Morning to you, my lovely readers! Did you have a happy weekend? The weather was just amazing here in Cape Town and of course being mid-winter, everyone took advantage of this. Everyone was out and about, either walking their dogs or cycling or otherwise whipping up a braai, smells of smoky fires and boerewors were floating about the neighbourhood rather temptingly!
But back to today, I’m happy to tell you about a fantastic new South African online store selling all sorts of beautiful goodies for the home. Fashion & decor stylist, Alexia Kondylis, has created Deep Dark Africa and put together a lovely selection from a diverse range of local artisans, designers & crafters. Be sure to pop over to her new shop and give her some support! Oh and you’ll want to follow her blog this week to see all the opening specials.
I also came across this incredible space yesterday, styled by Nanna Lagerman for Elle Interior. The windows and wooden floors are just gorgeous and I love all the neutral tones and interesting array of decor. I can see lots of pieces from Deep Dark Africa blending into this space particularly well, don’t you agree?
