A contemporary guesthouse in South Africa

Posted on Sun, 26 Feb 2017 by midcenturyjo

South Africa is on my travel bucket list, and this beautifully renovated 1950’s 7 bedroom guesthouse in Stellenbosch is accommodations I could definitively see myself really enjoying. Twice Central is owned by Ané Spies, Liesl Swart and Mandi Smit and they did a wonderful job making this a comfortable, casual and contemporary getaway.

I am always amazed that no matter how beautiful the interior – and I think this one really is beautiful – no one seems to bother finding (of creating?!) an alternative to these absolutely ugly air condition plastic boxes ruining a good deal of the room…

I hope you don't mind this question. I love this guest house and am absolutely mesmerized by the botanical prints/paintings in the bathroom (set of 6 bright florals on black background). Do you have any information on them? I've been looking for something similar and these are the best I've ever seen.
Thanks

Andrea2, you may want to them directly as I'm not sure, but a magazine's website about the guesthouse stated most of the art is by "Mona Haumann, Paula van Coller-Louw, the Walter Battiss Foundation and photographer Marthinus Retief"
