A contemporary guesthouse in South Africa 

South Africa is on my travel bucket list, and this beautifully renovated 1950's 7 bedroom guesthouse in Stellenbosch is accommodations I could definitively see myself really enjoying. Twice Central is owned by Ané Spies, Liesl Swart and Mandi Smit and they did a wonderful job making this a comfortable, casual and contemporary getaway.

A New England-style guest house in Brisbane

I stumbled upon a project by Australian interior designer Greg Natale that we appear to have never featured before, which is crazy since we have been obsessed with his work since for the past 10 years (or more If Jo knew him before we started this blog). Maybe it's because we typically die over his typical glamourous, Hollywood Regency projects...and this one is far from that but I'm kind of dying over it just the same. Only Greg could make nautical/New England style this freaking fabulous. I want to be a guest in this guest house - and move right in! From its navy plaids and stripes to its walnut-hued timbers and leathers, this Queenslander has been furnished in classic New England style to create the effect of a lavish country estate. Themed accessories and artworks, such as equine photos and sculptures, and grouped accoutrements, like a series of armorial engravings, contribute to the full, layered feel, while pieces blend Western styling with Eastern exoticism. A band of navy grasscloth wallpaper runs through the house, providing an eye-catching decorative feature but also linking rooms that have been differently configured as a result of the angled roofs.

Magic egg guesthouse

And just when you think it can't get any better...the magic egg farmhouse has a GUESTHOUSE!!! 

A little spot just over a little hill from the Magic Egg farmhouse. The guest house was filled with spiders and piles (and piles) of books when we got there, but it was easy to see the promise of this space. We let the original floors and wood beams steer the style, and kept things simple and light. Textured linens, white plaster, brass accents, some hanging sage from the garden, and of course, some built in bunk beds. It’s the perfect sized weekend getaway. Jersey Ice Cream Co. does it again.
