Paternoster charm

Paternoster home

Isn’t this the most gorgeous bathroom ever? It belongs to well known food stylist and chef, Maranda Engelbrecht. Maranda’s seaside getaway home in Paternoster on the West Coast exudes calm and a rather romantic atmosphere. A charming mix of antiques together with contemporary design creates the look. I love the palette of grey, white and soft pink which is toned down with wooden accents. Such a nice change from the traditional blue and white nautical themes of seaside interiors. I also love the bunches of fresh herbs in the kitchen, definitely the touch of a foodie! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    I am in love with the cool grey colour that flows throughout the house. And the decor is just fabulous! When can I move in?

    So gorgeous & serene. I really love the contrast of the concrete shade on the walls & the soft splashes of pink! xo
