Shelly Street's fabulous Cape Town home

Last year I visited Cape Town for the first time for a friend's wedding. I immediately fell in love with the hip style of the restaurants, cafes and shops. Some of the most fabulous homes I've seen are also located in the South African city. This home featured in the August edition of Elle Decoration UK, belongs to interior stylist Shelly Street who has done a fantastic job decorating. I particularly love the rustic touches and neutral tones, just my kind of style...

What did you like the most about this home?

I've now arrived in the chateau in the Dordogne where my sister's getting married this weekend. So unbelievably exciting!  I'm definitely going to have to do a post about our time in the Dordogne when I'm back, we've seen some stunning places. In the meantime, unfortunately the wifi at our accommodation's not working at all so creating blog posts is going to be too tricky over the next few days. I really hope you don't mind if I take a writing check and come back with more fabulous home tours next week?

Have a wonderful week and see you Monday.

PS I'll be on Instagram until then (I've just posted a picture of where I'm writing this post right now - don't look if it's raining where you are.....!


  1. So light and airy!

  2. I admire the white theme! Looks very clean, and makes the furniture pieces pop out. Kudos to the owner and designer! -Patrick Tan

  3. A beautiful home. Love the light, bright feel. Enjoy the wedding!

  4. White linen bedding-always a favorite!

  5. Have great fun and enjoy yourselves!

  6. Oh I just love Cape Town design and style. Their Cape Gables are the most stunning feature in architecture and they are so good at echoing the beauty of the nature in their interior decor. Hope you had a fabulous time in France as well! xx

  7. Wow, awesome, that's great finishing

  8. Wow what a home it is i am really impressed with home designed. I am absolutely sure that it would be interior designed from an expert having year of experience in designing and decorating as well. Only a qualified interior designer can do such job.
