Rustic Retreat

I can't remember ever stumbling on a home quite like this one! Featured in the South African magazine Home and photographed by Adriaan Oosthuizen, this amazing Paarl Valley home features a compromise of style between the two owners. He wanted the elements of a rustic farmhouse filled with leather and wood, she wanted femininity. I'm particularly fond of the lighting in every photograph. And that fridge!!! I'd love a week away here to unwind!

Wow, Erin! I love this post! Really inspiring. Love it all! I want to live in that house. Rustic places are so charming!

Now, I need to share this with you. When I was preparing my post about SPA INSPIRED BATHROOMS and saw the first picture I thought about you... I think you'd love that bathroom! Let me know what you thing. If was right, ok? :-)

Have a great day, Erin.

I love the first photo. That corridor with those beautiful old fashion lamps- really great! And I don´t like those modern kitchen- this blue cabinet is my favourite!

Hugs, Ines

Can there ever be too many fabulous sets of doors leading out the terrace? I think not.

Jeez, this place is just wonderful! Those ceilings go on forever. And yes, Erin, that refrigerator is awesome! Love everything about this place, especially the lighting and the sense of volume and space.
