes . . .

    There is truly nothing more serene or authentically South African “Africana” than an old farmhouse in the Klein Karoo…… such beautiful light and space!
