may, 23rd - where we stayed - part II....

day 470:

a few more pics of the amazing place that we stayed at in Cape Town {see day 436}. Doreen rents out these spots as well. one is a two-bed cottage converted from the old wood shed for the Church next door and the other, a perfectly sized studio that was once a garage. 

wooden crate stools on the left, by Animal Farm. inspired by the plastic versions found in African shebeens (drinking halls), barber shops and spaza stalls, Animal Farm calls them an 'ode to every African tale voiced from these seats of hope'. love the messages on the different versions: 'High Hopes - Big Dreams' and 'Short Courage - Tall Stories'. the headboard shows off the original stonework on the right. such a brilliant idea....have to admit to having a attention-to-detail crush on Doreen.

just can't understand why i didn't take more pics.......these are seriously beautiful, warm, witty and most importantly throw-your-shoes-off-relaxing spaces.
