Clinton and Diana Grobler of Cape Town, South Africa architecture firm Grobler Architects did quite a number on the cottage. Unfortunately there are no before photos on their website but WOW after some renovating and additions this house is gorgeous! All of the white makes it so calm and fresh. And I really love the kitchen - very cool idea to make everything on the back wall black and the island all white.
I can smell the salt in the air and hear the crash of relentless waves. Sand whipped up by the stiff onshore breeze stings my shins. I squint into the bright light and wonder if I'll trek down to the beach and plunge headfirst into the sea or whether I should be sensible, walk back inside and slather cream into my sunburn. A beautiful location, a beautiful house, a beautiful daydream. Big Bay Beach House, 25 minutes drive from Cape Town, South Africa and available for holiday let. Maybe not a dream after all.
You'd think that after all this time fully immersed in images of beautiful rooms, or should that be drowning in inspiration, I would be jaded. Nothing impresses. Been there. Done that. Ho hum. Next. But you know what? I'm not. I can never get enough. I'm always hunting, searching, devouring. Like today. Today it's the work of photographer David Ross. Beautiful, inspiring. Drink it in. I'm replete.
