A renovated farmhouse in South Africa

Posted on Sun, 26 Mar 2017 by KiM

This is a beautiful 1840’s Cape Dutch farmhouse located in South Africa. I am totally smitten with its neutral decor and all the wood floors and beamed ceilings throughout. I could go on about it but I am slightly drunk (I’m writing this Saturday night) having spent a few hours hanging out at a Legion with some of my favourite people on this planet and it’s got me thinking (I clearly don’t drink much). I have a love affair with interior design (also pretty clear as Jo and I have had this blog for over 10 years) but this past week has really done a number on me. Hanging out at the Country Cat Sanctuary last Sunday whilst managing not to bring home any cats and staying late at work every day this past week with each day being more hellish than the next, and managing to find time on Wednesday evening to go see Kedi at the movie theatre which, being the crazy cat lady that I am, really moved me, and going to a vintage show yesterday and finally leaving 5 hours later where I got to meet some awesome new people (and one vendor I was hoping to visit with was at the hospital with a bleed in her brain) and spend some quality time having drinks with the always fabulous ladies of social enterprise HighJinx whose lives are devoted to helping others….it just makes me stop and think about the important things in life. I am grateful for this blog and this community and my passion for design. So enjoy these wonderful photos of Herbertsdale Farmhouse, and I hope it inspires you. Via VISI. (Photos: Jan Ras)
