A Converted Farmhouse Becomes A Rual Hideaway...

The brightly painted white buildings of this converted farm stand out in the green countryside on South Africa's Western Cape.

The couple collected many vintage Danish pieces and reupholstered found furniture- all in a neutral color scheme.

A favourite vintage sideboard- the rustic quality makes it more beautiful.


Love the contrast of the warm wood tones with white paint and white slipcovers.


Tables become vanities topped with vessel sinks for the baths.


A collection of vintage art from London looks perfect surrounding a mirror and vessel sink.


The homeowner designed this wooden painted headboard to mimic their farmhouse gable, the chandelier is also a custom design made of hollowed-out ostrich eggs- ingenious!

A lovely four poster canopy bed is painted bright white-looks beautiful with the carved detail.
