Last week I stayed at a fabulous Airbnb in Observatory that is really one of a kind. The Art House is a stylish cottage full of local flavour and quirky design. So it’s no surprise that the owners are two well known Cape Town creatives, Tracy Lee Lynch and Frank van Reenen.
Tracy is a creative consultant and stylist and her touch is evident throughout the cottage. I love the clever paint effects in the living area and the striking wallpaper choices as well as the pops of bold colour. There are so many details to love though, even the glassware and crockery are stunning!
You’ll easily spot Frank’s imaginative paintings and sculptures which add a contemporary, playful feel to the space. There are two bedrooms which are admittedly on the small side but the heart of the cottage is the stunning open-plan living/dining/kitchen area which opens out onto a private courtyard.
