La Petite Maison

Safari Fusion blog | La Petite Maison | Stylish home away from home in Tamboerskloof Cape Town, South Africa
This two bedroom Victorian cottage in Tamboerskloof Cape Town is as stylish as a city home away from home can get (and even better it is available for holiday rentals!).

An eclectic mix of furnishings and styles are anchored by the calming blue and green colour palate.

Tip: Break the rules and create an element of surprise by decorating a sitting room or formal lounge in complete contrast to your home's colour scheme.

Cape Town travels

Safari Fusion blog | Cape Town travels | The best coffee in town at Haas, Bo Kaap Cape Town
I am in the throws of planning my next Africa trip which always includes a visit to my favourite city, Cape Town. During my week in town I love to visit some of my old favourite places and also discover some new ones.

My go to for great coffee is the quirky cafe Haas, not only is the coffee, food and curated collection of African art fantastic, it's located on the edge of Bo Kaap so that I can stroll some of the streets to view the bright coloured painted houses.

When browsing Kloof Street's stores I always pop into LIM [less is more] for their neutral palate of furniture and homewares. Then a short cab ride to the Cape Quarter in Waterkant to visit my all time favourite store Africa Nova, packed full to the brim with gorgeous colourful African art, crafts and homewares, both contemporary and traditional.

My time in Cape Town always includes a stay over a Saturday so that I can visit Woodstock's The Old Biscuit Mill stores and also the foodie heaven Neighbourgoods Market.

I can't wait to explore you again Cape Town!
