A Beach Bungalow

When a well known interior designer saw this house and its location, this is what he had to say. " He said that the painting was outside the window and that whatever happened inside shouldn’t compete with it."

This advice struck with the lady of the house who did the interiors of this beach bungalow herself. The owner Cathy loves a good bargain. She sewed simple slipcovers for her couches and chairs, fashioned side tables out of old wine-barrel lids, used hopsack for her curtains and gave her existing furniture a fresh coat of paint.

There is something so laid back and beautiful about this home on the beach in Cape Town, South Africa. This to me is the perfect place to spend a lifetime by the sea.......the craggy mountains add to the drama and beauty of the place.
